I love The Animals and Chas's bass playing and tone. I have a '66 Gibson EB-2 and reissue Epi Rivoli. They sound and play great and I love playing the intro to "We Gotta Get Outta This Place". Chas's Rivoli was on ebay about a year ago, went relatively cheap.
Also gotta love Paul Samwell-Smith, especially when he'd shoot up the neck during the "rave-ups".

'It's my Life' was a seminal point in a young bass players life many many many years ago. I loved that line and still do to this day, what a sound he had. ba boom, ba boom, ba boom ba boom ba boom, haha! That has to be one of the hookiest bass lines in all of rock n roll.

Carrie, that Epiphone Rivoli was offered on ebay exactly a year ago. I was at the Dallas Guitar show and a friend of mine showed me several photos in the newest Hendrix book of Chas Chandler playing an EB2. The bass came with a LOA from Chas stating he used it in '64 to record and to play live. Obviously, I was perplexed and it scared me off the bidding, as I was prepared to go the distance and really pay a lot! It was actually relieving as I had fretted over it and made my friends miserable with my plight.

Fast Forward --

A few months ago I saw an old cheesy film (pre-videos) of The Animals walking through an old house singing "House" and there was Chas playing the Rivoli. Ooooohhhhhh!

It still hurts.

I wonder what it went for, Ron? My guess is that he might have got a pretty good trade for it with Greg's arsenal of Hofners.

Ron, Lucky Man (GF). I take it you know the buyer & the seller Ratso?
We watched the auction. What a piece of History! I would almost be afraid to play it.

I'll have to get out more often. I have never noticed a Hofner bass with a blue finish before.

Yeah, Peter. They are a limited issue of some kind. I don't remember from when, they just popped up.

I think the blue ones are fairly recent, I've seen them before and I don't know my Hofners at all, evidently Greg does though, haha!
I've seen Chas with cherry EB-2's more often though than with Rivoli's. EB-2's were later in his career I would imagine, I owned one, they're really nice basses.

Very nice, Ronn! I've seen your site before. I thought you are left handed?
