Fano Retrosphear

Introducing the new Fano Retrosphear. Dennis Fano drew on numerous retro-future archetypes from film, architecture and pop culture as well as vintage guitars born of forward thinking designs and choice of materials. He was inspired by the look and tone of Dan Armstrong plexiglass guitars…

Another inspiration was the guitars made by Nathan Daniel at Danelectro. However, the Retrosphear is something completely different – futuristic but with a pinch of retro – and a guitar you can rely on as a serious tool.

Fano Retrosphear

in designing and building the Sphears line I was inspired by the question: “what will the future look and feel like?” – only from the point of view of living in the 1950’s (Dennis Fano)
