    Michael,

    What are the differences between the various Favino style models? Just curious.

    -Paul
    Reject the null hypothesis.

    Michael, are all these guitars built by a different company for Dell Arte?? Does Dell Arte still make anything else in house??
    Thanks

    These guitars are made in China by Music Link. The domestic Dell Arte shop is gearing down production. It will be more of a boutique shop, only producing the highest quality instruments. Prices are going up on the domestically made ones. That's good news for those of you who own Dell Artes....they should appreciate nicely since they'll now be a lot rarer and collectible.

    I've only played a few of the prototypes briefly. My first impression was very good...they seem to be doing a good job of replicating the domestic ones. We'll have to wait and see what the actual production ones are like. But with the Dell Arte guys advising them, I'm sure they'll be pretty good. Especially for the price. Andreas actually did the Djangofest NW shows with the Angelo Debarre model. He seemed to like it...

    Until we get some in, I can't comment too much on the differences of these models. Interestingly, three of them are Favino style. Probably for two reasons. 1) No one else is currently making an entry level Favino. 2) Dell Arte's best selling guitar is the Homage (and it's spin offs like the Nolan and Rosenberg models). Dell Arte is just good at making Favino style guitars.

    Interestingly, the Debarre model is a Favino style. I thought that was a little strange because he almost always plays Selmer style guitars. But he did use an Homage on the Djangofest DVD and recorded Entre Amis with it. But other then that, he's a Selmer guy. The main feature of the Debarre model seems to be the Maple back and sides.

    I'm guessing the signature guitars have better woods and hardware. I'll try to find out more.

    Word from Alain is that the Debarre model is a replica in the Jacques Favino style, whereas the Nolan model is Jacques Favino size, but with Jean-Pierre style bracing (five versus four braces).

    What was Angelo playing in the DFNW DVD? I don't think it had a visible logo, but it did have a Favino-style 3-piece maple neck.

    As Jack quoted, it was an Homage.

    What's the difference between a "Favino style" guitar and a "Selmer style" one?
