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 R02E 0416.
This beautiful guitar was made in 2002
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 2002 this guitar's wood has 12 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 beautiful and exceptionally rare Vintage cherryburst 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 mini New Yorker humbuckers for authentic
vintage tone, combined with the aged wood
the guitar sounds really, really beautiful.

In preparation for sale the guitar has received the following:-
- Frets polished
- Fretboard cleaned, lemon oiled and conditioned
- Restrung on 16/03/2014 with 11 gauge
Epiphone F Series strings
- String height set at 2.4mm at 17th fret, Bass side
- 2mm at 17th fret, Treble side
- Correct saddle height adjustment
- Correct neck relief adjustment
- all electrics checked
- all hardware including screws have been removed,
cleaned, lightly oiled and reassembled
- Full body and neck cleaned and polished

Overall condition is amazing for a 12 year old used guitar. Originally purchased for a studio project and therefore
the guitar has only been used on a handful of occasions.
It has always been kept in it's hardcase,
(which does show minimal 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.
The hard case is included with the guitar and is also in
very good condition for an used case.
Also included is the original shop tag which states the
serial number, barcode and guitar description which corresponds with the serial number shown in the f hole.

 You will not be disappointed with this guitar !!
