The COMBINATA XVII is the evolution of a design with which followers of Dennis Fano should be very familiar. The larger and slightly offset body give the COMBINATA a shapely silhouette and more substantial feel. The chambered mahogany body features a German carve top ( mahogany on solid colors, maple on burst / natural ). The 25″ scale maple set-neck sports a comfortably chunky “Rivolta C+” profile, with 24 medium jumbo frets, bound / full width inlayed fingerboard and a Deusenberg Les Trem II.
Taking his original inspiration from the 1954 Combo model electric guitar, Dennis Fano created his celebrated RB6 prototype in 2006 which retained the Combo's small body size and featured a single P90 pickup, 6 in-line tuners and a German carve that extended from the upper horn to under the leading edge of the pickguard. Almost a decade later, the COMBINATA is the latest re-imagining of this design by Dennis Fano. Featuring an enlarged, offset body design, the COMBINATA feels more ergonomic than Dennis Fano's previous design and the addition of a chambered body and full German carve create a more substantial feel, while keeping the instrument weight to a minimum. The full width block perloid inlays hark back to guitars of the 60's and add yet more retro flavor to the design and the addition of a second P90 in the neck adds more tonal versatility.
