    Top of the line Alleva Coppolo with the classic nitro 3 tone Sunburst.

    This bass has the extra Tom Barney option which brings in an 18 mm Hipshot bridge and slightly slimmer neck profile (which feels great to me) As a plus though, Jimmy's standard 19mm Vintage Steel bridge with the tiny saddle grooves also retro fits right on the bass and works beautifully with the pups and neck profile ...so if someone wants it to be a 19mm with Jimmy's bridge its no problem.

    Specs:

    -34"
    -Alder body
    -Brazilian board with a one piece maple back of neck
    -Small vintage frets
    -All nitro (neck and body)
    -Tinted neck
    -Propietary AC pups (60s position)
    -Standard propietary AC pre
    -9 lbs

    What can I say... great tone and feel as expected with these basses, and at a great weight.

    The bass is in MINT condition and was from the 2012 NAMM show...its like brand new. Its only been used for recording.
    Comes with the IGig bag in mint condition too.

    $4550 US includes shipping CONUS ( Canada Post) and IGig bag. I'll ship anywhere but outside of CONUS buyer pays shipping.

    *NO TRADES*

    Please pm for any questions,
    Thanks for looking!

    Wow! This is a great bass, I've played this before, and would cost you right around $6k+ brand new, that's if you could even order Brazilian Rosewood anymore.

    Bump for a great bass and an even greater guy!

    I bought Mitch's last LG5 Supreme (a twin to this, minus the 18mm) and it's one of my absolute favorite basses. I have to believe this one is just as amazing.

    Bump for an insane beauty of a bass. I'll hit the LG market soon, but loving my LM5 too much at the moment to jump at this stunner.

    Thanks guys for the support and bumps!

    This bass records beautifully with an open and punchy tone while still retaining good warmth and girth. I've always described Brazilian as a rosewood that seems to retain great definition without losing any warmth in the low end and sweet musical high end.

    PM for any questions

    Cheers! :)
