2020 Epiphone Riviera Semi-hollowbody Sparkling Burgundy


Recommended Posts

What do people think of the 2020 Epiphone Riviera Semi-hollowbody Sparkling Burgundy? Personally I don't see any difference between it and the 2011 Cherry. I preferred the Riviera a few years earlier where the headstock had the crown inlay, think that was Korean made.

I really hope one day Epiphone reissue this 80's Japanese Matsumoko Riviera in Wine Red with full humbuckers, stop bar tail piece and crown inlay. I wouldn't mind modern top hat knobs instead of the vintage ones with large numbers. Also wouldn't mind a modern scratch place with silver E instead of the black small painted E.

The new 2020 ES-335 is setup in a very similar fashion to the Matsumoko Riviera...

Thanks! Crazy I've never seen that one, because it doesn't even show up in the Archtop section of Epiphone's website!

Would be great if they bring back the 345 and 355 again, although the pick guard already being attached would help those scared of a drill like me lol
