really....

would this be viewed as a success story where a small time builder makes it big enough to be bought out?
Not sure of the details. I just know he's very vocal about it and if sick of getting emails about guitars that he doesn't make anymore .

Isn't he also making a model for Eastwood or at least designed it?

how so? he seems to be doing the same thing as before
With Premier Guitar Builders he was part of the team. With Novo, his is THE BOSS. May be doing similar, but HOW he is doing similar is different

Premier Builder Group purchased/owns the Fano brand now.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think Premiere builders guild is done? Mark Bartel sold Toneking to boutique amps distributor (they make Friedman, Morgan and others) and Two Rock went on their own again.

Good chance I suppose. I don't follow too carefully, I just know Dennis Fano doesn't own the brand anymore and it was a PBG property for a while.

Edit: a Google search says a dude named Jack Schwarz bought the brand from PBG in 2017.

Nice!
Looks similar to a Reverend.

Rivolta Mondata II

It's certainly just a taste thing, to each their own and all that, but I think that guitar lives up to it's brand name. Rivolting (sic).
