Comments Here’s a lovely 1966 Epiphone Rivoli bass. The Rivoli was introduced in 1959 and was extremely similar to Gibson’s EB-2. They were discontinued in the early 1960′s, but production started again in 1964 because these basses were favoured by many of the bands arriving in the US as part of the British Invasion. The short scale and light weight make them very comfortable to play, and it most definitely produces bottom end.
