Full Description

Epic humbuckers

Mounted at the neck and bridge are the Epiphone PRO Mini humbuckers. They combine vintage sound and innovation. The 18 Nickel Silver unit bases and covers deliver a crisp and transparent output and employ a bright tone thanks to the way they enhance the higher frequencies. This means that every note you play will sing out with shimmering clarity, laced with a beautiful high end sparkle. Their small size is deceptive as they actually offer a powerful sound that contradicts their size. The miniature shape and lower iron content is necessary for definition and that stunning vintage jangle which takes you back to '60s blues. But don't feel limited in sound either, the beautiful clarity is suitable for a range of playing styles, you can perform safe in the knowledge that not a single note will be lost amidst the mix.

A sturdy bridge

The Crestwood Custom Tremotone also comes equipped with the Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic system, which has remained a reliable favourite over the years when it comes to bridges. Experience incredible precision when adjusting individual strings and show off your pitch bends and other playing techniques with ease knowing no string with slip out of tune. It really is the ultimate vibration transfer machine and there's a reason it has stayed an Epiphone staple. The LockTone hardware stays put when you change strings thanks to spring clips that grab tightly onto the posts. But not only is it practical, it also improves the guitar's sound. The small amount of wiggle room provides more sustain, meaning you are left with a fuller tone that offers ample opportunity for shining overtones.

A marvellous maple body

Crafted with luscious, layered maple, the body of the Epiphone Riviera offers a bright and snappy tone that is balanced in attack and sustain. Along with glistening articulation of mid to high frequencies, maple provides brilliant separation of notes to avoid that dreaded muddy sound, teaming perfectly with the definition the humbuckers bring. Such a sparkling tone lends itself wonderfully to gorgeous overtones, resulting in an immersive, full sound. Beyond its tonal qualities, maple is strikingly strong; it can endure any kind of crazy, energetic performance as well as being able to cope with extensive travelling from gig to gig. It will last you for years to come, a compelling bonus for such a stunning guitar that is rich in history.

Stability and spectacular sound

The neck of this guitar offers incredible strength and durability thanks to its mahogany construction. So, don't hold back, it can take an atrocious amount of ferocious playing. Mahogany also brings a whole host of tonal characteristics that promise to enrich your sound. The enhancement of lower frequencies creates a truly resonant tone that is both immersive and captivating, pairing well with the bright response of the humbuckers. The Indian laurel fretboard then provides a response that is similar to rosewood and hugely beneficial to your sound. Not only is it robust, which is needed for the most frequently attacked part of your guitar, it softens any piercing frequencies, resulting in a stunning, well-rounded sound. Its smooth and fast finish also offers superb playability, so you can fret at speed with absolutely no hindrance.
