NAMM 2018: Fano Guitars announce new Standard Series JM4-FB Bass
For NAMM 2018, Fano Guitars has announced the release of new Standard Series JM4-FB Basses, following on from their tradition of developing traditional designs with renewed creativity and innovation.
Using the ever-popular JM6 as a springboard, we designed the JM4 Bass to look and feel as though it’s been part of the Fano line from its inception. The JM4’s classic styling incorporates a 34” scale length, 10” radius fretboard and an early-60’s C Shape neck that feels comfortable and familiar in your hands.
We have also raised the bar in playability and tone with the addition of our proprietary “FanoBird” bass pickups and “HiMax” bridge that offers both top-load and string-through body options.
We will continue to offer the option of Medium Distress and NOS finishes in 8 different colors. The JM4 will also be available with the choice of a Rosewood or Maple fretboard! Like all Fano guitars – Alt de Facto and Standard instruments – each JM4 is hand-built, one at a time from start to finish by one builder in Scottsdale, AZ.
The new Fano Standard Series JM4-TB Bass will be launched in January 2018 at The Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA and shipping to Authorized Fano Dealers worldwide in February/March 2018.
