The Matsumoku-built Epiphone Riviera of the late-1970s and early-1980s went through one minor change during its production run, switching from a Frequensator tailpiece to a standard stopbar in 1982. With full-size Maxon humbuckers, these guitars are a great way to get a 335-type instrument and make for a great alternative to Norlin-era Gibson ES-335s. The guitars produced from 1975 - 1979 were Japanese Domestic models while the guitars produced from 1980 - 1984 were distributed worldwide.
