Do any of you have experience of Rivolta guitars, played one? Held one even, maybe even own one?


I pretty much like the look of most models to be fair and in the high compression YouTube videos they all sound cool too, but....... they don’t half look like plastic and it’s a fiat chunk of change to drop on a guitar sight unseen. 

Then I guess there’s the resale......

anyone?

    My mate just bought a Mondata Jr from Coda. 

    The sea foam green one with the tort pick guard. 

    I cant play it as he’s right handed and I’m left handed. But I’ve had a hold, and a good look over it. 

    Its very, very nice. Really well made. No blemishes at all. Very light. Sounds lovely. I was really impressed. 

    I kind of know what you mean about the plastic look, but I really liked it in the flesh. Quite a 50s vibe to it. 

    I’m quite envious as it was me who put him on to them but I can’t get one. I love the Mondata, but they only make the Combinata left handed. I’m not as keen on that shape though. 

    It’s the best 1k guitar I’ve seen. 

    I can't help about the shape I'm in, I can't sing I ain't pretty and my legs are thin

    But don't ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to

    I had a look at them in coda. In the flesh they look great. 
    Sadly I didn't pick one up as I was way too distracted by another guitar :-D
    The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. In standard usage, tremolo is a rapid fluctuation of the volume of a note, while vibrato is a fluctuation in pitch. The origin of this nonstandard usage of the term by electric guitarists is attributed to Leo Fender, who also used the term “vibrato” to refer to what is really a tremolo effect.

    Like the body shapes etc ... but is it just me, or does Rivolta sound a bit too much 'revolting'?
    Dodgy name choice :-)

    name either immediately makes me want to be calling them Revolting or I get John Travolta fixed in my head...

  • Iso Revolta was a nice car though.  Still not a good name, but then neither is Koch, Fuchs, Friedman Arse etc, and they seem to be doing OK.

    Yeah, but since this thread I keep thinking "John Rivolta, star of Grease"

    How about 'John Revolting, star of Gunge' ... obviously a punk/Grease parody :-)
