    If anyone is interested or knows anyone who *maybe* interested in selling their ‘80s Riviera I’m highly interested! Have been scouring eBay and Reverb for months and haven’t seen a stop-tail model in maybe 6 months. Just posting here to try an expand my net. Thanks for your time!

    Well yes, it’s my Holy Grail guitar. I’ve been wanting one for 20-odd years but have always been unable to afford when available or flush when they’re none to be found. Just out of curiosity, what’d you have in mind?

    There are fine other MiJ Semis out there,
    probably even cheaper and brand-new

    Thanks! Maybe one of these would be a nice substitute while I continue hunting my white (preferably wine red) whale!
