    This one’s in great condition. A great example of Jimmys fine work. The finish is absolutely eye popping in person. From what I understand this is the only RA-5 made with fingerboard dots instead of the usual blocks. Nice weight. The neck feels amazing. Comes in a mint Alleva-Coppolo gig bag. This is an amazing deal. It’s got a couple of tiny dings on the side. The front and back are prefect. The neck and frets in perfect condition.

    Great price Kevin! How does the tone compare to your LM?

    It's a little more polite, a little smoother. It's certainly got the brightness from the maple but it's not as bright as the LM. Lot's of punch. The bridge pickup is sweeeet. I would love to hang on to it....but you know how that goes. :)
