Like what you see? All photos are of the actual instrument you will receive.
Each Fano Oltre series instrument is handbuilt in the USA using an old-growth North American Alder body, maple neck and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The result is a resonant, lively instrument crafted with care and precision. This series allows for a number of customizations, from color to pickguard, knobs to pickups. Models can be built with either a maple or rosewood fretboard to meet the needs of a variety of players. If this isn’t the exact Fano you are looking for, contact us to spec one out precisely to your liking!
This guitar has some growl! Even acoustically, lay into that low E and be prepared to go along for the ride. And plugged in, we just love the FanoBird pickups with a maple fretboard. They come across thick and warm, yet tight and precise. The tone knob dials in the perfect “bite”. The bass sounds killer through a PA and in-ears alike.
How Does It Play?
This bass sets up very nicely with string action measuring under 6/64” on the low E at the 12th fret, and down to 5/64” on the high G. There is no fretbuzz. The neck has the 1.5” nut width of a J-bass and a profile that is more reminiscent of a 60’s Oval C on a Precision, especially given this one has the finish left untouched on the back of the neck for a slightly thicker feel.
