"...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
Dennis Fano, the lauded guitar designer/builder known for his Novo Guitars and Fano Guitars brands, has always wanted to make his guitars accessible to as many players as possible.
In 2015 Dennis launched his import line of guitars, Rivolta, which exists under his highly acclaimed Novo Guitars brand. Every Rivolta gets inspected, setup, and shipped from the Novo factory/headquarters in Nashville, TN.
Dennis has managed to produce an incredibly well-made, killer looking, resonant and soulful guitar at a very reasonable price point. We're very impressed by these guitars and recommend them to anyone looking for boutique design and quality at a non-boutique price point.
Players: Nick Valensi (The Strokes), Rhett Shull, Jared Scharff (SNL band), Kenny Greenberg.
