DISC Epiphone Ltd Edition Riviera Custom P93 Royale

Details

The Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 Royale is modeled after one of Epiphone's most enduring classics, the Riviera. Introduced in the early 60's, the Epiphone Riviera's semi-hollow design has been a favorite of players from all genres and generations including blues great Otis Rush, Lou Reed of the Velvet Underground, and The Strokes' Nick Valensi, who all found the Riviera's legendary ES-body shape could produce great tones with any pickup variation. Over the years, the Riviera has been seen with humbuckers, mini-humbuckers, and P90's. But now the Custom P93 Royale has the rare distinction of giving players a new sound and a new, distinctive look.

The Riviera Custom P93 Royale uses not two but three Epiphone Dogear Classic pickups for a punch that leaves all other three single coil pickup guitars in the dust. And when matched with the bell-like tones of the ES-style body plus a stunning Pearl White finish, sparkling gold trim, gold hardware, and a gold Bigsby B70 tremolo, the P93 Royale is truly becomes of our era's great instruments and perhaps the most striking of the Royale family.

Semi-hollow Design, Solid Craftsmanship:

The Riviera Custom P93 is constructed of premium laminated Maple with a Mahogany centre block and a hand-fitted, glued-in Mahogany 24.75" scale neck with a SlimTaper™ "D" profile and 22 medium jumbo frets with a 1.68" nut for great string spacing and intonation. Other details include a Rosewood fingerboard with Mother-of-Pearl Parallelogram Inlays, quality electronic parts including full-size, 1" 500K Ohm potentiometers, Epiphone's all-metal pickup selector switch, '60s era Epiphone logo on the headstock, and a heavy-duty output jack.

Ground Breaking Electronics:

The Riviera Custom P93's fabulous semi-hollowbody sound is voiced by three Epiphone Dogear classic P90 pickups with Alnico™ V magnets. Controls include 3 Volume pots for each pickup and 1 Master Tone. The all-metal toggle works as it would with a 2-pickup guitar with the rhythm position activating the neck pickup and the lead toggle position activating the bridge pickup. The middle pickup can be used in any position by adjusting its volume control.
