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 R97A 1120.
This beautiful guitar was made in 1997
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 1997 this guitar's wood has 17 years of ageing,
so it now has a sound that literally cannot be replicated.

This guitar is a fine example of a much sort after model!

...thin line hollow maple body with a rare Ebony finish,
that looks absolutely stunning against the chrome hardware and original white scratchplate, including 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 Alnico classic full size humbuckers
for authentic vintage tone, combined with the aged wood
the guitar sounds really, really beautiful.
