From Fano:

I've always had an interest in building instruments that combined features from a variety of guitars - the guitars that might have existed in an alternate reality where the great American guitar makers and innovators of the 1950s would've existed under one roof, as a collective. That is the idea behind the Alt de Facto series.

alt. (abbreviation for alternate) - serving or used in place of another; substitute de fac┬Ěto - in fact; in reality

The Alt de Facto models pay homage to some of the classic American guitar makers of the mid 20th century. From the aged nickel hardware and well-worn feel of the distressed lacquer finish to details such as the traditional German carved top of the RB6, the vibe is purely vintage.

Although the Alt de Facto's are built on a solid foundation of classic aesthetics and time-tested materials like alder, swamp ash and mahogany, they are propelled into the 21st century by features that include a compound radius fingerboard, TonePros and Gotoh hardware and custom wound Fralin pickups that deliver a wide range of tones suitable for any style of music.

Each Fano guitar is individually handcrafted one at a time, so no two are alike.
