Very nice 1993 Terada made in Japan Epiphone Riviera (pre-Elitist) in great original condition with original case. Beautiful Cherry finish. The body has a nicely figured front and back that I’ve tried to capture in the photos. Guitar sounds lovely with great quality electrics and plays effortlessly. These Terada Epiphones are consistently well made and subsequently became named 'Elite' models...and later renamed as the current Japanese 'Elitest' models.    I would describe the neck as a typical 60’s type. Some light markings here and there to the finish that I’ve tried to capture in the pics. Beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with 12" radius and frets in great condition. Has an attractive natural 30 year old patina to top quality hardware and part of the tailpiece finish has flaked away over the years. Original tuners work great and hold tune well. Solid maple centre block. Comfortable and nicely balanced standing or sitting.  (Terada production featured a 12" fretboard radius as opposed to a Matsumoku 14" radius).

These are obviously long out of production and a gem in Epiphone’s back catalogue. Very cool alternative to an ES-335 etc. Regrettable sale but because of a vintage acquisition that came my way.
