Fano-Tastic

What do you get when you cross a Tele, a Danelectro, and a Gretsch? A Telelecretsch? Nope, you get this spectacular Alt De Facto Fano TC6! Fano's Alt De Facto program allows guitar fanatics to customize their favorite Fano body shapes with their favorite pickups, finish, and appointments. Whoever built this Fano had excellent taste, because it looks great and sounds killer! Together, the Ocean Turquoise finish, the Danelectro-Telecaster hybrid body, and the tortoiseshell pickguard present an aesthetic that is at once familiar and wildly different from anything you normally see, and the two TV Jones PowerTron pickups sound freakishly good!

Powertrons sounds like a cross between a vintage PAF and a vintage Filteron, and their hot, warm tone is endlessly inspiring. This serial in particular has warm but ridiculously articulate lows to go with broad midrange and snappy, twangy trebles. It'll also jangle with the best of them in the bridge position, and the neck position is as clear as most bridge positions!

The neck is also quite comfortable thanks to an inspired pairing of radius and profile. The early '60s-style "C" neck profile is just right--not too fat, not too thin--and the 7.25"-9.5" compound radius makes chording as natural as breathing low on the neck before it widens out to a typical modern Fender radius. This combination creates an addictive feel that will surely cause hours of your day to disappear if you pick it up and start playing!

We know that this superlative Fano will carry you off into a magical world of tone where Gretsch sound, Fender feel, and Danelectro styling all coexist within the same guitar, and we are proud to showcase it for our exceptional customers!
