This fantastic Favino is a piece of Gypsy jazz history! It was owned by the legendary rhythm guitarist Nous'che Rosenberg and used on the ground breaking Rosenberg Trio recording Live at North Sea Jazz Festival.
Here's a chance to own a guitar that was used on the most influential Gypsy jazz recording of the last 20 years!
In addition to being a celebrity guitar, this Favino is also a superb example of Jacques Favino's legendary guitars from the 70s. This is the only Jacques Favino I've ever seen with Brazilian back and sides! The top is spruce and the neck is maple. There is a bigtone pickup installed.
The condition is very good with no cracks or other damage. Very clean with just a few small dings and minor checking. It has a DR tailpiece and a pristine set of original SB tuners. It has been professionally setup by the well respected NY luthier Rodrigo Shopis.
This instrument is strung with 11 gauge Argentine strings. Rodrigo's impeccable setup work has this guitar playing with very buttery 2.5mm action, the lowest I've ever seen on a Favino! It plays like a new guitar with no buzzing or other issues...an amazing feat for a guitar of this age.
This Favino has a really unique sound. It's not overly nasal sounding like many of the old Favinos are. Instead, it has a very thick mid range that produces one of the fattest, warmest tones I've heard in a Gypsy guitar. Additionally, it has some very nice, tight lows that are clear and defined. The high end is very rounded and dark which just adds to the "honey" like tone of this guitar. Sounds amazing, no wonder Nous'che chose this one!
