Alleva-Coppolo LM5 Deluxe Limited Edition. This instrument is as unique as Limited Editions get. Featuring a rare Flame Northeastern Ash body and Flame Maple neck, white binding, and perloid blocks. You will not find another 4 or 5-string Alleva-Coppolo with this combination. The bass is heavy and built with 70's tone in mind. Coming in at 12.2 lbs this jazz monster will deliver a solid fundamental note every time and on every single fret. Jimmy only made two basses with flame ash bodies, and the other was a six-string build.
Like all Alleva-Coppolo LM's in our lineup, this bass comes with proprietary period correct custom wound single-coil pickups. But unlike a 70's jazz bass, Alleva-Coppolo incorporates a low B string and a proprietary active preamp with a push-pull switch. The tone knob works in both passive and active mode, giving you the most versatile preamp combination. You'll be able to dial in anything from vintage to a modern sound, to fit whichever genre you need.
