Rivolta Combinata VIII – Colomba White
The Combinata, Dennis Fano’s first design for the Rivolta line, was aptly named given its combination of two inspirations: the Rickenbacker Combo, and Dennis’ own RB6.
Taking cues from the Rivolta Mondata, this new model takes the Combinata concept even further; fusing the Mondata’s sought-after 3-pickup layout and switching system with iconic Combinata aesthetics.
The COMBINATA VIII 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 metallics, maple on burst). The 25″ scale maple set-neck sports the comfortably chunky “Rivolta C+” neck profile, with 24 medium jumbo frets.
