The Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 Black Royale is modeled after one of Epiphone’s most enduring classics, the Riviera. Over the years, the Riviera has been seen with humbuckers, mini-humbuckers, and P90’s. But now the P93 Black Royale has the rare distinction of giving players a new sound and a new, distinctive look.

Epiphone Riviera P93 Black Royale

The Riviera Custom P93 Black Royale uses not two but three Epiphone “dog ear” classic P90 pickups with Alnico V magnets for a punch that leaves all other three single coil pickup guitars in the dust.
