Introduced in 1959, the Epiphone EB-232 “Rivoli” bass followed nearly the exact specs as Gibson’s EB-2, with a laminated maple body, a mahogany neck, and banjo style tuners. Most Rivolis ended up in England, providing the low end for such bands as The Small Faces and The Animals. This 1967 piece has two humbucking pick-ups and a baritone switch. This baby has a massive, fat sound and plays like a dream. It’s a short scale, so this bass would be great for smaller players or guitarists looking to venture into bass playing. This piece does have some typical wear and checking, and is also missing its bridge cover and thumb rest, but none of this detracts from playability, which this bass has in spades. Ships in it original hard-shell case.
