Built in Kalamazoo as a complement to the Gibson ES-335 the Riviera holds high praise for 60's semi hollow lovers. This guitar shows the original Royal Tan finish, original pickups (one with and one without the stickers) and replaced tuners are the only notable modification. This guitar is unique to Rivieras seen after the Gibson acquisition in 1964. The headstock keeps the tradition of smaller "Gibson Style" headstocks making it unique to most of what you see on the market. A rare piece that stands up in a collection and in your hands.
