    I don't recon this bass. It's an epiphone I see that but what model exactly??

    I think it's a Rivoli or something like that.

    It could be an original USA Rivoli from the late 60s or one of the recent Korean made reissues. I'd suspect the latter because of the bridge.

    It also looks like the original pickup was replaced with a DiMarzio Model One (gives a less muddy tone).

    Still freaks me out to see Josh Homme behind a drum kit...
