Hey guys,

How big is an Epiphone Riviera compared to a Les Paul ?



I would like to buy a Riviera but I'm afraid it will look too big on me. I'm something like 5.8ft (178cm) and 136 pounds (62kg) just to give you an idea.

Unfortunately I can't try it in a store, the only guitar store around doesn't have Epiphone.

Thanks !

might not be much help as I've never played one but I've seen them next to les pauls and there quite a bit larger

It's gonna look HUGE compared to your Les Paul

but it's still not too bad.. takes some getting used to..

I'm 6 foot, >200 lbs..

Les Pauls actually have pretty small bodies, just thicker than the average. That Riviera looks like it might have a 15" or 13" wide body, which is pretty big alone and considerably wider/longer than an LP.

So what if it's big?? (That's what she said.)

If you want it, buy it. Then rock the sh*t out of it.

I have the P93 riviera and a les paul....trust me its bigger. I'm 5'6" and 200 lbs and it still looks big on me compared to my les paul. But look at Noel Gallagher, hes a skinny dude and all he plays is the 335 body style guitar and it looks alright on him. Whatever sound ya wanna go for should be the final factor.
