Dell'Arte Hommage questions

GregOGregO Tarpon Springs, FLNew Eimers Nympheas

I recall reading here that many liked this guitar in it's hey day. This seems to be one of the luthier models. Does anyone have experience with the price? I have a Latcho Drom (Dell'Arte label Altamira) that I started with a couple years ago. I'm tall with long arms so considering a Favino size. Thanks.

    That's way over priced, in my opinion. If you're looking for a Favino, Stringphonic makes a great one, and it's less money. Just give it a few months of playing and the tone blossoms tremendously. There's a couple on this website in the Asian Guitars section. I spoke with one of the folks from Dell'Arte and he recommended Stringphonic over Dell'Arte luthier models.

    That's what I felt. Thanks for the confirmation. In this situation, if I like the guitar I'd make a fair offer and leave it for the seller to refuse. ...also agree on the Stringphonic.

    That guitar is in France. Dell'Arte are more valued in Europe than here in States. Suppose conversely, a Favino will be nowhere as much in Paris as it is over here. I never played Hommage but for a long time they were considered the best thing next to the original is you wanted that size and sound.

    FYI, a forum member just put out his JWC made Favino copy for sale. Check this same forum category, it's fairly recent.
