Epiphone Riviera

It doesn’t get much better than this! A stunning example of a Matsumoku built Epiphone Riviera. If you know about these guitars then you know what incredible players they are, truly some of the finest Epiphones ever built and becoming increasingly more desirable year upon year.

Our 1977 Riviera is one of the best we’ve seen. 100% original and in incredible condition, this thing hasn’t seen a lot of action in its 45 years on the planet. Complete with original hard case, allen key, case lock and inspection paperwork dating to 17th of December 1977. Wow!


  • Full Maple construction with a Maple center block
  • Maple neck
  • Rosewood fingerboard
  • 22 frets
  • 2x Epiphone humbuckers
  • 2x Volume control
  • 2x Tone control
  • Epiphone Frequensator tailpiece
  • Epiphone tuners
  • Original hardcase

Our old Riviera is in excellent condition, it’s a total time warp! There’s some age related marks present (pictured) but for a 45 year old guitar it’s in amazing condition. Freshly set up with D’Addario 10’s and ready to go!
