1967 Epiphone Rivoli II Sunburst Custom Ordered
Here is a very cool Custom Ordered Bass. A seldom seen Rivoli II with dual pickups.

Easily played mono with a stereo adapter but using the Stereo application with two amps you can move mountains with this bass. Sunburst Finish, Mute system intact, Blue Label, Baritone switch, and Bonnet knobs. The bass was also ordered with two original pickguards. Shown in the photo with the Tortoise shell pickguard. Also included is a single ply white pickguard with E accent still intact. A truely "one-off" bass. Comes with its original black yellow lined hardshell case. OHSC $5500. . . .SALE$5000
