Like what you see? Photos are of the exact instrument you will receive. The video at the end of the gallery features a JM4 Standard Limited in Blonde with the same exact specs.
Offered in the US only through Guitars To Be Played, we are incredibly excited to announce a special Limited run of Fano JM4 Standards!
This run features Lollar Thunderbirds and Schaller tuners, not normally offered on the Standard series. With a full 34” scale length, the Lollar Thunderbird pickups are tight, responsive, and big on the low end. If you appreciate a bass that is thick and punchy yet incredibly articulate all at the same time, this one will quickly become your go-to. Double stops and chords retain excellent clarity; single notes are full-bodied and completely gratifying. The tone knob dials in the punch and “bite” and is musical throughout its entire sweep.
How Does It Play?
The Fano JM4’s impress us time after time. The neck profile is a nice medium C with enough shoulder to fill out the hand. The sanded down finish on the back of the neck is sealed fast and smooth with tung oil. The neck is straight, the frets are nicely dressed and the action is low and easy down the length of the fretboard.
