This GF6 Alt de Facto was a shop guitar that Fano kept on hand for folks to demo. They decided to thin the herd and offered it to us. It comes with the full Fano warranty. The guitar features a poly finish instead of the usual nitro, and has a couple of small finish blemishes from being demoed. We have discounted the guitar accordingly and have included close-up photos so you can take a look. This one also features a unique two-piece neck heel, a little different than their standard offering.
What Do We Think?
This guitar provides a huge sonic palette for the pair of TV Jones Classic pickups. They sound deeper, smoother and “bloomier” than in any guitar we’ve heard them in before, while of course maintaining the silky clarity that makes them distinguishable from traditional humbuckers. The Bigsby B5 is a nice touch as well; this guitar is equal parts rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll on the bridge and middle positions. There is ample mid-register “bite” on the bridge and a snappy, articulate sparkle in the combined position. On the neck pickup you’ll find a sultry warmth and beautiful harmonic content befitting pop-inspired interval lines à la Maren Morris’ “The Bones.”
How Does It Play?
The string action measures just 4/64” on the low E string at the 12th fret and even under that on the high E. That’s without any fret buzz. The moderate C neck profile leans neither too far to slim and “modern” nor towards fat and chunky. It sits comfortably in the middle with a good shoulder and nice taper as you climb the fretboard.
