Miki + 12-String Epiphone Riviera = Musical Bliss

Miki and her
Epiphone Riviera 12-String Electric Guitar
in axology, this would be a one-time 1993 run Epiphone Riviera XII made in Nashville
These models have a ringing sound, perfect for Lush's haunting melodies
(ed. note: Miki may be the only person in the world to have a Riviera 12 of this series)

Teamed-up with her Gibson Firebird, a Marshall 1960B Straight Cabinet (4x12), and five Boss pedal set-up (Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive, Boss DD-3 Digital Delay, Boss DS-1 Distortion, Boss GE-7 Equalizer, Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive) Miki can "create just about anything we do on records. Plus I just love all those cool bright colors!" - circa 1994

Thanks to for the specifics!

  1. To be more accurate, the Gibson Custom Shop from Nashville made 300 Epi Riviera reissues in 1993. 299 of them were 6-strings, with a Bigsby tailpiece, and one, yes, only ONE had 12 strings, namely Miki's, at her request.
    You forgot Miki's Gibson ES-335/12 which, as it names suggests, is also a 12 strings. The Riviera12 and the '65 non-reverse Firebird both replaced Miki's Rickenbacker 370/12. About the Gibson, I still wonder how old it is. I'd like Miki to disclose its serial number from which we could deduce its age (I own of of these too, a '67 one).
