Chicago, IL (October 3, 2016) -- Acclaimed guitar designer and builder Dennis Fano of Novo Guitars and the highly innovative Eastwood Guitars are excited to announce the launch of Rivolta Guitars.

Fano 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 will feature the best elements of Fano’s well-known designs and utilize Eastwood’s established production facilities and worldwide distribution network.

The initial Rivolta model – The Combinata – features a chambered mahogany body with a German carve top, 25” scale maple set-neck sports the comfortably chunky “Rivolta C+” neck profile with 24 medium jumbo frets and a bound rosewood fingerboard. Available in Adriatic Blue Metallic, Pomodoro Red Metallic, Toro Black Metallic and Autunno Burst. The standard model has a compensated wraptail bridge, while the DeluxeTrem model sports a Duesenberg Les Trem II with roller saddle bridge.

It will be available for pre-order through a few select dealers worldwide and the Eastwood Custom Shop website, which includes guitars from renowned builders like John Backlund and Jeff Senn.

“I’m excited to partner with Eastwood to launch the Rivolta brand. These guitars will offer fans of Novo and my previous designs a chance to get the guitar they’ve always wanted.” – Dennis Fano

“All of us at Eastwood and Airline guitars have been fans of Dennis’ creations for many years. With his keen eye for design and attention to detail that professional players have come to expect, we’re confident this will be a home run.” – Mike Robinson

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
