Information

Brand New w/ Warranty. We are an authorized Fano Dealer.

Like what you see? All photos are of the exact instrument you will receive!

Each Fano Oltre series guitar 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!

 

What Do We Think?

This Tobacco Burst JM6 is a really cool combination of classic aesthetics and unique appointments. This alder body offset comes with a Lollar Mini Humbucker in the bridge and Firebird in the neck, quickly becoming one of our favorite pickup combinations.

The Mini humbucker in the bridge of this guitar has a strong and nuanced midrange that nails some classic rock tones. The high end is clear but not too bright, having some aspects that sound like a beefy tele bridge pickup. There's a punchy low end despite it being a mini. It tapers off where a humbucker could tend to be muddy making for a well EQ'd bridge position that works well with high gain. 

The middle position sound is really cool with this pickup combination. It has flavors of a strat in the 2nd position but with a little bit of added compression. Moving to just the neck, the Lollar Firebird is hard to beat when it comes to a clear and articulate neck tone. We've really been enjoying these in the JM6's and this one is no different. When played clean, chords and fingerpicking sound piano-like. When throwing in some gain, you've got a great tone for sizzling blues licks with a hair of swampy mojo in the lower mids.

 

How Does It Play?

The string action hovers right around 4/64” at the 12th fret… hair above on the low E and below on the high E. There is no fret buzz. The frets are dressed and polished beautifully. The contoured neck heel makes those upper-fret transitions smooth and effortless. The worn neck finish delivers an immediately broken-in feel and is tongue-oiled smooth and fast, while the early 60’s-inspired C profile is temperately slim with some good shoulder to support the hand.
