Information

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

Like what you see? All photos are of the actual 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?

The Fano MG6 provides a full 25.5” scale length take on the classic Mustang, doing away with the intonation and low string tension issues that hinder the shorter scale design. This guitar also features a “vintage” style 6-screw Gotoh 510T tremolo with steel block and steel saddles for excellent piano-like attack and fantastic sustain. Acoustically, the guitar sounds “wide open.”

The Lollar El Rayos sit just right in this guitar, providing the articulation of a single coil with the roundness of a humbucker. Clean tones are clear through the midrange and chimey on top, with plenty of body beneath that stays tight and defined. The pickups handle gain in much the usual creamy fashion of other humbuckers, but with more nuance in the midrange. They have a rich but moderate output that doesn’t hit the front end of your pedals too hard, leaving them the headroom to work their magic with clarity.

And then you have coil splits! Being a low resistance pickup, the coil splits do have a notable volume drop when used alone. But used in conjunction with the opposite pickup left in full humbucking mode, the tones are fantastic. Splitting the bridge and leaving the neck humbucking gives you tones reminiscent of the middle position on a Telecaster, sugary sweet and with a nice pop at the same time. Splitting the neck while leaving the bridge humbucking has a nice compression and subtle out-of-phase honk.

We find the tone control to be especially friendly with the El Rayos. Dialing back just a little will roll off the top end for PAF-styled tones, while rolling it back further delivers unique “cocked wah” or filtered tones.

 

How Does It Play?

The string action sets up marvelously low… just 4/64” on the low E string at the 12th fret and even lower on the high E. There is no buzz, and the frets are beautifully dressed and polished. The early 60’s-inspired neck profile is a medium C with good shoulders, allowing it to play nice and fast white retaining a feel that favors classic over modern.
