Epiphone by Gibson Rivera Semi Hollow Body
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-12)
Price : US $127.52
Up for bidding is an Epiphone Rivera Semi-Hollow Body guitar. The guitar is a classic cherry red and is in the same style as the Epiphone Dot, Sheraton, and the Gibson ES-335. The body is in very good shape and has no major dings or anything. The original Epiphone case is included along with the white pickgaurd (I just thought it looks better without it.) Thats the good news.
The bad news is that this guitar may need some work. The volume knobs crackle and the signal comes and goes. I think some new volume and tone pots or a rewire should fix this. It is not something I know how to do so I haven't messed with it. The headstock broke in two when I dropped it at a gig once. It was reglued by pro wood worker friend of mine so it is straight and solid. There is a chuck missing out of the back of the neck above the first fret because I couldn't find all the pieces from the break. I think this could probably be filled in with filler and sanded smooth again.
Other than that the guitar plays really nice. It is a very comformtable and fast neck with a short scale. It could be a really great project axe for the right person. Because of these issues the guitar will be sold 'as is.'
I prefer pay pal but will accept certified check or money order. I will only ship to the lower 48 states.
