Dell Arte's Hommage model has long been considered one of the best Favino copies available. Handmade in San Diego by John Kinnard, this model features a cedar top, a walnut neck, and an ebony fingerboard. It has been fitted with a set of three on a plate Schaller nickel tuners and a nickel DR tailpiece. A bigtone pickup is also included (a $400 value!) This custom variation of the classic Hommage model features a short, 650mm scale and a 12 fret neck.
The tone of this instrument is very warm and dark, with a rich, rounded bass response and thick, flowing mids. This guitar's big, thick sound is best suited to unaccompanied playing and/or rhythm work. If you find the more typical long scale Gypsy guitars sound too brash or are too hard to play, then this easy playing, well balanced instrument would be a great choice.
This instrument is in excellent condition, with just some light fret wear and a bit of finish checking on the top.
