For Sale alleva Coppolo RA5 (ash body)

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by rictrose, Jun 22, 2018.

  1. Price:
    Regrettable sale. Price Drop $3650 USD *Buyer pays shipping and insurance.
    Location: Melbourne Australia - will ship with a mono gig bag.
    Happy to connect via email with 'serious potential buyers' to exchange videos of the bass and answer questions if more info is needed.

    -2012 Namm bass made for the Aguilar Booth
    -Northern Ash body - just under 11lbs
    -Tinted headstock
    -Badass bridge
    -34" Scale
    -19mm String Spacing
    -1 and 7/8" Nut Width
    -All original Coppolo Electronics and homegrown single coil pick-ups
    - Alleva Coppolo 2 band Preamp (active/passive)
    -Poly body and neck - body has "no filler" in the Ash so you can see and feel small outlines of the wood through the finish - very cool - very resonant.
    -B string sound is huge. The tone is authoritative. Like Marcus Miller but with a B string.
    -Comes with Mono gig bag.

    Condition is VERY good - this bass has been played (I am not a collector) but I have babied this bass. Its clean, the truss works well ( I have set it up with nearly zero relief)
    Included in the sale is a 4inch wide Levi's strap and a set of Alleva Coppolo strings (brand new)
    *The nut has 2 small chips in it - but is not cracked and work perfectly. I only mention as full disclosure is essential with such expensive instruments and international sales.

    PLEASE SEND ALL QUESTIONS VIA PM - if ive missed crucial info I will update the thread. Thanks for looking

    Interesting how jimmy tinted the headstock. Fenders of this era had nitro Finnish on the front of the headstock and would age in that manner.
  3. Yeah it’s cool! He does that on a lot of the RA bases he makes - which are meant to be early 70’s copies. Not every RA has the tinted headstock.
