FT FEELER: Alleva-Coppolo LM5 in Amazing Shape. Now with buy option
Not sure I can do this, but I thought I'd reach out anyway given my situation. I'm a pro player that does between 4-7 nights a week, 3-5 hours/night, and unfortunately the weight on my beloved Alleva-Coppolo LM5 (at 11.3 lbs) has gotten to be too much for me. So, I'm looking to see if anyone out there with an LG5 or LG4 might be interested in a trade? Mine is of course Ash/Maple (specs are the same as on the AC site), and throws off the sickest, most versatile tone I've ever heard. It does 70s, it does 60s, it does modern, and it decimates all. Jimmy's pre-amp and pups are, as anyone who has played an AC knows, among the best out there. The feel is insane. If you read Bass Player Magazine, you can see me quoted in the last issue with Marcus on the cover singing its praises, along with 2 pics. And lastly, if you hang here then you know when these babies pop up for sale they usually go within 12 hours of listing - when you play one, you'll understand the reason that they do.
This is mainly a trade feeler, but as a few ACs I would love to get my hands on have popped up on here recently (and the sellers are not open to trades), I thought I'd offer a straight buy price of $4000 shipped CONUS. I'll have the sell price up as long of these other basses are available.
The only, and I mean the ONLY trades I would consider are:
1. Alleva-Coppolo LG5 or LG4. This is really what I'm looking for. If you have one and are considering switching it up to the 70s vibe, definitely reach out.
2. Alleva-Coppolo KBP4. VERY close second.
2. Fodera Emperor Standard or older custom of equal value.
3. Sadowsky NYC5, lighter side at 7-9 lbs. No Metros.
4. Vintage Fender J or P (early to mid 60s, no 70s).
5. Nordy or Lull 4 and 5 strings (either p-basses or J-basses) plus cash from you. Weight is king here - lighter the better.
No 6-strings, nothing over 34" scale - please do not reach out with anything else. I won't even look.
NOTE: I also just got a tort PG and electronics cavity cover, but still have the black as seen in the live pic. I treat my gear well - she lives in a non-smoking home, and doesn't have a ding. Black PG has some swirl, tort is clean and has never left the house. I've been giging an ultra-light P from Denny (masterbass) for the last several weeks on doctor's orders to lighten the load on my shoulder.
Same reason I sold mine BUMP.
Regular 19 mm spacing on this?
Bump for a killer bass.
There is tone in the weight too! :)
Heh - there certainly is.
Last bump to see if anyone on the trade list is looking to switch things up. Had some interesting offers, but nothing quite right yet.
Bump for buy option and additional trade possibilities.
Bump for an awesome Tb'r. This AC is crazy! :)
Traded for another member of the Alleva-Coppolo family.
