Information

Brand New with Warranty. We are an authorized Fano dealer!

Like what you see? Photos (and video) are of the exact instrument you will receive.

The Alt de Facto series is Fano’s top-of-the-line custom series. These are handbuilt in the USA by one luthier from start to finish so that every instrument tells a unique and cohesive story. Nitrocellulose lacquer body and neck of course. If this isn’t exactly the guitar you are looking for, let us know what you want and we’ll get you the best price on your custom build.

What Do We Think?

The Lollar Firebird pickups are some of our favorite tricks in the toolbox. They have the low end power and punch of a full humbucker, the midrange transparency of a single-coil, and a top end that is smooth yet perfectly enunciated. They’ll bark if you dig in and yes, they run noiseless like a humbucker. This particular RB6 is loaded with a trio of them, with the middle pickup engaged via a push/pull pot on the tone knob.

Combining the middle pickup with either of the outer pickups brings out Strat-like qualities in spades. You’ll find a real nice quack when pairing the middle and bridge pickups and get into “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” territory with the middle and neck combined. Engaging all pickups at once delivers a massive soundscape. In short, there’s no shortage of fantastic tones in this guitar.

How Does It Play?

This beauty sets up with the string action measuring a hair over 4/64” at the 12th fret on the low E and under 4/64” on the high E. We find that to be the true sweet spot for a 24.75” scale guitar. The round back 50’s-inspired C profile is fills out the hand nicely, with a good taper that starts moderate in the cowboy chord area and really encourages you to dig in on the upper frets. The German Carve top also improves the comfort of the picking arm coming over the body. This instrument is a superb player, from tone to fit to finish.
