The Riviera Custom is loaded with a trio of Epiphone 'Dogear' P90 Pickups that deliver a huge sound, which is powerful yet crisp. The P90's vintage tone matches the Riviera's 60s appearance perfectly, and they deliver clean, tight and rhythmic punch for classic rock tones. The Riviera is equipped with a LockTone Tune-O-Matic Bridge and Wilkinson 14:1 tuners, which work together to provide stable and reliable tuning. A Bigsby B700 Tailpiece Tremolo completes the look by adding a beautiful, gold vintage aspect.
The Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 Guitar is crafted from laminated maple, which offers a lightweight guitar that delivers bright, crisp and twangy tones. The maple is wrapped around a mahogany centre block for enhanced resonance, and with two 'f' holes the Riviera Custom provides a full-rounded and airy chime which allows the guitarist to achieve almost acoustic tones.
The Riviera Custom P93 is also equipped with a smooth mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard, helping to expand the guitar's rich tonal properties with extra focus and warmth. The neck provides an incredibly focused midrange for a thick, meaty mid-section, while the fingerboard enhances the sound with good depth by expanding the lows and highs. The combination of mahogany and rosewood offers a well-balanced tone with a beautifully dynamic range and overtones that stack up to offer a luscious bloom for extra depth.
The Riviera was first introduced in the early 60s, and it has since been favoured by a range of music icons including Otis Rush, Lou Reed and Nick Valensi. The Riviera features the iconic ES body shape, with a double cutaway and comfortable contours for ease of play. The Custom P93 model is now equipped with a trio of P-90 Dogear pickups and a Bigsby B700 Tailpiece for the ultimate vintage look that is reminiscent of the 60s.
