Novo reveals its 2021 lineup, featuring a sleek new shape and a quicker way to get your hands on a guitar
Novo has unveiled its new lineup for 2021, which includes two new base models – one of which is an entirely new shape for the brand. There’s also a new way to order directly from Novo.
The Voltur is a blend of double-cutaway stylings and (unsurprisingly for Novo) offset stylings, as well as a few T-type features in there as well for good measure. The guitar features a Fralin humbucker in the bridge position and a Lollar staple P90 in the neck. Tonewoods include a tempered pine body, tempered maple neck and a 9.5-inch radius 22-fret rosewood fretboard. Completing a 24.75-inch scale length is a Tele-style hardtail bridge with Gotoh saddles, while at the other end of things is a set of staggered Kluson Deluxe tuners.
This is a dual-humbucker version of Novo’s existing Solus, keeping its base specs of a tempered pine body, tempered maple neck, rosewood fingerboard and sweeping design while adding a pair of Fralin modern PAF humbuckers. Unlike the Solus F1’s Fralin Tele bridge or the M1’s wraparound, the H2 stays true to its dual-humbucker roots with a TonePros Tune-o-Matic bridge & stoptail

New ways to order
A new shorter-turnaround way to order a custom-spec’d Novo has been revealed. Novo’s Select program lets you choose between five of the brand’s models: the new Voltur and Solus H2, and its Serus J, Solus F1 and Solus M1. Then, pick from eight of the brand’s most popular finishes and three different pickguard options, and receive your guitar in 2-3 months, spending on stok.
But, if you must have a Novo that’s completely your own – Novo’s Custom order option lets you mix and match your specs completely, with everything from pickups, binding, pickguards, finishes and relic level available to choose.
These are ultra-limited runs of guitars, designed by Denis Fano (who also steps in to the build process) that will pop up on Novo’s website. Find out more about the first run below:
