    Alleva Coppolo 6571 ("Hippy Dippy Trippy") P bass

    I recently had it professionally set up with TI flats. One of the most comfortable 5-string necks I've ever played with an amazingly responsive low B. I've apparently become a die-hard 4-string player, so.....

    Will ship in a hardshell Alleva-Coppolo "Pimp Case."

    The details!

    - 34" scale
    - 1 7/8" nut width
    - 10" fingerboard radius
    - 19mm bridge spacing
    - Alder body
    - Maple neck
    - Rosewood fingerboard

    I don't have any verification on this, but I think this must have been one of the first basses Jimmy did the laser engraved headstock on. It says "Art Test" on the back of the headstock, so I'm making an assumption. Kinda cool.

    [DEL]$2350 shipped, obo[/DEL] SOLD

    Seems to be about 9 lbs, calculated via the "hop on the scale with the bass, and hop on the scale without he bass, and subtract the difference" method.

    Unfortunately, it'll take me a few days to get postal scale accuracy (sorry....).

    It'd have to be really good. My wife isn't too keen on trades; and I'm not either unless it's for really cool vintage, hard to find, or rare stuff. Even then.....




    ALSO, in case anyone didn't notice: the price dropped $100. I'm not in any rush to sell or accept lowball offers. In hindsight, my valuation may have been a little high off the bat. I feel like $2350 is great price, and hopefully you do to.

    What is the difference between this model and LM's,LG's and their more expensive P basses? Sorry to derail the thread.

    They're basically a no-frills, no-options model with a hand-rubbed water-based finish. Same build quality and, from what I can tell, specs - just a "one size fits all" sort of deal.

    They all have old-growth or specialty rosewood boards too. :bassist:

    It's a 6571, Hippy Dippy Trippy. In theory, a KBP5 without a finish. I think this is actually my favorite AC neck I've played.

    The 6571s are the "hippie dippy trippy" model. They have an oil or water (I can't remember exactly) finish and are passive. The same awesome woods are used and thy are still all built by Jimmy the same way he builds everything else. I have a similar version of his old fashioned and it is incredible. I love the way the wood of the body feels.
    Awesome way to get the AC tone and feel without dropping tons of cash.
