    A vintage looking instrument with a distressed finish and custom Fralin P-90 pickups, made in the USA.

    Vintage taken forward. That’s the Alt de Facto guitar line from master builder Dennis Fano. The Fano Alt-De Facto SP6 Electric Guitar is available in different colors and tone woods. Candy Apple Red comes with an alder body and a maple neck. Round Up Orange and Butterschotch Blonde have a swamp ash body and a maple neck.

    Imagine an alternate reality where the great American luthiers of the 1950’s work together under one roof, as a collective. That’s the vision that inspires Dennis and his Alt de Facto boutique guitars. It’s a world where aged nickel hardware, time-tested woods, a distressed lacquer finish and classic aesthetics are fused with modern features including a compound radius fingerboard, TonePros hardware, ToneStyler tone controls and custom wound Fralin pickups. The result? Proprietary distressed guitars with unsurpassed playability and tone.

    Alternate reality realized – and embraced by leading artists including Chris Carrabba, Popa Chubby, Jared Scharff, James Valentine and Pete Yorn.

    Dennis Fano is a member of the Premier Builders Guild, which makes it easier than ever before to experience boutique, masterbuilt guitars and amps. PBG is a dream team of boutique guitar and amp master builders, each with a unique point of view and brand.

    Built in the USA.

    Comments about Fano Guitars Alt-De Facto SP6 Electric Guitar:

    See paragraph above...
    This guitar is unreal. Literally. Visually it's a bit odd having a beatup guitar in a Black Tweed case with center pocket ! It has everything I love in a guitar: larger, bare Neck= Blonde Tele '52 style controls and tuners except to my surprise, the Tone control was a "TONE-STYLER" with multiple detents giving you approx 10 sounds including straight to Output for firebreather mode. Neck is Fralin "Blues Special" P90 - beatiful sound but non-adjustable Poll Pieces (this is not my 1st Fralin) leave my high :E: string sounding a bit quieter than the other strintw- This has a compond radiaa Neck. It's pretty much the under-cover Geetar with it'a unassimg looks, but the case need to be a bit beat up tooo !
