• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

I own a lot of Gibson guitars,but only own 2 Epi's including this one.

I never had a chance to audition one of these when they came out,but I found this one used in great condition for a very good price.

I couldn't pass this beauty up, so it's now in my collection.

I've read the reviews good and bad on the issues with the pickup configuration and not having a master volume in this guitar, but I've been able to make it work.

To me it's all how you set the amp to showcase a particular guitar and how to coax the best tones out of it.

Anyway, here's some pics of my new Epi. Riviera:
