I tried to sell Pat Metheny a Epiphone Riviera 12 string when I was a teenager. I must have been a junior or senior in high school. I must have been 17, in 1974/1975. I saw that he was playing at the Armadillo World Headquarters, and I knew he had a Riviera 12. I’d seen him play it on TV. I drove to the Armadillo after school, around 4-5PM, went to the side stage door and walked in with the case. Pat and the band were sound checking/rehearsing. Pat calmly asked me what was in the case. I said I had a guitar I’d like to show him. I opened the case and handed him the clean sunburst Riviera 12. He strummed it for a moment, then said “Thanks, but I already have one.” I thanked him, and split. He seemed low-key, and nice.
