Allphotos are of the actual instrument.
One “FanoBird”to rule the roost. Our very own Jim Smith purchased the first one of these thatwe had come through the door. Fano absolutely knocked it out of the park withthe pickups, design and feel of the JM4. The tones are thick and deliciousthrough the lows and mids but always matched with clarity and precision.Playing up the neck? Still warm and tight. The tone knob dials in the punch and“bite” and is musical throughout its entire sweep. The bass sounds killerthrough a PA and in-ears alike.
These are handbuilt in the USA with a resonant nitrocelluloselacquer finish on the body and neck. One builder from start to finish. We can’tspeak highly enough of the relic’ing Fano is doing on their medium distressoption. It really lends not just to the appearance of the instrument but alsoto the feel, with the finish broken in and worn smooth in all the places you’dexpect after having an instrument on the road year after year.
How Does It Play?
These come in setup pretty nicely right out of the box fromFano, but we still do our due diligence of a thorough check and a nit-pickysetup. Our resident bass player has this one dialed in. The worn finish on theback of the neck feels just right from the moment you first pick it up untilyou (finally) put it down. You won’t have any trouble feeling at home with thisone for a four-hour gig.
