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. Available in Medium Distress and NOS finishes in 8 different colors available with the choice of a Rosewood or Maplefretboard! 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.
