This guitar represents the final culmination of over 50 years of Favino guitars. Jean-Pierre has taken the lessons of his father to improve the playability, volume, and tone of the Favino guitar. The result is the Jazz S model which faetures a smaller body than the original Favino. It is actually nearly identical to a Selmer: 15 3/4" wide, 3 3/4" deep. Scale length is 666mm which is slightly shorter then a Selmer (670mm). The back and sides are amazing Brazilian rosewood, the top is spruce and it has a maple neck. Other innovations include the solid wood tailpiece (ala Benedetto) and a fingerboard extension that goes all the way to up the 24th fret. This guitar also has traditional Favino block MOP position markers. The bridge is original and has a compensated B string for better intonation. There is a piezo pickup mounted under the top, with a jack on the lower treble bout.
The Favino model S has become very popular in recent years and is now played by the accomplished NYC rhythm player Ted Gottsegen, Shanghai based virtuoso Doug Martin, and Langley, Washington's Troy Chapman.
