1967 Epiphone Rivoli II Sunburst Custom Ordered
Here is a very cool Custom Ordered Bass. A seldom seen Rivoli II with dual pickups. We have seen our fair share of Dual pickup Eb-2 basses over the years but when was the last time you saw a dual pickup Rivoli? The bass was custom ordered with Stereo wiring. 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

When we first opened the case lid on this 1974 Fender Telecaster Bass we were simply amazed. This bass is in extra fine "time capsule" condition.

The Rare Sunburst finish is Vibrant & unfaded over a figured ash body, 1974 dated pickup and pots with untouched solder joints, handrest still intact, and One piece maple neck that is still white. The owner had his initials engraved in small print on the bridge cover. Near Mint condition with just a few pencil tip sized dings on the body. Bass comes with its clean original hardshell case.
