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 2.5mm. It is strung with 11 gauge Argentine strings...very, very easy to get around on.
Condition is mint...the guitar was completely babied and is indiscernible from a brand new one.
