Dennis Fano has really hit the ball out of the park with this one. Designed around the same body shape and construction as the best selling Mondata VIII & XVIII models, the Mondata Baritone VII features a 28" scale for optimal string tension, German carve, chambered mahogany body, maple set neck with a comfortably chunky C+ profile and raised center block.
Under the hood we have both a 'Novanta' P90 in the neck, 'Brevetto' PAF style humbucker in the bridge position and mini-switches for phase / coil-split options, making the Mondata Baritone VII as versatile as it is beautiful.
Other features include signature full width fretboard inlays, Rivolta 3-aside headstock, 24 medium jumbo frets, and gold plexi appointments.
“...although the Mondata Baritone VII is supremely versatile, it’s surely far too good-looking to be condemned to life with a studio tan – happily if you decide to take it out into the wild you’ll notice that it balances well on a strap too. The complete package." - Guitar.com
Percussive highs, defined lows and a snarling mid-range. Rivolta's proprietary, Alnico V ‘Novanta’ P90’s are wound to Dennis Fano’s specifications.
Classic PAF inspired tones with a thick midrange and slightly hotter output that is quick to breakup. Our proprietary, Alnico V ‘Brevetto’ humbuckers are wound to Dennis Fano’s specifications.
The Mondata features a raised center block; a nod to classic '60s guitar design. This is paired with German carved wing sections, gentle forearm contour and chambered, mahogany construction, providing additional weight relief for an effortless playing experience.
RIVOLTA "C+" NECK
Designed with comfort in mind, the Rivolta C+ profile is reminiscent of early '60s F style guitars, but a little more substantial. The result is a neck that feels comfortably chunky, yet very easy to play.
