Today, Leica has announced a new special edition camera set, the Leica M Monochrom “Signature” by Andy Summers. Designed with guitar legend and former member of The Police Andy Summers, the camera is definitely striking. From the high-gloss black finish with silver controls and striking red engraved signature that spans the entire top of the camera, to the photographic montage of Summer's own photography printed on special leatherette, the Leica M Monochrom “Signature” by Andy Summers is boldly styled.
Along with the camera, for a cool $14,995, the set includes a matching 35mm f/2 Summicron-M ASPH, also trimmed in high-gloss black paint with red and white engravings, a Fender Guitar-inspired black leather strap, and an Oberwerth black leather carrying bag with red contrast edge stitching.
This set is adds to the existing line of rock and roll influenced special editions from Leica Camera. The M Monochrom “Drifter” Set and M-P “Correspondent”, both by Lenny Kravitz, Leica Q “Nikki Sixx Edition” and the M Monochrom “Jim Marshall Set” all played off similar themes, yet each is extremely unique. I'm sure fans of The Police or Andy Summers will be interested in the set. To make things even more interesting for collectors, Fender will simultaneously be launching a Signature Edition Andy Summers guitar.
