It's always fun to have a Novo come through the shop and we welcome these any chance we get - they're incredibly comfortable and fun to play. One of the coolest things about Dennis Fano's Novo guitars is that they all share one body shape, but within that shape's framework Dennis and his Nashville-based crew are able to produce a stunning amount of variety. Each guitar has a different combo of pickups, finish, relic level...The key elements that unite them all is feel, tone, playability, and build quality.
The combination of Fralin Pure PAFs, a tempered pine body, and tune-o-matic bridge yields familiar yet 'can't-quite-put-your-finger-on-it' tones. This guitar would be right at home in a variety of settings be it indie rock, blues, pop...you name it.
The neck feels perfectly aged, rounded, shaped, with immaculate fret work (a highlight on all Novo guitars in truth). The carve leans towards the early 60s in terms of girth and shape, though this carve is Novo's "Chunky C" which is a touch larger than other Novo's we've had.
Dennis has built a stellar reputation in the boutique world for a reason - these are killer guitars, period. Priced with a deluxe Mono gig bag.
