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?
The Fano P90 pickups deliver a delicious, rich and smoky midrange. Pairing them with a maple fretboard that brings out a little extra clarity and immediacy to the note attack, this guitar delivers tones that are simultaneously warm and punchy with a perfect snappiness on top. The neck position has a big and balanced low end, sweet middle register and beautifully-voiced highs that just might make your clean tones bigger than you’ve ever heard them before.
The bridge is thick and meaty while retaining a defined top end. Bold but not overly strident. It handles gain nicely and responds well to the tone knob when you want to get that humbucker-inspired creamy midrange. The middle position is crisp and punchy with a full, broad EQ range. It brings your clean passages to the front of the mix with ease.
How Does It Play?
Worth noting, this JM6 delivers the feel of a slightly larger neck profile thanks to a thick slab of maple used for the fretboard. It fills out the hand like a generous medium C, even leaning towards a nice late 50’s chunky at the upper frets. The string action measures just 4/64” on the low E string at the 12th fret and nearly down to 3/64” on the high E. This is a fabulous neck all around.
