This bass guitar was played by Paul Samwell-Smith from May 1963 to June 18, 1966, Jimmy Page from June 21, 1966 to August 23, 1966 and Chris Dreja from August 25, 1966 - July 7, 1968.

The Rivoli, with a thin-line, semi-hollow body, was introduced in 1959, two years after Epiphone was bought by Chicago Musical Instrument Company (CMI), also the owner of Gibson. The Rivoli went in and out of production during the next decade until it was permanently discontinued in 1970. The Rivoli was Epiphone's most expensive electric bass in 1968, offered at $425.
