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 MG6 Oltre is a straight-forward, rocking build. The MG6 model features a full 25.5” scale length on a Mustang-inspired body for a bigger, bolder take on the classic. This one features a pair of Fano’s humbucking pickups, ready to dish out plenty of throaty midrange sandwiched between a rich bottom and smooth top end.
The Gotoh 510T tremolo is a superb piece of hardware. This one features a solid steel block and steel saddles, giving the guitar some wonderful piano-like attack and sustain. The tremolo arm twists in AND features an adjustable collar to make sure it is always snug and responsive. This unit will even do some good dive-bombs with ease.
The guitar is decked out in 4-ply tortoise pickguard on an Aged Cream medium distress finish. Clay dots on the fretboard complete the vintage look, and the back of the neck is sanded down nice and smooth for that wonderfully broken-in feel.
How Does It Play?
The neck profile is a moderate “early 60’s” C that leaves enough on the shoulder to support the hand and prevent fatigue, while affording a thin enough profile for blazing fretwork. Fano does an impeccable job dressing and polishing their frets and this one is no exception. The string action hovers right around 4/64” at the 12th fret without any buzz. The body is nicely contoured front and back to round out a superbly-comfortable playing experience.
