"...the Regata perfectly straddles the divide between modern practicality and vintage tone. It seems to be something that’s bread and butter for Dennis Fano, but few other contemporary electric guitar designers manage this." ~Guitar.com
Why We Love This
Designed with comfort and playability in mind, the REGATA VII features a mahogany frame and weight-relieved mahogany center-block sandwiched between a pressed maple top & back. The comfortable chunky C+ profile mahogany neck feels great in the hand and the 25” scale offers optimal string tension. The 24 medium jumbo frets offer an extended range rarely seen on the semi-hollowbody platform. The result of these design elements is an extremely lightweight, versatile instrument. A pair of our PAF inspired “Brevetto” humbuckers offer familiar, vintage inspired tones perfectly suited to genres ranging from jazz to blues, rock and beyond.
Other features include our new 2-tier peghead design, signature vintage perloid inlays and custom designed f-holes highlighting elements from the Rivolta logo.
