Rivolta Mondata XVIII Electric Guitar - Fuoco Burst


Rivolta guitars are the latest creation from acclaimed guitar builder and designer Dennis Fano, owner of Novo Guitars and the founder of Fano Guitars. Dennis has always wanted to make his guitars accessible to as many players as possible, and partnering with Mike Robinson of Eastwood Guitars was the perfect solution. The Rivolta models feature the best elements of Dennis Fano's well-known designs, and utilize Eastwood’s established production facilities and worldwide distribution network. The initial Rivolta model, the COMBINATA, was launched through the Eastwood Custom Shop in 2016.


Following up on the success of the Combinata comes the latest addition to the family: The Mondata XVIII. This fresh design harks upon a golden era of guitar building, when solid, reliable instruments came in unique and quirky packages. This Mondata model has a unique switching system reliant on three Mini Humbuckers (like that of a Gibson Firebird), and two toggle switches. The main toggle switch operates the bridge and neck “Fumante" Mini Humbuckers, while the secondary 3-way includes, isolates, or disengages the middle pickup. This offset design, incorporates unique design elements, including a Raised Center Block and full German carve top. You're looking at the Deluxe version which comes with a Bigsby B-50 Tremolo System.
