This guitar is made for Tony Weiss, a French manouche guitarist who played with The Hot Club de France and of course Django in the mid 40’s. He took delivery of it the 25th of 1977. It’s the only 16 fret favino to this day. I got confirmation of all of this from Jean-Pierre himself. It has two little cracks near the neck above the soundhole that are repared. I also had a little piece of rosewood put under the tailpiece to keep it of the body since it layed on the body due to the extra distance to the bridge (16 fret model). Otherwise it’s in great condition (refin?) It also has been refretted by Jean-Pierre some years ago together with a neck reset. Now it plays like a dream and sounds fantastic
