Aquamarine Riviera??

Recommended Posts

I just came across this on eBay

 

http://www.ebay.com/...=item258c950d66

 

I've never seen or heard of a Riviera in that color. Actually, I don't think I've seen any Epiphone with that finish. Anyone ever see this finish before?

No thats the first one i have seen like that .I like it .

I think when epi opened up the peerless factory, there were some weird guitars that made it through the QC, this being one. I love that finish so, so much. I have a Sheraton that has the body of a peerless casino (in finish alone, it's still semi-hollow), so I think there was still a learning curve back in 96

I've had quite a few of the peerless Rivieras. I have a cherry and a sunburst right now but I've owned pretty much every color-natural, metallic black, silver sparkle, turquoise, burgundy mist. This one is not the turquoise finish as mentioned before. I guess the Peerless factory just had a very small batch of some odd colors.
