    That is one sweet LG5 with a very dark brown, and über sexy, CNL fingerboard upgrade.

    Although I don’t have her anymore, it was only to upgrade to an insane Fodera Custom.

    Dare I post some of my pictures of that tone machine... ?

    Jimmywood = CNL = Brazilian rosewood hybrid (Everything stated above)
    You should ask Jimmy Coppolo.
    He will confirm.

    ...yeah, email him.

    At first he thought it was funny (and probably still does, I know I do) but now, he refer to that limited availability brazilian rosewood hybrid as CNL in honor of the Alleva-Coppolo old, and only, CEO that past away circa 2013. :(

    Hello. I would like to know this wonderful bass is still on sale or not.
    If it is, is it possible to send it to Japan?

    On post #14 of this thread, I've mentioned the lost of Alleva-Coppolo CEO/Head Designer and briefly explained the connection with CNL (Caesar Negro Lignum) fingerboard.

    A few days later, I received a very kind PM from another TB'er asking me if I could provided him with more info regarding that said Head Designer, telling me that he was trying to learn as much as possible about Jimmy and the history of those fabulous instruments.

    Of course, I promptly replied on the matter.

    Since I'm grasping small nuggets of intel almost everyday on AC instruments through other players, owners, collectors, the guys at BSD, and Jimmy's "not quite-up-to-date" website, I decided to share that info that I've grasp in a YouTube clip call "Alleva-Coppolo: Meet Your Maker".

    You're welcome.

    Is this bass still available? If so, can you send this overseas to Japan? Your reply will be appreciated.

    Beautiful bass and I'd love to try one someday but that stuff on the back of the headstock is ridiculous...does he put that on there standard or is it something that has to be specifically ordered? I'm just curious as I've seen this quite a bit and always wondered why he does that?

    If you don't want the "B7 F23" on the back of the headstock, just let him know (or the guys at BSD) and, it won't be there.
