Eastwood Guitars is extremely proud and excited to introduce three new Rivolta models, designed by esteemed luthier Dennis Fano (of Fano Guitars and Novo Guitars fame): the Mondata, Mondata II and Combinata I.
The new Rivolta models continue to bring Dennis' fabulous designs accessible to a wider audience. They represent a true evolution of Fano: after his previous work with Fano Guitars (from where he departed years ago) and his current, celebrated Novo Guitars range, Dennis Fano now collaborates with Eastwood Guitars to bring this new range, which could only be described as "Workingman's Boutique".
The Mondata, Mondata II and Combinata I models come on the heels of last year's superb Rivolta Combinata, praised by players all over the world for its striking profile, crisp tones and smooth playability.
As with the Combinata, each new Rivolta model is designed personally by Dennis Fano. Dennis carefully oversees the research and development (R&D) at our Nashville facility, ensuring that Rivolta Guitars live up to the exacting standards that Dennis' guitars are known for.

The result? The Mondata, Mondata Jr. and Combinata Jr. will totally blow your mind! From the bold retro-inspired look to the modern specs that today's players desire, these Fano-designed axes are ready to rip up the stage and rock your world.
Rivolta Mondata: Firebird-style and super-versatile
The Rivolta Mondata mixes elements of the JM6 and Firebird, but looks and sounds entirely new and fresh.
The dual-switch configuration enables multiple pickup combinations, making the Mondata one of the most versatile guitars ever designed by Dennis. Punchy and clear Firebird pickups - perfectly-voiced mini-humbuckers that sound like fat single coils - deliver a tone that's never too bright or muddy, suiting any style.
The Mondata's gorgeous double-bound body and bound neck with vintage pearloid block inlays will make you swoon with pleasure.
