And those Anderton videos are really informative! I find them very entertaining, as well. I've learned a lot by watching those guys.
Glenn, I went with the burst, same guitar as in the video. I don't own an electric with mini-humbuckers so that was the excuse I used to talk myself into this buy.

That will be a really nice guitar! That's a lovely finish and I thought the Riviera sounded terrific in the video!

I have no experience with mini-humbuckers, but I really like the sound from that guitar.

I've never had a guitar with mini-humbuckers so this will be a first for me. I'm really diggin' the clean tone he's getting from that guitar. It sounds like it can be dialed in to be somewhere between a single coil and a humbucker. That'll be interesting.

I also have a Tone King Sky King amp on backorder with GC. Maybe I'll get lucky and these will show up together.

Well, you have some fun toys to look forward to in the new year!

I, too, liked the quality of the clean tones from those mini-humbuckers. I can't get over how beautiful that finish on that sunburst guitar is!

I REALLY liked what I was hearing from that Riviera in the video (guitar straight to amp with a little reverb, middle position - both pickups). Fat !!

GC is telling me the Riviera I ordered should be in stock on the 11th, so a NGD coming soon. They also told me that stock date for the Tone King Sky King amp I ordered was pushed back into March. Ugh!

At least the wait for your Riviera won't be too long! We'll look forward to the NGD when it happens!

GC missed the original target date of January 11th for the Epi Riviera I bought to be back in stock. They also missed the next date they gave me, January 22nd. They also pushed the earliest delivery for my Tone King Sky King into late March. Oh well... it'll happen when it happens.

Hi Jim,

That's too bad. But hopefully you'll appreciate both the guitar and the amp when they do arrive. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.

Be well!

- Glenn

I'm an old Gretsch guy at heart, but I've always had a soft spot for USA Epiphones (New York or Kalamazoo) - played a few Casinos/Rivieras when they were new, others over the years, sorry I never grabbed one when they were cheap back in the '70s (or the NOS Al Caiola Standard - think B.B. King Lucille with P-90's and a cherry finish - Manny's had for $150 at that time); love the fact that Epi's trying to challenge Gretsch on their "affordable vintage" home turf, but those anachronistic '59-style necks on the USA models (that's not why we liked the 60s originals, guys) - as well as the "Slim-Taper D" (which bears no resemblance whatsoever to its sleek Gibson namesake) used on the Chinese stuff since 2008 - were/are a big mistake, and if not for that I'd own one or the other right now...
