Not everyone wants all the bells and whistles. Sometimes dead simplicity and pure tone is all that's necessary. So here comes another masterful design by Dennis Fano to take it's rightful place in the Rivolta lineup.
Introducing the Rivolta MONDATA II HB: a stripped down, straight-to-the-point iteration of the new Rivolta Guitars MONDATA. A stop-tail design, a couple of PAF style Humbucker pickups and a single toggle switch is more than you need to get the job done on stage, in the studio, or your living room.
Taking his original inspiration from early Jazz Master style guitars, Dennis Fano went on to develop his renowned JM6 series guitars in 2006. The MONDATA is the latest re-imagining of this design by Dennis Fano and fuses the JM styling with a raised center block, Rivolta 3-aside headstock and 'Fumante' mini-humbuckers. The MONDATA II HB s a stripped back version of the MONDATA, losing the German carve, chambered body, binding and block inlays, all the while retaining a similar retro aesthetic of it's big sibling.
The MONDATA II comes as standard with a stoptail and Nashville style Tunomatic bridge allowing for perfect intonation and tuning stability. The mini-humbucker pickups are swapped out for a pair of PAF style humbuckers for those looking for that classic late 50's humbucker tone.FEATURES & SPECS
