Dennis Fano is simply a master of combining ultra-cool visual aesthetics with an impeccably made instrument. The setup, fretwork, and resulting playability are phenomenal. It's a lightweight guitar, balances perfectly for seated or standing playing, and ultimately invites plugging in, cranking your amp, and pounding out some of your favorite riffs.
This Mirus H2 is loaded with a set of LollarTron pickups which sound fantastic pared with the tempered pine semi-hollow body and maple/rosewood neck. Great top-end bite, yet still warm and fat. It's a really cool blend of compression, punch, and articulation. Beautiful clean tones into Fender-style amps (and we'd imagine any other style of amp, that's just what we happened to be plugged into). Overdriven tones are chimey yet retain the punch and output of a vintage-style humbucker.
We can't say enough great things about how comfortable these guitars are to play. They're so lively and responsive, acoustically loud when played sans amp, with a perfectly rounded, broken-in feeling medium C neck carve. The way these guitars are constructed makes them feel like a short scale guitar in your hands even though they're a long scale build. It's nice to feel like the neck sits directly in front of you with little reaching when playing seated, and the upper fret access is as good as it gets for lead work.
Condition: Excellent, no real signs of prior ownership.
You really get the impression that the Novo team has a blast making these guitars - you can just feel it when you sit down with one. Before you know it, an hour has passed, your finger tips are sore, your ears are ringing...and you're grinning ear to ear. But that's the whole point, no?
