Fano Guitars are known for its boutique, US-made guitars. The firm started with the Alt de Facto series and then in recent years added the Standard range. Now in 2020 we have a new budget-friendly line called the Omnis Series, a range which gives us budget boutique versions of their core models.
This company was formerly owned by Dennis Fano, who now runs Novo and Rivolta Guitars, and has since left the company that still bears his name. Fano Guitars carries on with their hand-made in the USA lines and still makes fine instruments.
This year they are launching a new series of ‘budget boutique’ models which have polyurethane finished alder bodies, satin-finished maple necks with pau ferro fingerboards. This new range which is called the Omnis Series includes all their core models, including the M6, SP6, GF6 and MG6.
They launch during Winter NAMM 2020 and so details are a little scant at the moment, but we do know that they will retail for under $1,000 each. Which, is great for players on a budget as they can get a Fano model for a lot less than normal.
Each guitar will use Fano’s own brand pickups to help keep the costs down. This is exactly the same models as used on their popular Standard Series models and those are great. I own a Fano Standard Series SP6 and it is a great guitar, so these new budget Omnis Series could be a winner as well.
Certainly ones to check out during Winter NAMM this week, you can find them at Hall D booth #3438
