Master builder Dennis Fano has parted company from the company that bears his name (Fano Guitars) and founded a brand new company Novo Guitars (from the latin “de novo” meaning “from the beginning” or “beginning again”). The Novo Serus T is a new offset solidbody electric guitar and is already winning awards for its fusion of vintage inspiration and modern, player-friendly style…

The Novo Serus T has an obvious clue in its name to the Telecaster-inspired electronics. The body is made from resonant tempered Pine, the tempered Maple neck has a broken-in, well-worn nitro finish, comes with a Gotoh T Bridge with “In-Tune” compensated brass saddles and there’s a hand-cut unbleached bone nut and rolled fingerboard edges.

The features & hardware can be customised to fit your tastes including choice of body wood, type of bindings, neck shape, fingerboard inlays, pickups can be Amalfitano, Fralin, Lollar, Novak, ThroBak and TV Jones and you can choose from over 50 available colors or provide a sample for custom color matching. More options are detailed in the specs below.
