  1. Hi all, I have my eye on grabbing a Nighthawk when some $ comes in, and I'd prefer an ebony model, but the more I peek around the less sure I am how ubiquitous ebony is. It seems more likely that I'm going to find it in fireburst or natural finish. Is ebony a harder finish to find for this model (i.e. is it model dependent)? Cheers.
  2. Thanks, @Little Jerry. A different sized shim might be a better idea than sanding down the one I have.
  3. Thanks, @kidblast - I appreciate the context, and yeah, I hear you on the subjective aspect of what, ultimately, "works". As a beginner I'm figuring that out for myself.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion, re: sanding. Question: aside from raising the strings, what effect, positive or negative would raising the bridge have on tone or playability?
  5. Hi all, I have a 2nd hand Riviera P93 and it's come to my attention (via my guitar instructor who has made some adjustments to it -- the previous owner liked his action high and his string gauge heavy) that the bridge pickup is a little high -- as in the spacer connecting the pickup to the guitar top is too thick. Can anyone who has a P93 tell me if this looks odd? One of the reasons for the concern is that the (low) E-string is buzzing on the pickup and the pickup screw can't be adjusted any lower. I'm a newb, so I don't mind hand-holding in order to understand what's going on.
  6. Wow, @LPSpII, thank you so much for the offer. I've since ordered one from WD. If there are any issues, however, I will take you up on your very kind offer.
  7. Hi all, I have a Riviera that I bought used. It did not come with a pickguard and I'm interested in maybe one day getting one. Thing is, I don't see this item listed on the Epiphone/Gibson site (unless I'm looking in the wrong place). Are these available retail or are they only available used on reseller sites?
  8. Thanks, @LOSTVENTURE. I was tooling around and found the following on an Epiphone vendor's listing for this model: The plot thickens...
  9. Hello all, I've got a Epi Riviera P-93, and I'm wondering what the default activations are through the pickup selector switch. My assumption is as follows: UP: neck MIDDLE: middle and bridge DOWN: bridge That said, I've seen other people online articulate this differently (for example the middle position activates all three pickups). Would someone be able to clarify the definitive default configuration? Thank you!
