    For sale: Alleva Coppolo LG Custom Classic.

    Specs on the AC website. From the previous owner:

    Jimmy told me that it is actually "Custom" Classic due to its finish:
    "...With the custom blue stripe and lacquer (Nitro) in a matte finish (which was real hard for me to do) I'd charge $4895.00. ..."


    Pictured, you can see it has a "non installed" tort pickguard. One photo shows the guard.

    I do not know the weight. It's not heavy.


    The only things about the bass you must know upfront: Jimmy did not do an A+ job on the finish. The nitro (forgive me, I'm guessing/assuming here) wasn't cured correctly and is therefore still sensitive. There's 2 spots on the body where the paint smudged--one from a gig bag, the other from a guitar stand. I'll get those photos later.
    I did also notice that the pickup cavity is so tight that it's difficult to move the pickup height. Thankfully, Jimmy set it at the proper height...so there's not much of a reason to move the pup height. It looks like someone tried to move the pup covers around and there's some slight marring. I'll photo that as well.

    Otherwise, the bass is pretty amazing. I'll ship it with the original protec contego bag still in great shape, tag still attached.

    $3,750 shipped. Paypal is cool.

    Trades not likely accepted, I am happy with my collection and am not interested in most boutique basses in this price range. I like Lakland USA, though...

    The blue stripe is by far one of the most attractive finish details I've ever seen!!! Bump.

    Two offers on the table. Looking for asking price cash offers to seal the deal ... If not, one of these other fellas is getting a mighty fine bass :)
