This Epiphone Elite/Elitist Riviera was made in 2002 in the Terada factory in Japan.  These have gotten pretty hard to find, since Gibson discontinued all of the Elitist line, except for the Casino.  Like the other semi-hollow and hollow body guitars of the Elitist line (Sheraton, Broadway, Casino) the Riviera is built to the unbelievably high standard of Terada.  

This one is a superb playing guitar with only light fret wear and low, fast action.  All of the parts are original and the original hard shell case is included.  The chrome has come off of the pickup covers some, exposing a beautiful nickel finish.  There are only a couple of small dings in the finish and these can be seen in the pictures.

 

Free shipping included in the continental US.
