Epiphone EA-230

This Epiphone bass looks like the Rivoli, but it is not.
Gibson started to move most Epiphone manufacturing to Japan in the late 1960s. The Rivoli line of basses disappeared then were resurrected in the 1970s as the Japanese made EA-230. Most models of this bass I have seen are in need of neck work. My was no different. The action got high past the 5th or 6th fret.
I sold mine recently after having been the owner for ~17 years.
I bought it at a Music Go Round when I was just starting to play bass at the Hill.
It served me well and was certainly a nice looking instrument.
