I’ve been looking to buy a Nick Valensi Elitist Epiphone Riviera for a while now to no avail.
 

If anyone has one and is willing to part with it I would be very interested in purchasing it! There was a sunburst model and a maple model I would be interested in purchasing either.

 

Thanks!

Those very rarely come up for sale, as they were only produced for a couple of years.

I used to own the Korean version that Gibson put out after discontinuing the Terada (Japan) Elitist version.  It remained in the lineup for a number of years (mine was a 2010), and it was quite well made by the Unsung factory.  Most importantly, it came with the same USA-made Gibson P-94 pickups.  If you happen upon one, it would be worth a look.

Yes I still have it and It's for sale.  I added a stop tailpiece (installed by a professional luthier)  The original frequensator tailpiece comes with it.  I will ship in a hardshell case.  Price is firm at $1900.

Ok cool. Could you PM me some pictures of the guitar? Sorry for the late response—I think I only have notifications turned on for PMs.

I have one with original case and pick guard. It has some belt buckle marks on the back as I used it as a touring guitar. If it's any interest, I also used it to record an album with Muse a good few years back. Hard to see what these things are worth now but I know they're rare. How much would you offer?

And you recorded an album with Muse? That's crazy!
