EpiphoneRiviera Custom P93 Electric Guitar
Featuring three P-90 "dog-ear" single-coil pickups and a Bigsby tailpiece. The Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 is modeled after one of Epiphones most enduring classics, the Riviera. First introduced in the early 60s, the Epiphone Rivieras semi-hollow design has been a favorite of players from all genres and generations including blues great Otis Rush, Lou Reed of the Velvet Underground, and The Strokes Nick Valensi, who have all found that the Rivieras legendary ES-body shape could produce great tones with any pickup variation. Over the years, the Riviera has been seen with humbuckers, mini-humbuckers, and P-90s. But now the Custom P93 has the rare distinction of giving players a new sound and a new distinctive look.The Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 uses 3 Epiphone Dogear Alnico-V P-90 pickups for a punch that leaves all other three-single coil pickup guitars in the dust. And when matched with the bell-like tones of the ES-style body, a Bigsby B70 tremelo plus a stunning Wine Red finish with gold hardware, the Riviera Custom P93 truly becomes of our eras great instruments.The Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 is constructed of premium laminated maple with a mahogany center block and a hand-fitted, glued-in mahogany 24.75 scale neck with a SlimTaper D profile and 22 medium jumbo frets with a 1.68 nut for great string spacing and intonation.

Controls include 3 individual Volume pots (for each pickup) and 1 Master Tone.
