That looks fantastic. Very nice mods. Did those P-90s drop right in? I'd like to do that with an IBG ES-335.

Yes they do, they are a direct HB replacement from Guitar Fetish.

I'm useless at posting links but richtonemusic.co.uk has the burgundy and tan Riviera in stock! £599. 

I am literally about to buy a Gibson Les Paul Special TV yellow tomorrow, I've always wanted a riviera with mini hums and freq tailpeice.  I was hoping to just get the Gibson and deal with gas for the riviera in a few months when I thought they would appear. Dilemma!

They also have some interesting new colours in the casino, worn ebony and denim? I hadn't seen anything about these new colours.

My favorite is the GFS Mean 90's but they also come as Dream 90's which also sound really good but not quite as hot.

Thanks to your post, I read up on them earlier. The Mean 90s do seem better suited to me. Thanks so much for your help and suggestions. Happy Thanksgiving.
