  1. Uhm.. where? I don't see this at the bottom of the page? Apple/browser issue or am I just braindead?
  2. Considering selling both my lovely Alleva's. I am lucky to have owned and still own many great basses so the slightest and most of all personal preferences make a difference: I concluded I like a flatter radius better. Olympic white (nitro) Alleva Coppolo LG5 Classic Supreme Limited Edition built in 2010 for the 2011 Namm Show, alder body, one piece maple neck, exotic rosewood board (quite likely Jimmy-wood) with dots and bindings, matching headstock, 21 frets, 34", 60's spaced homegrown AC Pickups and pre amp, 10" radius, +/-19mm spacing AC vintage bridge, Hipshot ultra light tuners, 4,6 kgs. Some signs of playing wear and some dents at the bottomside of the body. Has a thin shim in the pocket: can do without but I like it better this way. Plays great with low action and mighty fat/low mid focused sound with more brightness than one may expect from 'normal' rosewood: 'rich overtones' as one may call it. This is quite as vibrant as a great Fender early '60s 5 string Jazz Bass would be, and then some. Trades considered with Alleva Coppolo 5 strings with 12" radius at least, Stenback 4 or 5, Sadowsky 5 string Jazz Bass maple board early unchambered series (90's produced), Ken Smith 6 string (19mm spacing), early sixties Fender Jazz Bass or Precision bass, Steinberger XL5 wide bridge, Fodera 5/6 string maple board/19mm.
  3. Considering selling both my lovely Alleva's. I am lucky to have owned and still own many great basses so the slightest and most of all personal preferences make a difference: I concluded I like a flatter radius better. Ice Blue metallic (nitro) Alleva Coppolo RA5, 2016, alder body, one piece maple neck with skunk stripe (poly finish), maple board with black blocks and bindings, vintage tint nitro headstock, 21 frets, 34", 70's spaced homegrown AC Pickups and pre amp, 10" radius, +/-19mm spacing AC vintage bridge, Hipshot ultra light tuners, 4,2kgs. Very good condition including nice nitro lacquer checking as I tried to capture in one picture. Due to alder body, the electronics and not the least, the specials building qualities of Jimmy, this bass has a harshless maple brightness with a lot of low mid/bottom. This is Marcus Miller, Geddy Lee and not the least: the best of you! €4500. Global shipping at costs provided well packed as desired. Trades considered with Alleva Coppolo 5 strings with 12" radius at least, Stenback 4 or 5, Sadowsky 5 string Jazz Bass maple board early unchambered series (90's produced), Ken Smith 6 string (19mm spacing), early sixties Fender Jazz Bass or Precision bass, Steinberger XL5 wide bridge, Fodera 5/6 maple board 19mm.
  4. I’m quite confident there are 99 luftballons in the case.
  5. Great seller & bass: grab it while you can!
  6. Yes, surprises me too. But the seller isn't reacting as it seems.. this doesn't help either... or it is sold already...
  7. Steinberger XL2 from 1987. Playing wear but technically fully functional and complete with 'flipper' and battery compartment cover. No case. Plays like a dream sounds like a.. Steinberger, which is much closer to a Jazz Bass, Precision Bass and Music Man Stringray than you might think. This is the real 'composite' deal. Substantially different than the later 'Hohner B2's' and 'Spirits' (with no doubt much much much better: these original Steinbergers are fantastic.) Shipping well packed anywhere at costs.
  8. Ah… that was supposed to be Michael Manson!! My bad!!!
  9. Absolutely. One of the best. Guys like Sharay Reed and Michael Manring can't be wrong...
  10. Perfect 1996 Fender Jazz Bass Deluxe completely original with John Suhr pickups and pre amp, hard shell case and case candy. This is the bass that Sharay Reed and Michael Manson (a.o. George Duke) made furore with. No isues: everything works 100%. Very little fret or playing wear Scale 34" String spacing +/- 18mm (adjustable) Weight 4250gram (kitchen scale) Bodywood Ash Fretboardwood Morado (I think)
  11. ..it's a long weight for sure! 😉
  12. It is a satin finish so I think it is a satin series
