1968 1A 14 Fret Round Hole

This guitar has an early Jacques Favino paper label, AND a lovely plastic namesake right on the top..!! three piece maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, laminated rosewood back and sides with a solid spruce top. The modèles 1A and 1B were succesfull because they cost less than the Grand Modèle, but sounded very good. This one is no exception and today, you can get an early Jacques Favino for less... One cannot fail to notice how much they resemble a model introduced by a certain Bortolo Busato many years before.. NHSC $3,500.00

1986 Lefty Patrick Saussois #965

In April of 1986, Patrick Saussois took delivery of this guitar that had been custom built. The label reads "construite pour Patrick Saussois..Affectueuement.. Jean Pierre Favino" with the serial number # 965, This shows further proof that Jean Pierre continued to use his father's serial numbering scheme as late as 1986. Selmer size, it has the classic Favino three piece maple neck with an ebony fingerboard. brazilian laminated back and sides and european spruce top. Jean Pierre crafted a wooden tailpiece of ebony and put the PS initials on it. at some point, Patrick may have been curious to check as to how different the guitar might sound with a "conventional" brass tailpiece.. the original is now back on, and the brass one is in the case..apart from a couple of hits and scrapes, the guitar is in excellent condition. the action, playability and sound are spot on.. Letfy Favino guitars are quite rare.. this one comes a celebrated "Gadjo" who is missed for his charming personality, quick with a smile, and with a tremendous contribution the the "rebirth" of the genre, with his playing and efforts through his own "Djaz" label.. no apologies for the shadows in the photos... I feel they create a certain seasonal mood... NHSC $7,500.00
