The Riviera is one of Epiphone's most enduring electric guitar models. First introduced in the early '60s, the instrument has spanned multiple musical generations and transcended various genres - finding favour with the likes of Robben Ford, Otis Rush, Lou Reed and Nick Valensi (The Strokes).

Keeping many of the signature design elements intact - including an ES semi-hollow body, a punchy mini humbucker pairing, an elegant Frequensator tailpiece and a unique 3-layer pickguard - this reimagined Epiphone Riviera promises a nostalgic sound with superb playability to boot!

Classic Construction

The Epiphone Riviera's body is crafted from strong layered Maple, which is used to form its top, back and sides. Giving the instrument plenty of vibrancy, definition and acoustic-like volume, this is coupled with a solid Maple tone block that creates amazing sustain and resonance.

To add some mid-range warmth, the Riviera's body is joined with a Mahogany neck; topped with an Indian Laurel fingerboard for a silky touch under the fingers. The neck adheres to a rounded "C" profile, which provides excellent comfort for traditionalists and contemporary players alike, while 22 medium jumbo frets offer a controllable feel for vibrato and string bends.

Epiphone PRO Mini Humbuckers

Epiphone's Riviera guitar is instantly recognisable for its dual mini humbucker configuration. This 21st Century iteration comes equipped with two proprietary Epiphone PRO pickups; delivering punchy, mid-heavy tones that are rich in harmonic content. These versatile hum-cancelling pickups are suitable for a range of musical styles - from soulful blues all the way up to modern indie and rock!

High-Quality Hardware

The Epiphone Riviera may be an affordable instrument, but no shortcuts have been taken when it comes to its hardware appointments. Sporting Epiphone's Vintage Deluxe machine heads, a tone-enhancing Graph Tech NuBone nut and a LockTone bridge - you can expect rock-solid tuning stability and fast, stress-free string changes.
