Rivolta has launched its new, Dennis Fano-designed semi-hollow guitar, the Regata VII.

The Regata VII features a double-bound body with a top and back made of pressed mahogany, a mahogany frame, and a weight-relieved mahogany center block. In keeping with the theme, the Regata VII's neck is also made of mahogany, and features a 12" radius ebony fretboard boasting a 25" extended scale length, 24 medium jumbo frets, and aged pearloid block inlays. 

Tone-wise, the guitar is outfitted with a pair of PAF-inspired "Brevetto" humbuckers, controlled by single volume and tone knobs, and a three-way switch.

Elsewhere, the Regata VII boasts a Nashville tune-o-matic steel saddle and stoptail bridge, a two-tier peghead, and Kluson-style tuners.

The Rivolta Regata VII guitar is available now – in Rosso Red, Acer Glow, Camino Burst, and Toro Black finishes – for $1,499.
