    Unless it has Gibson p90's, it looks identical to the stock one.

    Jimmy Vivino liked his so much that he tricked it out with three very expensive Seymour Duncan Custom Shop staple-pole pickups, but even after that he didn't like it enough to keep it. I'll let you know more as soon as it lands in my hot little hands. :)

    I did play a stock example in a local store prior to pulling the trigger on that one. I didn't think it needed anything other than better strings and a little attention in the set-up department; it's certainly a lot of guitar for the asking price.

    (By the way, it HAS been out for a while, and I think it's called a P-93...)

    That is what it said on the ZZounds web site that sold it.

    Yeah, this is a "copy" of a Yamaha 503 model that was fantastic.

    Lol. Epiphone was making Rivieras before Yamaha figured out how to make two cycle engines.

    It looks cool. And I love it. I might have to consider it down the rode.

    Actually, the first Yamaha motorcycle was produced in 1955, Rivieras began production in 1962.

    Rivieras were certainly around long before that Yamaha model. The P93 does look an awful lot like the Yamaha, but it is indeed a stretch to say three P90s and a Bigsby constitutes a "copy" when Epiphone has been producing the basic guitar design for decades.
