Epiphone’s Classic Double-Cut Semi-hollowbody Electric
Favored by players like Jorma Kaukonen, Nick Valensi, Robben Ford, and Noel Gallagher, the Epiphone Riviera features a resonant semi-hollow body, along with a sustain-inducing center block. You’ll appreciate how comfortable this semi-hollowbody electric guitar’s Rounded C-shaped mahogany neck is, while its 12-inch-radius laurel fingerboard supplies you with fleet-fingered playability. Plug the Riviera into your favorite guitar amplifier, and you’ll be greeted by gorgeous, vintage-inflected tones via dual PRO mini humbuckers. The Riviera boasts a host of high-end details, including a rich-sounding Graph Tech NuBone nut, super-stable Epiphone Vintage Deluxe tuners, and a rock-solid LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge. A supremely balanced Frequensator tailpiece and an eye-grabbing pickguard with a foil-emblazoned “E” logo complete the Epiphone Riviera.
Semi-hollow construction blends hollowbody warmth and solidbody sustain
The Riviera is a double-cut semi-hollowbody electric guitar, much like the classic ES-335. It has a maple laminate body that produces a bright, resonant tone. Its solid center block performs double duty by enabling long-lasting sustain and resisting feedback. Guitarists of all playing styles will appreciate how comfortable the Riviera’s body shape truly is. If you’re gigging regularly and need a dependable axe with serious sustain, you owe it to yourself to give the Riviera a try.
Dual PRO mini humbuckers produce standout tone
What’s not to love about mini humbuckers? Players have loved them ever since their introduction decades ago. And so do the many guitarists at Sweetwater. They have a tight, beefy tone that’s well-behaved through clean amps. Once you kick on your dirt pedal and crank the gain, though, these humbuckers come alive with rip-roaring fury. The Epiphone Riviera has a classic control layout with individual tone and volume knobs for each pickup, plus a three-way toggle for easy pickup selection. This outstanding semi-hollowbody guitar also includes high-end CTS potentiometers and a heavy-duty output jack.
