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?
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. The MG6 Oltre also features a “vintage” style 6-screw Gotoh 510T tremolo with steel saddles for the sweet sonic contribution of a Strat bridge.
The TV Jones PowerTron pickups have plenty of body in the low end, with a feel reminiscent of their PAF cousins. But each note has a bit more sculpt and sparkle. That is not to say the pickups are bright! This sparkle is less about the EQ contour of the pickups as a whole and more about the attack and color of each note. There is beautiful clarity without any hi-fi sterility.
This neck position excels at cleans and mild to moderately-overdriven tones. The bridge position excels at crisp rhythm tones. With their sculpted midrange, all positions maintain clarity when plugging into a spaceship of time- and space-based effects. Or if you prefer to go old school, the bridge position really sings plugged straight into a Marshall-style amp with the gain turned up.
How Does It Play?
The early 60’s C neck profile leans on the slim side for comfort, with just enough shoulder and girth to comfortably support the hand. The fretwork is impeccable with highly polished frets and smooth fret ends. The neck adjusts just perfectly and the string action hovers right around 4/64” at the 12th fret across all strings. Continuing with the comfort, the guitar is beautifully sculpted on the back to hug the body and has a generous arm contour to keep your picking hand relaxed.
