Fano RB6 Bigsby Black Over Gold

Fano RB6 Bigsby Black Over Gold


We wanted to design a Fano RB6 with a tip of the hat to Neil Young's "Old Black"  1953 Les Paul. Just like Youngs'  the guitar is painted black over an original gold finish. We then asked for aged nickel parts including a worn metal pickguard and Bigsby Vibrato. The pickups are a nickel covered Fralin P90 in the neck and a Lollar Humbucker in the Bridge.

Rest assured, this Fano Custom RB6 sounds as good as it looks and plays like all Fanos… Great. This instrument sounds like a traditional 2 pickup, Nashville T-style guitar, but on steroids. There is lots of bite in the bridge, and smooth milky tone in the neck, and all of this tone comes with more gain than traditionally expected, but without a sacrifice in clarity.

Whether you want to rock out, or do some spanky twang, this guitar has you covered and will become one of your favorites.
