What a gorgeous guitar. I've been ogling the Rivolta's for a few months now. They look like excellent guitars, sound like 'm too. From the demo's that is.

Aside from the mild PITA of having to adjust the vibrato arm's tension and angle, this guitar has been nothing but a treat. It's P-90s are especially impressive. Great growl.

Beautiful guitar! What did you do to tame that Les Trem spring? I got the low tension spring from Reverend and it's great, but now I'm thinking I wasted $10.
I misunderstood your post- the spring is stupid stiff and I'm going to buy the Reverend low tension spring now!

Thank you!

It's an amazing combo. It's so good, I haven't bothered to hook my pedalboard up to it yet.
