1968 Jacques Favino Enrico Macias

1968 Jacques Favino Enrico Macias

This is it! The highly coveted and nearly impossible to find Enrico Macias model Favino!! Serial #96, built in 1968.
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 665mm 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. Unlike the later models (which have block MOP fingerboard inlays), this one has standard MOP dot markers. Looks similar to the Maple Favino Bireli Lagrene played in his youth!


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.
