1957 one of a kind #no serial

This extraordinary one of a kind guitar, was made by Jacques Favino in 1957 for the then popular teenage singer Marie-José Neuville..carved solid spruce top..carved solid flamed maple back, three piece maple neck, round hole, with elevated fingerboard. conceived as a nylon string guitar, it projects as well as any classical guitar. on the inside, there is a long handwritten dedication by Jacques Favino.. great action and sound.. this one is a piece of French History. I wish I also had the guitar in this photo..!! her recording contract stipulated that she was forbidden to cut off her braids..She had to continue projecting the image of a teenager..way past that time..

1986 Lefty Patrick Saussois #965

In April of 1986, Patrick Saussois took delivery of this guitar that he had 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" metal tailpiece.. the original is now back on. 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..
