That must be it yes.
At the release of my book, Rinus told the audience they were in the studio for the recordings of Moontan. And his Danelectro just wouldn't stay in tune.
They had to go out and try find a shortscale bass that did.
Eventually he found the EB-3.

Don't know for sure if this fits in anywhere.......... On GMA this morning Sheryl Crow performed a song she wrote for the fifth anniversary of Sandy Hook school shooting. The bass player played a 2013 EB............. I didn't see a more obvious place to post it. This thread is likely from before the EB first came out.

It's an EB so certainly fits the bill...!  :mrgreen:

That bass player is Robert P Kearns. The guitarist is Audley Freed.
Both were in Cry Of Love.

Kearns used a Gibson Les Paul Bass (aka Triumph) back in the day.
He has been using an Epi JCS for quite a while with Sheryl Crow.
And when he was with Lynyrd Skynyrd he (sometimes) played a NR Thunderbird.

Those Rotosound tapes do sound great on the Rivoli. It's a shame we haven't seen anything like these original thinline basses since they were discontinued. Maybe if Billy steers enough interest it's way, we'll see a resurgence of mudbucker glory again.
Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

Some day I will once again own a shorty with flats. That Rivoli is mighty nice!

By "thinline", do you mean the thickness of the body?

This is my 70's Univox which has a fairly thin hollow body...short scale, flats, it's all there and every piece is original. That means the pots are crappy and need to be replaced.

As we all know, this could say Epiphone or Lyle on it as easily as it says Univox - they were made in the same place with the same parts.

Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

I don't see any pic.

Thinline is referring to a thin body, usually meaning one with a center block, like the Gibson Es series guitars.

The EB-2 and Rivoli would also be considered thin lines right? I figured it was easier to call them both the same thing instead of making a distinction between one or the other. Does your Univox have electronics that sound like a Rivoli or EB-2 as well?

Yes, the EB-2/Rivoli is a thinline. IIRC The term thinline was coined by Gibson to differentiate them from their guitars with full depth bodies.

The Univox sounds nothing like an EB-2 or Rivoli.

Sorry for the missing pic - not sure what happened.  The Epi's I have seen must be different, because they all had pickups similar to the Univox.

Those must have been Japanese Epiphones then. Not the American made Rivoli.

Sounds like the Epi 5120,

I think the early versions had chrome pickup covers like the Univox.
