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. 

The new Mondata Baritone VII takes Rivolta's best selling Mondata model to a new, deep, and very cool place. Featuring two Rivolta pickups - a Novanta P90 in the neck and a Brevetto in the bridge - a raised center block on its German-carved, chambered mahogany body, 28" scale, 24 frets, and set maple neck, the Mondata VII Baritone delivers effortless playability and huge tones. The clever switching setup - a 3-way switch combined with a phase and coil-split mini-switch - allows for a huge range of super inspiring tones.

Like all Rivolta guitars, the Mondata VII Baritone 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.
