1966 Epiphone Riviera

Super cool 1966 Epiphone Riviera dripping with vintage mojo! The Riviera follows the same basic construction as its bigger brother the Gibson ES 335 albeit with mini humbuckers and the longer headstock profile. The patent mini humbuckers in this guitar sound particularly sweet and clear and have the clarity of PAF’s to my ear. The guitar shows plenty of play wear and crazing to the finish, but in a good way with no breaks or repairs. The serial number has a vintage “pinup” decal covering the serial # on the reverse of the headstock but thankfully its written in pencil through the “F” hole where the label would have been. It looks to be re fretted with plenty of meat on the wire and the nut is 40mm. It weighs in at just 3.8 kg or 8.5 lbs. The Epiphone “tremotone vibrola” works well or the arm can be removed if preferred. Pickups read 6.8k neck and 7.4k ohms bridge and the guitar comes in a 60’s fitted case.
