 This is a 1996 Epiphone Riviera GF (gold flake) made for Gibson by Peerless in Korea.  STAMPED 2ND on back of peghead, likely for some finish flaw but I've looked it over and nothing really stands out.  I've owned several of these in different colors and each one was stamped 2nd, so they apparently had trouble with the metal flake finish which is likely why this was discontinued after a pretty short time.  Incidentally, Epiphone 2nds  like this one were sold with full warranty  to original owner and carry  serial numbers  unlike Epis stamped ''USED'' which  have serial numbers removed, no warranty and frequently serious problems (just a little footnote for those who might be curious).  Although they called it a Riviera, the features are really 335 style (original Rivieras, and later reissues, had mini-humbuckers).  Pro setup, plays well, sounds good, POTS ARE PRETTY NOISY at the moment but I'll see if I can get those cleaned up (if I get to it I'll add that to the listing; otherwise, plan on using some appropriate spray on the pots to get rid of the scratchiness.  This is not an uncommon problem on these guitars as this was one place where they used parts inferior to stock Gibson ones).   No repairs done or needed, frets are good, some minor scratches in finish  and on pickup covers from normal handling and use but nothing out of the ordinary. Includes an aftermarket Canadian hardshell archtop case (stock case for these was an import flattop). Sort of a rare guitar as Epiphon
