I am posting to see if it is just me or do others have the same thoughts. I checked out some Alleva Coppolo basses on line and I am amazed at the cost of copies of Fenders with a different headstock design go for ridiculous prices (there are quite a few others). If one spends that kind of dough for a custom why would one buy a copy? Myself and others build customs that are exactly that, unique, one of a kind with just the electronics and specs the buyer desires. It irradiates me that they advertise these as their creations. End of rant.
