Dennis Fano, the lauded guitar designer/builder known for his Novo Guitars and Fano Guitars brands, has always wanted to make his guitars accessible to as many players as possible. In 2015 Dennis launched his import line of guitars, Rivolta, which exists under his lauded Novo Guitars. Every Rivolta gets inspected, setup, and shipped from the Novo factory/headquarters in Nashville, TN. 

This killer looking, playing, and sounding Mondata II is a stripped down version of the Mondata model (also on our site). Using somewhat of a 'back to basics' approach, the Mondata II is an evolution of Dennis' early JM offset-style guitars (the renowned Fano JM6 to be exact) and folds in some decidedly Firebird-esq appointments. Combined with a 25" scale, 24 frets, humbuckers, and a set maple neck, the Mondata II pays tribute to these guitar styles while also carving its own path.

Like all Rivolta guitars, the Mondata II feels fantastic in hand. They've managed to produce an incredibly well-made, killer looking, resonant and soulful guitar at a very reasonable price point. We're super impressed by these guitars - check them out! Priced with padded soft case.
