There is a slight chance that my wife-to-be may by me another bass as a wedding present. I'm seriously thinking about adding a semi-hollow body to the arsenal, and I see affordable Epiphone Rivoli's on eBay all the time. I also see less affordable Gibson EB2s. She can probably swing the Epiphone, but the Gibsons are a little out of her price range. I could have an Epiphone now, or wait awhile and pick up a Gibson when we've recovered from the wedding itself. So, a couple of questions. How comparable are the two basses? Also, I notice that the older EB2s have a single neck pickup, while later models have both neck and bridge. There also seem to be two Rivoli models, one with the single pickup and the Rivoli II model withe two. ow important is the second pickup? I'm looking for the classic British Invasion sound, if that helps any. Of course, this may be a moot point, as there's always the possibility I will get a more "romantic" gift instead. Sigh.
