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 Does We Think?
It’s alive!! This Copper monster features a deliciously resonant alder body, maple neck and a particularly dark piece of rosewood for the fretboard. You can feel the resonance of the guitar with a quick acoustic strum before plugging in. Top it off with a phenolic black pickguard, cool black Orange Amp knobs, and distressed nickel hardware.
The Lollar Firebird pickups are some of our favorite tricks in the toolbox. They have the low frequency power and punch of a full humbucker, the midrange transparency of a single-coil, and a top end that is smooth yet perfectly enunciated. All with a touch of gentle compression. Whether you’re going for straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll, a soulful swing or a country twang, you’ve got the tones at your fingertips.
The neck position is wonderfully articulate, with a big and warm bottom that stays tight and a nice open “bite” in the midrange. The middle position is crisp and spanky through a clean amp and sounds absolutely gorgeous with lush delays and massive reverbs. The bridge position can get you into Tele-on-steroids territory with the tone knob all the way up, or you can capture classic humbucker tones by rolling down the tone knob on the fly.
How Does It Play?
The PX6 neck profile is a nice 50’s round C that starts with a moderate depth and fills out the hand nicely as you arrive at the upper frets. The fretwork is impeccable. The string action is nice and low without any fretbuzz. It measures just 4/64” on the low E string at the 12th fret and even lower on the high E.
