In 2020, Fano expanded the Alt de Facto offering to include the JM4 bass.  For those that don't know, this model is a favorite amongst bass players worldwide, and one of the best-selling platforms for Fano.  As soon as we heard this, we knew we had to spec one out.  After all, the Alt de Facto line is the cream of the crop.  We wanted one a unique JM4 that no one had seen before, and when this arrived, we knew we had a surefire winner!

We wanted a Swamp Ash body to really show the Driftwood finish, and the luthiers at Fano knocked it out the part.  We honestly haven't seen a bass look like this, ever.  The first thing you'll notice is the amazing aesthetic, but rest assured that this bass sounds and feels as good as it looks.  The JM4  incorporates a 34” scale length, 12” radius fretboard and an early-60’s C Shape neck that feels comfortable and familiar in your hands.   Proprietary “FanoBird” bass pickups and a “HiMax” bridge that offers both top-load and string-through body options round it out.  See below for the full list of specs.
Like all Fano Alt de Facto instruments, each JM4 is hand-built, one at a time from start to finish by one builder in Scottsdale, AZ.  This one was spec'ed out together by the head of Truetone and the head of Fano, collaborating to create some that hadn't been done before.  This heavily distressed JM4 in the ultra cool Driftwood finish is a one of a kind instrument and the only one in existence.  Get it here now before it's gone!
