Epiphone Riviera P93 - with THREE P90s

Dear Guitarz Blog,

On Tuesday you posted about a hollowbody guitar with 3 p90 pickups and asked 'did you ever see a hollow body guitar with 3 p90s?', well there is one sitting in my front room!

I bought this guitar a year ago from a local guitar shop for £300. Google has revealed to me that it is an Epiphone Riviera P93, a thinline semi-hollowbody guitar with 3 p90 pickups, a threeway selector, 3 volume pots, a master tone pot and a bigsby tailpiece with a tune-o-matic bridge. The selector switch selects the neck and middle pickup in the top position, all three pickups in the middle position and the middle and bridge pickup in the bottom position. It was released sometime around 2007-8 so it is definitely a modern guitar!

just thought you might be interested in this guitar after Tuesday's post.

Keep up the good work,
your loyal reader,
Rob J
Oh dear, it looks like I'm going to have to watch Bertram coming out with wild things such as "did you ever see a hollow body guitar with 3 P90s?"

I just KNEW someone was going to challenge that - it was an open invitation! And as was already pointed out in the comments, there's also the Gibson ES-5, as played by T Bone Walker.

Thanks for showing us your guitar, Rob. It's a beauty!
