    SOLD.

    Alleva-Coppolo LM5 Deluxe Limited Edition NAMM 2011

    Specs:
    1-piece Ash Body - This is the Limited Edition part, there are only 10 basses made on this run from the same log - there are none left for new orders.
    Trans White Gloss Poly finish
    1-piece Maple Neck/Fingerboard in Clear Gloss Poly finish, front and back (Slightly slimmer neck profile than "standard," It's a fast playing neck)
    Pearl Block Inlays and White Fingerboard Binding
    Laser-Etched A-C Logo with Limited Edition designation
    Alleva-Coppolo Homemade Pickups in 70's position
    Alleva-Coppolo Homemade 2-Band Preamp
    Black Pickguard
    Hipshot Ultra-Lite Tuners
    BadAss V Bridge
    *Please note, the D-Tuner and Straplock buttons are not included in the sale, those are being transferred to my incoming A-C)

    Case or gig bag included (I currently use my iGig which I am not willing to give up so I will purchase a case or bag prior to shipping)

    Weight: 9.5 lbs. (Probably the one of the lightest of any late model LM's - try ordering one this light and see what Jimmy says, LOL)

    Condition: Excellent - very very minor surface scuffs on the paint but nothing noticeable due to the finish... There is a little bit of super glue residue on the back as Jimmy forgot to clean off his work bench but most of it is gone. Pickguard has the usual scuffs in the "slap spot." Other than that everything is like new. *Christian symbol is just a sticker and will cleanly peel off.

    Save the 2 year wait and grab this rare bass! These were sold for over $5k at NAMM 2011.

    Thanks Joel!

    The only reason this one is going is because I have another coming! :bassist:

    Big bump for a great guy and bass.

    This bass is open and punchy and looks even better in person...nice comfortable weight too.

    Good luck with the sale Yohann, it should go pretty fast!

    Thank you Mitch, my friend. I appreciate the kind words.

    A-C's seem to go really fast around here... This one is the highest end of the LM line... Well, I guess unless you go Custom with like a wild finish or something.

    Final price drop to $4200 shipped in ConUS... I will leave this here for most of this week but afterwards it'll be traded back in to Jimmy for my new order... You might be able to time it and buy from him but expect to pay a little more.

  9. I have played this bass and this is one of the best tone monster LM5 IMHO and of course YCBASS is great TB'er. Good luck on the sale.:hyper:

    Another bump... Has TB run out of A-C love?

    I think some of the buying has slowed down in general -- not specific to AC. This will move it just may take longer than it would have a few months ago.

    Heck, I would have bought it the day you listed it if it were three months ago!

    I think you're right Joel...

    Friday bump... Somebody out there wants a hot A-C.

    Best time to post listing are usually around November and April since those are the holidays and tax seasons. Just be patient and keeping rocking with it until then :bassist:
