Here is something very special, a Jacques Favino from 1973!
The body specs are typical Favino: 16 1/2" body with a 4" body depth. The back and sides are Brazilian rosewood and the top is spruce. The guitar has a three piece maple neck that has a tinted finish which was common during this period.
The hardware includes the original tailpiece and SB tuners (one of the tuners was replaced by with a similar vintage SB tuner, albeit without the steel button.)
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 and number of small dings
and scratches. The frets are new and it plays easily with low, 2.8mm
action. The guitar appears to have had a strap button in the heel at one point which was later filled. It's so rare to find a Favino in such pristine condition, especially one from Favino's "Golden Period!"
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!
