    Up for sale this hard to get bass and very collectible Alleva Coppolo LM5.
    This is the original Tom Barney Prototype #1, it has the smaller body and its very light weight at around 9.3lbs for a LM. Awesome sounding bass. It comes with two bridges 18mm and 19mm (installed). The bass has normal player wear but excellent condition all around. It has 1 AC pickup guard (some scratches) (installed) and 2 after market (look like new). It comes with a Protec bag. I just install a brand new set of d'addario nyxl strings.

    Very cool bass. Is this the same LM that had a white pick guard and sold last weekend?

    What is a Tom Barney Prototype? Is it different from a regular LM? (ie. smaller body?)

    Sorry to hear you're being deployed for a year. I thought you just made it back to Texas after going to a couple of other bases for the last several years. I thought things were stabilizing for you. Anyway, thanks for all you do buddy!

    I had to ask Jimmy what is the difference. He said the nut spacing is a little bit narrow. It just feel perfect. super comfortable.

    Dang! What a bass for the price. Someone needs to get this ASAP, or I’m getting a divorce!

    LOL, I just got an LM5 in the last 2 months so I have some immunity right now. Hope you fare well in divorce court. She may get the bass too...lol! Good luck!

    ETA... I've owned 2 LM5's and they are awesome basses! New owner will not regret the bass...he/ she may regret the divorce, but not the bass!
