A 60s Classic Returns!

The Epiphone Riviera, one of Epiphone’s original, most enduring classics makes a comeback! First introduced in the early ‘60s, the Epiphone Riviera’s semi-hollow design has been a favorite of players from all genres and generations including blues greats Robben Ford and Otis Rush, Lou Reed of the Velvet Underground, and The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, who have all found that the Riviera’s legendary ES™ body shape can produce great tones with any pickup variation. This Riviera features a layered maple top back and sides, a 3-layer pickguard with the classic metal Epiphone “E”, and comes equipped with Epiphone's LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ adjustable bridge and Frequensator tailpiece. Available in Royal Tan and Sparkling Burgundy full gloss finishes. Hardshell or EpiLite™ case sold separately. We stand behind our products with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson Brands Customer Service.
