I was on the fence with a Sparkling Burgundy Riviera.

It's still a possibility.

I chose a Epi Casino Worn Olive Drab.

Your thoughts?

I think, with the different Bridge and PU's, it will be different enough to justify a second purchase. There are Guitars where I really like Mini Humbuckers.

If I didn't have my Sheraton I'd have that one, but I can't quit my Sherry....
I had a genuine '66 Rivi that I let get away☹️

I tried a Sparkling Burgundy Riviera and it's heavy.

I'm on the fence with it.

It's not a deal breaker but something to thnk about.

I then tried an Epiphone Limited Edition White Dove.

Surprisingly good.

I was impressed.

Didn't pull the trigger but it's something to think about.

I went to a different GC and tried a Worn Olive Drab Casino.

I wanted one without trying it.

It's light and sounds good.

Let's go home together.

Honeymoon on.

Those other Epi's are in the back of my mind.

I have an Epi Riviera in Royal Tan. Excellent guitar. Lovely sound from the minis and the neck is great. I had a 90s Casino from new and just couldn't get on with the neck. The Riviera is great. I've had it a couple of months and it is a keeper.

I think a Riviera is in my future.

I bonded with the Casino.

IMO, Casino's weight; feel and P 90 sound are magic.
