    I love them both, but my wife says one of them has to go, so my loss is your gain. :bawl:

    Here is what I have:

    -2007 Olympic White Alleva Coppolo LG Standard
    -Old Growth Alder Body
    -Old Growth Maple Neck
    -Old Honduran Rosewood Board (ala Paul Turner of Jamiroquai) pricey upgrade
    -Poly Finish but sounds really good (if there is a difference I can't tell between nitro and poly)
    -Tortoise Shell Pickguard
    -Weight - don't have an official scale but between 9.25-9.5
    -Built in NYC and was one of the first 75 made
    -Condition 8.5 of 10 (couple of paint chips but just for character)

    Great bass feels great, vintage mojo, and incredible tone. Sounds great with nickels or stainless strings. The Honduran Rosewood Board, to my ear, sounds slightly more focused than an LG with indian rosewood. Some might say the tone sits inbetween an LM and LG but definitely retains all of the LG mojo I love. Great bass and very is the perfect weight.

    Next up

    -2008 Black Alleva Coppolo LG Classic
    -Old Growth Alder Body
    -Old Growth Maple Neck
    -Old Indian Rosewood Board
    -Nitro Finish
    -Tortoise Shell Pickguard
    -Weight - don't have an official scale but right at 10lbs
    -Built in NYC and California so this is a transition bass, but finished long before Jimmy used the CNC machine.
    -Condition 9.75 of 10 Very close to mint.

    Great bass again. Everything you heard about the AC LG5 is true. This bass is a tone monster.

    $3850 delivered in CONUS (Email me about paypal options)

    Due to the reason for sale, not interested in any trades (except maybe cash, gold, or silver). :D First one that sells takes the other one off the market. Don't want to part with either one, but the next owner will be very happy with either bass.

    PM me with questions or additional photo request.

    Would I sound like I was playing for Jamiroquai if I had that white one?

    david3821 better get here before Wednesday because the ship is leaving mid next week if all goes as plans. I will still have one AC so we still need to hook up.

    SteveC, unless you are Paul Turner, this bass can't work miracles, but it will get you close.

    Thanks.
