A Guitar with its own tone!!

28.10.2014
How on this earth am i supposed to describe sound!! If your looking for a guitar that mayby sounds like some other guitar in your minds ear then i suggest you dont get this guitar.8-)

It has tones all of its own.Lots of them as well.

This is the best birthday present i have ever had. i have played it every day since july when i got it. (i have quite a few guitars to chose from)

Its an odd thing how often do you see 3 p90 pickups !!! not very often but to make it even better how often have you seen something with 3 p90 and a bigsby and all hardware in gold???

The quality of the workmanship on this guitar leaves little to be desired and not a lot really for you to do set up wise out of the box. However because i as a matter of course allways put new strings on (new guitars) i did do my own very quick fret level and polish and now the action is really low.

My only gripe but i dont see how you can for the money would be the bridge its a TOM with retainer wire this does indeed rattle a bit as a lot of them do and at low volume it could disturb some. The solution turn it up louder!!! realistically i may at some point get rid and get a wireless bridge however no massive rush.

Now the fun bit discribing tone- it has its own, and it may not be for all. turn 3 p90 all the way up and you have such a rich growl you are not likely to here anywhere else that often Roll off on the volume and you should find your own p90 sweet spot. It is never going to be as sparkly as a single p90 melody maker style can be with a single p90 this is i think due to all the magnets around !!! But with 3 volume knobs and a three way selector and a master tone if you like to fiddle then with this guitar you could be in the zone for a long time hunting tone.

Excellent medium range guitar

Ruggero, 14.03.2018
The Riviera P93 is a beautiful guitar. I read on blogs and reviews that the construction quality isn't really consistent across all models, but the one that I got from Thomann is flawless. The finish, bindings, frets and setup were perfect out of the box. Unfortunately I had to bring it to the shop because of a problem with the electronics (the bridge pickup has no volume once every 10 times I play it).
Other than that it's a great guitar with a great design and offers a lot of options for sculpting your sound, with 3 P90 pickups wich can be blended with each other in every which way.
The Bigsby seems great, but I use tremolo systems very gently on all my guitars, so I wouldn't know how it beahaves if stressed more.
The most important thing is: I always feel inspired when I pick it up. The neck feels amazing (the D shape makes it very playable) and the sound is rounded, full, rich and never dull.
It's made in China and it's dubbed as a limited edition, but I don't think that it's gonna go out of stock anytime soon.
