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?
Fano’s P-90 pickups are voiced just a bit darker than many other brands of P-90 and sit very nicely in a maple-neck, alder-body build. In the neck position you will find loads of warmth with a signature P-90 “edge” that you don’t get from a similarly-warm humbucker. The middle position yields a beautiful sparkle with wonderful support underneath. The bridge position combines a snappy top end with a smokey middle register. This makes for a fantastic bridge position tone that has bite and body all at the same time. This guitar sits well in front of clean and overdriven amps alike.
How Does It Play?
The early 60’s-inspired C profile is temperately slim, but with a nice amount of shoulder to support the hand and thwart fatigue. The contoured neck heel makes those upper-fret transitions smooth and effortless. We do a thorough check and make the occasional truss rod, nut or saddle tweak to make sure the guitar plays exactly to our liking. The string action on this one measures just 4/64” at the 12th fret on the low E string and barely a hair over 3/64” on the high E. Very low without any fretbuzz.
