Epiphone Jorma Kaukonen Riviera Deluxe
Made in Korea it seems
2 Alnico humbucker pickups US 57
Bigsby vibrato (like gretsch)
volume + tone by micro switch 3 positions
set neck
Very nice production, not at all related to the asking price and what look!


small update and some clarification. Actually manufactured in Korea by Peerless. micro origins are epiphone 57 (verified during their disassembly and change). it is currently equipped with two Gibson 57 Classic from a 335. 3 years crachottent the knobs do not work, the selector works like new. only the jack had a tendency to unscrew from the use of angled jack. the acastillage has hardly tarnished, gold is still doré.Je confirms the high quality manufacturing announced at the time.

small photo much more fun than the header:


Very nice to play
handle the guitar is comfortable but still quite impressive, nothing to do with a Les Paul or any other solid body, against the weight is more than reasonable.
the microphone is serious round, as a treble, he has an excellent bite mainly connected to the knobs have a marshall 11 ...

if the micro origins are very reputable and can suit most of the use, upgrade by micro superior quality improves even the guitar. Grain 57 classic is superb, fully in line with the guitar. no need for multi-purpose, modeling or other device, it sounds good bluesy.


The sound is simply terrible for those who want to play blues, rock trend stones / New York Dolls or 60's garage rock. metal fan, go your way, this beautiful sword is not for you.
Personal, I used mainly the bridge pickup with its crunchy and a bit of reverb, great for back psychotic reaction!
in clean, beautiful natural resonance.

good for her, there's the two samples posted soon'm registered with a walkman without any editing, it gives a (very) slight aperçu.ou then this video just as quickly:

just the JTM30 with no effects or editing the course record with a kodack getting any younger ...


I use it for 4 months and I never tire of it ... this guitar is beautiful, has great sound and is well worth some more gibson huppées.le price is ridiculous considering the benefits. the 60's look thanks to the Bigsby is very successful for those who do not have accounts in Switzerland to afford a vintage 335, Riviera Jorma Kaukonen (guitarist of the airplane and hot tuna for those who would not know. ..) is the perfect model.
one flat, one must store a lot of pace found a copy.
not to be confused with a standard model, finish and the pickups are different.


Ok, it's not a custom shop 335 but frankly for the third of the price you have a beautiful skyscraper, not far from the original, well built and rather rare because most available for some time and had no super either. it crosses from time to time around € 600/700 on the well known auction site, and the price is rather a good deal.

Epiphone Jorma Kaukonen Riviera Deluxe
In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...) Bought in Australia How many frets, what kinds of microorganisms and their configuration? 22 frets, 2 humbuckers Gibson Paf 57 'What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)? Bigsby licensed Which settings (volume, tone, micro switch ...)? 2 volumes, 2 tones What type of neck?


The handle is it nice? Canon! Excellent playability for those who love the sleeves in the spirit Gibson Access to acute (last string) Is it easy? Super easy and it sounds like hell! Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)? Overall weight a bit heavy (difficult to manage on a set of several hours, but invest in a good strap and it relieves the back ... heavier than a Gibson 335) Do you get easily a good sound? ... Direct connection in the amp and it sounds right away, and that having done the test with plenty of amplifiers (transistors through the tube amp) Croyez_moi when I tell you that no pedal or effect is essential with this kind of stupid, you have sound now (typical blues 60 '70's)


Are they suitable for your style of music? Blues, rock, funk, soul ... perfect! With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play? Vox VT50, Vox wah-wah What types of sounds you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)? The good old crunch I tell you ... What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? The micro serious is huge, the fever is very rock 'n roll and the ideal medium for the hot and funky rhythms ...


For how long have you been using it? 6 months What thing do you like most/least about it? I like everything except his weight on his shoulders Did you try many other models before buying it? I am a true fanatic of 335 in general, I started on a Aria Pro II TA50, and an Epiphone Dot 335 through a Gibson 335 (I often played with a friend) and finally the Riviera Jorma Kaukonen who I confess, is my ultimate guitar for life so I'm a fan of the look and golden cherry bigsby its my dream for almost 20 years! (I 35) What is your opinion about the value for the price? This guitar is no longer sold by Epiphone 2ou3 years since so I think his side will rise! Personally I scuffled on ebay to buy an Australian for 1000 euros TTC (with 2 microphones Gibson please, that the previous owner has installed), I did not find it anywhere, so you'll be lucky now if you dig up one! At the time store 800 euros it was worth so I'm not too unhappy to have this chopper great price! A Gibson 345 with Bigsby is trading super mega hyper expensive so you understand my happiness! Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ... 1000 times YES!
