Hi guys, yes, I'm a newbie, but I have used all of your wonderful threads in the past to get helpful reviews on products. Anyhow...

 

I am looking for a LATE 70's to EARLY 80's MIJ Epiphone Riviera. Yes, this a Matsumoku Ep. These are becoming harder to find in the U.S. and I am trying all avenues to locate one. Despite not being the nicest or most valuable of Epiphones, this is still something I really want. Thanks for any help/offers!!

Cheers!

Welcome here KB, you can use this forum to do this, there's a Trading Post section where you can advertise to sell/buy/trade, I would title your entry something like "WTB Late 70's to Early 80's MIJ Epiphone Riviera".

WTB = Wanted to Buy.

Thanks for the welcome and the suggestion!! Can I ask you one more question? Why are my images not showing like everyone else's? in my post or my signature? sorry! Total NEWB Question!

I would say because of the mixed letter cases of your opening and ending tags, I always use lowercase and it works fine.

Thanks dude! It was the program I was loading from that was screwing it up with extra tags, ha!

ur in the best place to find one, although ur probably more likely to pull one out ur arse than find one for a decent price. people who own them know how much people want them!

I think it will be as much a case of people who own them want to keep them. That's certainly the case with mine. The only semi that I've played that was considerably better (IMO) than my '83 Riviera was a Gibson custom shop 335 in antique natural finish. Unfortunately, as it would cost me the best part of £2000.00 over and above what I'd likely get for my Riviera I'll stick with the Epi.

Post some Riviera porn if you find one.
