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 R94M 1956.
This beautiful guitar was made in 1994
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 1994 this guitar's wood has 20 years of ageing, so it now has a sound that literally cannot be replicated.

These guitars are the forerunners to the famous Supernova's and are considered by many to be among the
best and highest quality, especially when made in the "Golden" year, 1994.

A real piece of quality....

...thin line hollow maple body with a beautiful 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 humbuckers for authentic vintage tone, combined with the aged wood the guitar sounds
really, really beautiful.

The guitar has been professionally fitted with a genuine Bigsby B70 Vibrato, a Wilkinson Ultimate Roller Bridge and new pickup rings (original rings and bridge will be supplied see pics), which gives that classic 60's Beatles feel.
The ultimate in quality meeting class.

In preparation for sale the guitar has received the following:-
- Frets polished
- Fretboard cleaned, lemon oiled and conditioned
- Restrung on 05/12/2013 with 10 gauge Rotosound 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 20 year old used guitar.
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 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 !!
