Here is something very special, a Jacques Favino from 1963!
This unique Favino was probably a custom order as the body specs are slightly smaller than a typical Favino modele #10 with a 16 1/4" body and a 3/8" body depth. Although, I have seen one other Favino from this year with similar specs, so they may have made these slightly smaller modele #10s from time to time. The back and sides are Indian rosewood , the top is spruce, and the neck is constructed of three pieces of maple.
The hardware includes the original tailpiece and SB tuners.
The condition of the guitar is excellent, especially considering most Favino's have suffered the proverbial "Gypsy life." It has no cracks or other major damage whatsoever. There is some pickwear on the top, a few small dings
and scratches, and some light fretwear.. At some point it went back to JP Favino who, in typical fashion, added his logo to the headstock and oversprayed the top.
Favino connoisseurs generally consider his best work to be from the later 60s through the mid-70s, as earlier and later models often have design differences that make them sound and play differently. Here's a chance to own one of these highly coveted models that not only sounds incredible, but is in fantastic condition as well!
