What a guitar to own...
A guitar from the "Golden Era"

This is the real deal when it comes to guitars, an Epiphone Riviera, aged and played in...

Serial number R97B 0547.
This beautiful guitar was made in 1997
at the infamous Peerless Plant, Korea
Guitars from this factory are highly regarded,
extremely well made and will only increase in value.
Please do not mistake this for the new
lesser quality Chinese models.

Built in 1997 this guitar's wood has 15 years of ageing,
so it now has a sound that literally cannot be replicated.

A real piece of quality....

...thin line hollow maple body with a rare Ebony finish,
that looks absolutely stunning against the chrome hardware and original white scratchplate,
including deluxe retro style machine heads
and a body binding that's taken on a lovely
creamy colour with age...

 This is a gorgeous guitar!

Two Epiphone Alnico classic full size humbuckers
for authentic vintage tone,
combined with the aged wood
the guitar sounds really, really beautiful.

This guitar has been professionally
~ cleaned
~ polished
~ waxed
~ re-strung on the 18/05/12 with 10 gauge strings
ready to be played !

General playing wear to be expected,
but overall condition is very good for a guitar of this age.
It's one previous owner has looked after the guitar
and it has no bumps, dings, etc to speak of
and no noticeable fret wear.
The Epiphone hard case is included with the guitar
and is in fine condition for a used case
with all latches working and normal signs of use.

You will not be disappointed with this guitar !!

Any other questions regarding the guitar, please do not hesitate to ask.
