Built in Fano's US facilities, Oltre Series guitars are made to order – guitarists can choose from over 40 different finishes, as well as a range of distress levels, from new-old-stock (NOS) to heavy. The models can be further visually customized with a variety of pickguard colors and knob styles.  The single-cut shape of the TC6 echoes the traditional String-Through solid body, while breaking tradition by adding new features. The Medium Distress finish package gives it the feel of a guitar that's been broken in, stood the test of time, and is ready to be played even more. It's tastefully done, as seen in the photos. We chose to do this one in the classic finish of 2-Tone Sunburst, and love the way it came out!  

The early 60's style C shaped neck is extremely comfortable, and the compound radius (9.5 - 12") is perfect for both chording and lead playing.  The back of the neck is worn in, with most of the finish removed, making it a breeze to play.  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.

At Fano's suggestion, we went with a unique pickup combination:  a Lollar P90 in the bridge position, and a Lollar Firebird in the neck position.  Combined, you get a wide variety of tones that you really wouldn't find in other guitars.

The Lollar P90 is one of the most versatile single coil pickups made. It's designed to sound like the original vintage pickups, but with materials that will last the test of time. You get  warm, full tone with the clarity and articulation found with larger single coils from the late '50's, with a balanced output between positions and an expressive dynamic range.

The Lollar Firebird was a a suggestion of Fano's Graham Dowling.  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.

Full specs are below.  This guitar comes with a very nice, padded Fano gig bag that's sturdy enough to take out on the road.  Whether you're doing that or playing at home, this is an excellent choice!  Come to Truetone Music to give it a try, or order right here right now before it's gone.
