Fano Oltre JM6 Medium Distress Faded Tea Burst with Gig Bag
The feel & playability of this guitar is incredible. That's where Fano excels - while their guitars look super cool, it's all about the expert craftsmanship and super comfortable feel of the hand-shaped necks. The 60's style C neck carve and 9.5 - 12" compound radius make this a breeze to play all the way up the neck. The back of the neck is worn in, with most of the finish removed, making it a breeze to play. The Kluson-style tuners top it off, and it's all anchored by a Tone Pros bridge & tailpiece for enhanced tone & sustain.
Speaker of tone, this one kills. At Fano's suggestion, we went with the Lollar Firebird pickups. Not to be confused with a mini-humbucker with no poles, this humbucker has a unique design and a sound closer to a fat single coil than a full-size humbucker. Compared with a mini-humbucker, it features a brighter overall sound and a bass response that remains tight and defined noticeably longer. It also gives you less snarl and more spank. Made with Alnico 5 blade (pole piece) magnets.
This guitar has the feel and vibe of an old vintage instrument but with some modern tweaks, upgrades and reliability. The Alder body is light and resonant. The relic work, in our opinion, is perfect - there are not many that can do it as well as Fano. The 3-ply Parchement pickguard and Aged Nickel knobs are a nice touch on this one.
Light and quick, this curvy beauty is made to respond to the touch. Get as rough or smooth as you like, the contoured Alder body and satin-smooth Maple neck are built for comfort as well as speed. Plain and simple, this is a great example of the amazing work being done at Fano with the Oltre series. Sound, feel and looks all get top marks. And, it comes with a premium Fano gig bag.
