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 pulls out all the stops. It sports a custom Orange Sparkle finish, clean white pickguard and pickup covers, and a Gotoh steel block 510T tremolo. The alder body is warm and resonant, and loaded with one of our favorite P-90 pickup combinations.
The Lollar Low Wind P-90 in the neck is fat but articulate. It cleans up the lower midrange that can be a bit overwhelming with a standard P-90 in the neck position of a 25.5” scale guitar. It can even get spanky through a clean Fender-style amp. And yet it has a bigger bloom, lusher bottom end and smoother highs than a single coil.
The standard wind Lollar P90 in the bridge is very dynamic, exuding a bouncy chirp over a rich midrange. It can dish out your typical P-90 snarl under heavy attack and yet dial back to a warm, smooth delivery under a lighter hand or with the tone backed down. The middle position is chimey, full-bodied and perfectly compressed.
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. Speaking of fretwork, Fano does an impeccable job dressing and polishing their frets and this one is no exception. The string action hovers right a 4/64” at the 12th fret without any fret buzz.
