Favino Trois Rosaces Jumbo Acoustic Guitar, 1977, EC

A rare, not often seen early example of a Jacques/Jean Pierre Favino Trois Rosaces built in 1977 in excellent condition. The guitar is obviously named after it's three soundholes with three rosettes (Trois Rosaces), an eyecatching feature which gives this guitar a unique visual and tonal character. This guitar model can still be ordered from the Favino workshop today, but it's not often you come across an early example like this one.

Jacques Favino was born early July 1920 in Piemont, North-Italy. He and his family moved to Paris in 1923. Jacques served his apprenticeship at Busato guitars in Paris. Jacques started the Favino workshop in 1946, he made his first guitar in the early 50's.In the 1970's Favinos were imported into the USA by a tiny company named Favino North America. Jacques retired in 1978 and Jean-Pierre (1952) the son of Jacques officially took over in about 1980 but he made his first guitar in the Spring of 1979 (might have been earlier?).

 

This guitar is a special one as there are only a few Favinos with both the names Jacques and Jean-Pierre on them. Story's tell that Jacques made the body and Jean-Pierre the rest. The guitar features Brazilian rosewood back and sides, a spruce top, rosewood bindings and maple/rosewood purflings, three rosewood/maple soundhole rings, maple neck with black finish, ebony fretboard with block inlay, rosewood headstock overlay, rosewood bridge and Schaller tuners.

The guitar has an, a-typical for Favino, unique folky sound, with smooth round basses a very balanced mid end and a rich high end. Condition is excellent, some finish checking on the neck and body and expected playwear for its age. Comes with a HSC.
