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 MOP ornaments on the moustache pieces and tailpiece.
Other specs are: European Spruce top, three piece highly flamed Maple neck. Ebony fingerboard. Three on a plate Gold Schaller tuners with white buttons.You can hear Jimmy Rosenberg using his signature Dell Arte on numerous recordings including: Rose Room, Djangos Tiger, and Trio. 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 10 gauge Argentine strings...very, very easy to get around on.
This instrument is in fabulous condition, with no discernible fretwear and just a flew light scrathces on the body. It's rare to find an example of this model in such stunning condition!
If you're a fan of big bodied Favino style guitars, this is the best bang for the buck under K. Only one, call now!
