See. Hear. Experience.


Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Fano Alt De Facto SP6 Relic! The best of both worlds, that's what this guitar is. It's as if Les and Leo got together one day to make a guitar that celebrates both of their styles. A lot of the time when guitar builders try to do this it fails miserably. This Alt De Facto, however, absolutely nailed it! This is an incredible playing guitar with a humungous fat tone and one of the best feels we've had the pleasure of experiencing. When I demoed this guitar I didn't hold back one bit and I can tell you that this axe can take any-thing you can throw at it. The neck position is super warm and meaty sounding. The bridge pickup cuts like an axe (pardon the pun). Put them together and you get a sweet and creamy hum cancelling setting. This is a Blues / Country / Rock dream guitar come true.

Item Details

Dennis Fano is a member of the Premier Builders Guild. They specialize in offering masterbuilt boutique guitars and amps. This guitar is the proof and the pudding!

This Fano Alt De Facto Relic has a load of killer features. This amazing Swamp Ash body features a Butterscotch Blonde lacquer finish that has been perfectly distressed. The maple bolt on neck features a late 50's round back neck profile that is very very comfortable. The neck also features a vintage amber tint finish, maple fretboard and black dot inlays. A Fralin P-90 single coil in the neck and a Fralin T bridge pickup are digging deep to dish out some serious vintage tone. Other features include VT 3 way electronics, Fano T bridge with 3 compensated brass saddles, Graphtech man made Tusq nut and a G&G custom hard shell case.

Overall Condition

This Fano Alt De Facto is in near MINT condition. The only signs of any use on this guitar whatsoever are a few light pick marks on the pick guard. The frets are excellent with no wear.

This truly is an amazing combination of classic guitar ideas that actually works! The feel, tone and vibe of this axe just kill it every time you pick it up! Wow!
