Following up on the success of the Rivolta Guitars COMBINATA comes the latest addition to the family: The MONDATA VIII. The tradition of offering fresh takes on classic Dennis Fano designs continues with this offset design, incorporating elements of the Fano JM6, raised center block and full German carve 

Like the Combinata, the MONDATA features a double-bound chambered mahogany body with bound neck and vintage pearloid block inlays.
You can expect a punchy and clear tone from the 
'Fumante' mini-humbucker pickups, think 'humbuckers that sound like FAT single coils' and you're there. If versatility is your thing, the two switch configuration gives you every possible pickup combination.
