Epiphone Rivoli Budget Alternative

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am dreaming of an Epiphone Rivoli in sunburst but money is in laughably short supply. Does anyone know of a budget alternative? Must be available in sunburst. 
 

Really appreciate any help

Jon

What sort of budget are you looking at? And does it have to be the same sort of shape? 

I haven't played them, but have heard good things about the Hofner Ignition series.

Budget is as low as possible I’m afraid and yes it does have to be the same shape. I will look at the Hogner now, thanks for taking the time to reply, I am very grateful

It’s the wrong colour and pickup arrangement is different but it is the best I have seen in my searches too. Thanks 👍

They do black, sunburst etc

I used to own an Italia Torino bass that will get you close soundwise (semi-hollow with a big, bold mudbucker in the neck position) but it has a single cutaway bodyshape and an added bridge pickup (a guitar humbucker in a closed chrome cover).

I've been looking for an age to get one.

I managed to buy a budget one second hand that turned out to be a gibson copy except its long scale for not a lot of money. Im in the process of gradually getting it fixed up but the longscale neck makes it not so nice to play.

I live in hope of a new rivoli to  be released.

Revelation guitars have a good rep I believe, there is this model that caught my eye but havent seen one in the flesh.

These crop up as b-stock...

I owned one of these for all of about a week, I donated it to cat rescue after that, it was supposed to have been a B stock instrument which had apparently already been sold so they sent me a brand new one....given how bad the new one was I dread to think how poor the B stock instrument would have been! It arrived with the bridge pickup not wired up, an action you could through a blanket over and go camping! I wired it correctly set it up as best as could be done with it and got rid of it...for me this was a classic case of you get what you pay for!

Thanks for that, I have just dropped a message to him. What I would really love is the Aria Tab bass
