Loaded with a single Gibson USA Dirty Fingers pickup at the bridge, the Tom Delonge Signature guitar is an incredibly hot humbucker that produces fiery, powerful tones that suit Delonge's own style. The tone is easily adjustable via the single volume control, which lets you create a clean, vintage sound packed with mighty projection.
The Tom Delonge Riviera 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 Epiphone Signature Tom Delonge 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 Tom Delonge Riviera provides a full-rounded and airy chime which allows the guitarist to achieve almost acoustic tones.
