"Loving this New Epiphone Riviera, Sparkling Burgundy !!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I just got this New 2020 Epiphone Riviera, in Sparkling Burgundy last week and it's a really Great guitar , I have several of the new 2020 Epiphones and this one by far is my favorite. First off the neck plays great just the right profile a comfortable C shape, and this ones Frets are spot on, no high Frets or sprouting , and the fretboard really looks Great like Rosewood , action on mine is perfect 5/64" at the 12th Fret low E, they have the same Pro Mini Humbuckers that the Crestwood Customs have and they sound really good on this semi hollow , got that Jangle to them , the finish is pretty perfect I love the Sparkling Burgundy its different from all those burst finishes and I like to be different lol, there was a little bit of dirt or wood dust in the paint in one f hole but it's really hard to see, the tuners are pretty solid too , although it's not stated on zZounds or Epiphones website the Gear ratio, I'm sure they are 18:1 , they hold tune very well, whoever scraped the binding on this one should be teaching everyone else at the Epiphone factory how to do it right , there is zero paint on any of the binding , pretty perfect, this guitar looks ,feels and sounds Great , and zZounds has always treated me right over the last 12 years , Great customer service and I love the ALL ACCESS PASS I have with 12 pay plans, do yourself a favor and check out the New Epiphone Riviera , at zZounds, a very Cool Guitar from a very cool dealer.
