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!
Favino didn't make many D holes, but you find them from time to time. This is one of the rare surving examples. The condition is very good. There are no cracks. Just some checking and dings. Playability is excellent, with the action set very low at 2.8mm. Plays like butter with no buzzing.
The serial # is 849. It has a spruce top, gorgeous highly figured Brazilian back and sides (rare for an old Favino), and has a 3 piece maple neck. It has an original tailpiece. This Favino was built with JPs special 666mm scale. So it is a bit easier to play then the longer 675mm Favinos.
There is a piezo pickup mounted to the top and wired to a jack on the lower bout.
