2004 Jean-Pierre Favino 14 Fret D Hole Guitar with TKL Hardshell Case ***SOLD!!!***
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 body is smaller then the original Favino. It is nearly identical to a Selmer: 15 3/4" wide, 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 5 piece Maple neck. Other innovations include the solid wood tailpiece (ala Benedetto).

Overall, I would definitely describe this guitar as the ultimate modern Gypsy jazz lead machine. If you like to play Minor Swing one moment, and then Donna Lee the next, this is the guitar for you. Any of the high speed, modern Gypsy-Bop licks of Bireli, Stochelo, etc. are easily executed on this guitar. It almost plays itself. The shorter 666mm scale keeps the string tension low, allowing for greater ease of play.

This guitar was personally built for Ted Gottsegen, the illustrious Gypsy jazz rhythm player (plays with Robin Nolan, Andreas Oberg, Wawau Adler, Stephane Wrembel, and others.) His initials "TG" are on the tailpiece and the label states that the guitar was built for him.

The guitar is in very good condition. The only issue is some substantial checking of the finish. This is quite common with JP guitars. He uses an exceptionally thin finish which allows the guitar to resonate efficiently. Most of his guitars look like this after a few years.

This is the CASH price...add 3% if you'd like to pay with a credit card. 4% for international credit card payment.
