Since Epiphone is no longer making the much-loved Rivoli bass, Dillion has stepped in to fill the void. Here's one currently on eBay. I own two Dillions and have played several others (though not this model); and the quality is superb.

They do look good and at a price that doesn't break the bank.

I might have to consider buying that. I had an original many years ago. Sadly I let it go. 25 years ago the original Rivoli didn't command the prices they're getting today.

Looks like only red is available currently, but they do make a left-handed model. Also, the specs on Dillion's website says it's a full-length 34" scale, where I believe the original Rivoli's were 30".
