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?
Warm, smoky midrange on the neck pickup. Tight response, beautiful sparkle and a splash of “quack” in the middle position. A healthy bite from the bridge pickup that can be perfectly tailored with the tone knob. Hybrid picking will bring out a touch of Tele twang, while big chords yield to a bit of natural compression that can be even further sweetened by rolling back the tone. The Fano P-90 pickups are very balanced in this guitar and achieve a variety of stellar tones without putting you through the wringer sculpting your amp EQ.
How Does It Play?
This beauty sets up with the string action measuring just 4/64” at the 12th fret on the low E and 3/64” on the high E, without buzz. The frets are beautifully dressed and polished. 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 lacquer is sanded off the back of the neck for a smooth tung-oiled finish without any stickiness when things get cooking.
