Description & Specs

The Epiphone Riviera, one of Epiphone’s original, most enduring classics makes a comeback! First introduced in the early ‘60s, the Epiphone Riviera’s semi-hollow design has been a favorite of players from all genres and generations including blues greats Robben Ford and Otis Rush, Lou Reed of the Velvet Underground, and The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, who have all found that the Riviera’s legendary ES™ body shape can produce great tones with any pickup variation. This Riviera features a layered maple top back and sides, a 3-layer pickguard with the classic metal Epiphone “E”, and comes equipped with Epiphone's LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ adjustable bridge and Frequensator tailpiece.

The guitar had a small crack on the neck professionally repaired. It was glued solid and smoothed and buffed so it is hardly noticeable and does not affect the guitars structural integrity in any way. Otherwise, the techs found no other flaws or issues. It looks, plays and sounds great! Please see pictures for over all condition of the guitar. The actual item for sale is shown in the photographs.
