Dell Arte's Hommage model has long been considered one of the best Favino copies. This Jimmy Rosenberg signature model is sort of a deluxe Hommage....like the Hommage it has Favino proportions (16 1/2" body and 675mm scale). But the Jimmy Rosenberg model has solid rosewood back and sides whereas the Hommage uses laminate. This guitar also has a bigtone pickup and fancier MOP inlays.
The tone is pure Favino! Strong nasal upper mids, deep low end, and loads of BARK! Setup is perfect with action at a very slinky 2.6mm. It is strung with 11 gauge Argentine strings...very, very easy to get around on.
Condition is excellent..this guitar was completely babied and is nearly indiscernible from a brand new one. There is some very, very light pickwear and a few small dings on the binding.
