In addition to Fano’s standard line of guitars, there’s also the Alt-De-Factos. These are the inspired, high-end solid-bodies that first garnered Fano international acclaim. In addition to souped up, made-to-order versions of the RB6, TC6, SP6, and JM6, featuring boutique parts and pickups, the Al-De-Facto series also includes three other models. The PX6 and PX4 are post-modern, non-reverse “firebird”-style guitars that look like they’re flying even when they’re standing still. The GF6 is a center-block F-hole guitar that most resembles a Fender “Starcaster” but features some of the finest carves, grain, and curves one can find on a semi-hollow. The ML6 is a “Jr”, double-cut style guitar that combines sturdy, minimalist ergonomics with staggering power and chunk. A woody, rich thin-line version of the RB6 is also available as an Al-De-Facto. If you’re ready to invest in the best, these one-of-a-kind, personalized instruments are the way to go.
We’re beyond honored to carry the Fano line at midwood. We love everything about them, from their colorful, pitched headstocks to their masterful setups that make them feel like they’ve been dialed in just for you after decades of play. Their unique vision of solid-body guitar craft is a welcome revelation to six-stringers who want something that feels and looks familiar, but still stands out as fresh and new. Fano is where tradition meets 21st century style. Like vintage muscle-cars with modern engines, these guitars will take you anywhere, while catching every eye along the way. Stop by the shop to play one of the Fano standards or start drafting the Alt-De-Facto of your dreams.
