Epiphone Riviera
Semi Acoustic Guitar

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 R04B 1022.
This beautiful guitar was made in 2004
at the famous 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 2004 this guitar's wood has 9 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 cherry red finish, that looks absolutely stunning against the chrome hardware and original white scratchplate, including vintage gotoh style machine heads and a body binding that's taken on a
lovely creamy colour with age...

 This is a gorgeous guitar!

Two Epiphone mini New-Yorker humbuckers
for authentic vintage tone, combined with the aged wood
the guitar sounds really, really beautiful.

Previously owned from new by a professional
session musician, and only ever used,
very rarely, as a backup guitar,
this guitar is in amazing condition and is an
absolute credit to it's one previous owner.
It has always been kept in it's hardcase,
(which does show signs of wear).
There is nothing that detracts from the overall appearance
of the guitar and definitely nothing that affects it's playability. Everything works as it should and there is
no noticeable fretwear.
Only item of any note is that at some point the
metal "E" has come off the scratchplate
and has been glued back on.
The genuine Epiphone hard case, with the large
gold "E" logo, is included with the guitar and has one key.

 You will not be disappointed with this guitar !!
