1976 Jacques Favino Modele #10

Here is something very special, a Jacques Favino from 1976!

The body specs are typical Favino: 16 1/2" body with a  4" body depth. The back and sides are Indian Rosewood.


If you like the classic Favino sound on the early Boulou Ferre recordings like Gypsy Dreams and Pour Django, Bireli's early recordings (Swing '81 and Routes to Django), or Han'sche Weiss/Lulu Reinhardt (Lulu Swing) then this is the guitar for you! This instrument produces that classic Favino tone that is honky, nasal, and full of character. There is a pronounced upper midrange hump that is nicely balanced by the gutsy bass that Favinos are famous for.


The sound of this guitar is pure Favino! It has the unmistakeable Favino tone which features warm, nasal mids; full bodied lows; and rounded highs. This guitar is quite dry and free of bothersome overtone ringing, making it very clear and easy to hear in group settings. It has character galore...play a chromatic run and you instantly get the gusty, hard fisted sound that the Alsatian/German Gypsies like Moreno and Hans'che Weiss are famous for. Favinos like this love to be played hard, and the more force you play this guitar with the better it sounds. Chordal work is snappy with lots of punch and attitude which is all underpinned with a rich, tight lowend. This guitar certainly does not lack personality, that is for certain!

The guitar has some battle scars. Most notably a hole in the top which was repaired. Also, there's small spot on the side which slightly caved in. There's also a little pit in the fretboard on the 1st fret which has no effect on playability or sound. It also has various small dings and places were the finish has worn off. At one point it had a bigtone but that was removed. Hardware includes a set of DR tuners and a DR tailpiece. All in all, this instrument is in pretty good shape for a guitar of it's age.

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 posses the tone and projection that made Favino famous!
