Up for sale, a 2014 Epiphone Limited Edition Elitist 1966 Custom Riviera Outfit semi-hollowbody in mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, COA and hangtags. An extremely rare limited run model produced in Japan at the Terada factory, this Riviera is replete with premium features including a gloss nitro lacquer Honeyburst finish, USA-made Gibson electronics, an ABR-1 bridge with nylon saddles, and a 1960s SlimTaper neck profile carve.

The maple body is paired with a one-piece mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard, yielding the crisp attack of maple and the sweet, airy qualities of the semi-hollow construction. The Gibson USA mini humbuckers cover a broad spectrum, similar to a traditional humbucker but with more top end character. These pickups deliver plenty of sparkle, growl and richness, and each position on the three-way toggle delivers a distinct tone. This Riviera weighs 8lbs 2oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

The gloss nitro lacquer finish, advertised by Epiphone as "Honeyburst," is a very faithful approximation of the unique Sunburst used by Epiphone on the Riviera model in the 1960s. There's barely a scratch on the body, and the gloss on the neck profile is similarly flawless.

The original elephant gray hardshell case with plush blue interior is included, along with the COA and factory paperwork.
