    I have started looking for an Epipiphone Rivoli, and ran into the 1 and 2 pu models..I know the difference, but does anyone know when they started making the 2 pickup version, and when they stopped? also, did they stop making the one pickup when the 2 pickup came out? From this list I see people still picking these up as NOS basses as little as a year ago. is it just a matter of finding a mom and pop that couldn't sell it?

    Also..opinions on the original vs the reissue. I occasionally run into a post here that states the humbucker is a "single coil"..it IS a humbucker like the original, right?

    I sure would like to see an elitist rivoli/EB2D.
