If you love the sound and feel of classic '60s semi-hollows but don't care for the vintage mark-up, look no further than this Epiphone Riviera. Sporting an iconic Frequensator tailpiece and a robust set of Epiphone PRO Mini Humbuckers, this beauty churns out a broad array of stellar sounds.

Crafted with a maple laminate body, this semi-hollow projects a bright resonance with plenty of top-end clarity. Thanks to its solid maple center block, this guitar has no short supply of sustain and is surprisingly resistant to feedback during high-volume performances. With its rounded "C" shaped mahogany neck, this guitar is a joy to play, whether you prefer playing gentle chords or fiery leads.

Powering this Epiphone is a pair of PRO Mini Humbuckers that pump out a tight, beefy tone. Run this semi-hollow through your favorite clean amp, and you'll be pleasantly greeted by warmth, richness, and articulation. Kick on your dirt pedals and crank the gain, though, and this guitar will blow you away with speaker-shredding sonic destruction.

One of the most remarkable features of this guitar is the Frequensator tailpiece. This design makes playing demanding lines on the upper strings easier while giving the bass strings a tighter bottom-end. If you're a lead player, you'll love this feature - it makes soloing effortless without sacrificing your Riviera's gorgeous tone.

Capturing the hearts of guitar legends Lou Reed, Nick Valensi, Otis Rush, and more, the Epiphone Riviera is one of the coolest semi-hollows ever built. Check it out if you've been looking for a guitar that boasts stunning tones, elegant aesthetics, and excellent modern performance features.
