One of the most classic designs and sounds in the Epiphone line-up. This Epiphone Elitist absolutely rips! Unplugged it loudly projects warm, woody tone--a preview of the tonefulness that comes at ya when she's plugged in! The Epiphone PRO mini humbucker pickups are balanced, bright, and full of articulation. Otis Rush, Robben Ford, Lou Reed...can such legendary players be wrong? I submit that they can not. This Riviera is a classic for a reason.
Chances are this guitar will smoke your Gibby. The Elitists are truly incredible instruments.
This one plays as good as she looks! The maple neck has an easy to play thin profile (.785" @ 1st fret, .895" @ 12th), and a 9.5" radius. It's loaded up with a 1.69" bone nut.
This one is lightly used and super clean. There is a finish crack at the neck seam (see pics). Other than that, there is only light, nearly imperceptible: light pick swirl if you hold it to the light. But that's it! She's a beaut, Clark!!
All guitars leaving Eastside Music Supply are freshly setup in house by our team of badass luthiers and will ship with level frets and zero issues. This guitar will ship next day with the original hardshell case!
