This is it! The highly coveted and nearly impossible to find Enrico Macias model Favino, built in 1961.
The Enrico Macias model was named for the famous Algerian/French singer who gained stardom via a unique style that mixes Algerian al Andalous, Flamenco, and 70's era pop.
This model features maple back and sides, and a shorter 670mm Selmer scale length (most Favinos have a 675mm scale). It also has a very comfortable modern neck. This is the earliest Macias model I've seen.
A number of famous Gypsy guitarists have played maple Favinos over the years. Bireli Largene played one in his teens and used it recently on the CD It's Alright with Me . Sounds amazing! Moreno and Mondine Garcia have also used maple bodied Macias style Favinos throughout their careers.
As mentioned earlier, the Macias features maple back and sides. The guitar has a three piece maple neck and snazzy ivoroid binding as well as the very rare black finish.
