    Beautiful bass! I'm curious to know more about what is written on the back of the headstock. I don't know much about Alleva-Coppolo instruments other than they are highly regarded. Is this a custom thing or something he does on all his basses?

    Not always. It's not necessarily custom but something that has been progressing over time. His older basses are blank generally and Jimmy has been adding to what is placed on the back of the headstocks. Anyone can request it blank from what I understand. I have a 2017 RA5 that is blank and it's listed on talkbass right now.

    The phrases vary a little too. Do a search in the Classifieds or on Google and you'll see. Take it at face value or ignore it. It's controversial. Personally i think it's cool while some get offended. If you look a little closer at the picture to right it states "Question Everything". Thanks for your post.
