It seems like every time we get in a discussion about vintage guitars with someone the subject of old wood vs. new wood is brought up. Many players swear there is just something special about a well seasoned piece of wood when it comes to building a guitar.

Well, it doesn't get much older than this Fano RB6 made out of a 200 year old piece of spruce. This is a very special instrument personally built by Dennis Fano and it is the only one of it's kind. Apart from the 200 year old body with the German Carved Top it also features "shotgun shell" volume and tone knobs and a handmade leather pickguard with matching leather strap. This is a truly unique guitar!
