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?
A beautifully versatile guitar! Fano’s P-90 pickups sit very nicely in this Rickenbacker-inspired instrument for a sound that is all its own, with a thick lower midrange and a crisp top end that will satisfy the audiophile in any guitar player. We have found this pickup complement in the RB6 to be right at home everywhere from the studio on a rock session, the stage on a country western gig and the church auditorium on a praise and worship set. It is incredibly responsive to play, with the TonePros wraparound bridge set back towards the lower bout in such a way that the instrument feels deceptively shorter even than the 24.75” scale would suggest. The German Carve on the body gives the strumming arm a nice break and even adds a little weight reduction. This is definitely a guitar that will feel light on the shoulder all gig long.
How Does It Play?
The string action on this guitar sets up at a super low 4/64” all the way across at the 12th fret. There is no fretbuzz. The frets are beautifully dressed and polished. 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. Everything on this guitar is ready to rock! Or twang. Or just about anything else you need it to do!
