    Category: Product Condition: Pre-Owned

    Our price:

    RARE!! This is an Epiphone Riviera that was build to the exact specs of the original E-360TD Riviera that were build between 1962-1969. In 1993, a limited run of 250 Rivieras and 250 Sheratons were produced in Gibson’s Nashville factory. This was called the Nashville USA Collection. This is #73 of those 250 Rivieras produced. Very hard to find, they have practically vanished off the landscape of the internet, and stores world wide. These guitars were build by the talented craftsman and mostly craftswoman in Gibson’s Nashville plant in Tennessee. Each guitar is built by hand and takes about 6 weeks to complete. This one was finished May 11th 1993. The guitar came in in a fair condition and a broken case. Our luthier really did a great job. Full clean job, polished, fretjob and fretboard treatment. Plays like butter now. We consider her to be in high excellent condition. Pickguard is missing. All shiny lacquer, minor marks, excellent fretwork, two small dents in the neck and original case repaired. Unplugged she sounds solid, resonant, alive and open. Very nice!RARE GUITAR!!!
