In this brief comparison, we are going to be putting two products head to head. You might think it all comes down to the price, but frankly there is a lot more to it. This article is part of a series called The 10 Best Hollow Body Guitars & Semi Hollow Body Guitars of 2019
Everyone has different preferences and priorities, so to make choosing easier we have attempted to give a frank review of the products. Let's start with the Epiphone Riviera Custom P93 Semi Hollow Body Electric Guitar. Polishing the art of making guitars since 1873, Epiphone is one of America's oldest and best value semi-hollow body guitar makers for every style of music. This brand ignites both history and the spirit of innovating to differentiate its product from other contenders in town.
And now we will have a look at our second product, the Gretsch G2420 Streamliner Hollowbody. With same passion like in 1883, Gretsch is here to innovate and set a new circle who for those who are here to do. This company does not only manufacture semi hollow bodied guitars but give every single equipment with a soul of its own.
After the success of Epiphone’s most enduring classic, the Riviera, this company thought of raising the levels a little more. As Rivera was known for producing the best tones without any pickup variation the new boss in the town known as Custom P93 gave same vintage features but with a new sound and distinctive look.
From a small Brooklyn workshop to headquarters in Savannah this company has proven many competitors wrong.
