First introduced in the early '60s, the Epiphone Riviera's 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. The Custom P-93 has the rare distinction of giving players a new sound and a new distinctive look.
The Riviera Custom P-93 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 tremolo, plus a stunning Wine Red finish with gold hardware, the Riviera Custom P93 truly becomes one of our era's great instruments.
Semi-hollow Design, Solid Craftsmanship
The Riviera Custom P-93 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. Other details include a rosewood fingerboard with pearloid parallelogram inlays, quality electronic parts including full-size 1" 500K Ohm potentiometers, Epiphone's all-metal pickup selector switch, a '60s era Epiphone logo on the headstock, and a heavy-duty output jack.
Ground Breaking Electronics
The Riviera Custom P93's fabulous semi-hollowbody sound is voiced by three Epiphone "Dogear" classic P-90 pickups with Alnico V magnets. Controls include 3 individual Volume pots (for each pickup) and 1 Master Tone. The all-metal toggle works as it would with a 2-pickup guitar with the rhythm position activating the neck pickup and the lead toggle position activating the bridge pickup. The middle pickup can be used in any position by adjusting its volume control.
This Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 comes in Wine Red with gold hardware which extends to the premium 14:1 ratio Wilkinson machine heads which provide superior tuning stability and accuracy. Also included as standard equipment on the Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 is Epiphone's exclusive LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge plus a legendary Bigsby B70 tremelo.
