I've always wanted a Gibson Eb-2 or Epi Rivoli (original) but they seem pretty rare in the UK. The question is what is the Rivoli (i have the opportunity to purchase one) reissue like compared to the Epi Jack Casady? I know the JC is longer scale compared to the Rivoli but which is the better bass? Which has the hottest output? As I'd be using it as a second bass and ideally i'd just want to unplug my ric 4003 without changing any settings. The positives for the Rivoli is the firstly the colour (sunburst) and 30" scale so great mid-ranges? The positives for the JC is 34" and impedence changer? I'd ideally be using it for indie/rock music with BRMC being one of my major influences on my sound/tone.
