  1. Selling my beautiful and mint KBP5 Custom with the rare PJ config. Top condition ! Unfortunately I am and will always be a JB player, that couldn't change even this wonderful PJ. Alder Body Very nice CNL Board (not available anymore, that's a blend between Brazilian and Amazon Rosewood, Jimmy used this for Classic Supremes, it is NOT banned by CITES, as far as I know) Original Alleva Pickups and Elektrics (passive VVT) 34", 19mm Spacing Really cool "Highlander Greenburst Metallic" with Matching Headstock, Thin Skin Poly First owner gave me some photos from the manufacturing process and from the neck pocket. Built 2014 Weight 4190g Comes in a Gator Lightcase No dings or blemishes ! no playing wear, even not on the frets. Everything works as it should. Low action ! Strung with brandnew DR fat Beams. The bass sounds killer with Flats too. Asking 4.200 EUR plus shipping from Duesseldorf / Germany. Tradewise interested ONLY in: Alleva Coppolo LM5/LM4 Deluxe Ken Smith Elite 4/5/6 F Bass AC6 mit Lines+ cash either way if needed. Nothing else please.
  2. The relic work from John has been the best of the world and of all times.
  3. I am offering my Alleva Coppolo Precision clone. This is the Classic series with Nitro finish and nice Rosewood board. It is from his first years and therefore still with the comfortable body shaping. Same neck dimensions like my 61 PB. Some player wear but nothing serious. Everything works perfect. Plays wonderful with only 3730 g weight. Comes with a fresh setup and new strings and an original Alleva gigbag. Asking 3.700 Euro for it plus shipping from Duesseldorf/Germany. Only trade options: Alleva Coppolo LM5 MTD 534-21 F Bass with a nice top Ken Smith Neckthrough
  4. With tears in my heart I am offering this exceptional bass because I am not able to manage 7 strings properly. I haven't seen any MD7 in the past 20 years here in Europe - and these basses are not offered anymore according to the website of Ken. Even more rare is the 7-string with the 7pc neck option together with the 5A Flamed Maple Top. This particular bass is shown as a Flamed Maple showcase on Kens website since decades. I imported the bass from the original US owner, who kept this bass in the case since he bought it. It is ABSOLUTELY MINT. The action is super low, the sound is incredible deep and crystal clear, yet providing that organic snap exclusive to Smiths . Everything works fine. Asking 7.500 Euro plus shipping from Duesseldorf/Germany. I could be intersted in trades but only at reasonable trade values and against these brands: Ken Smith Elite Fodera Neckthrough Alleva Coppolo F Bass Fenders <1966 + cash either way if necessary. Please do not offer anything else. Thanks.
  5. No, but I would use it at rehearsal and studio work - and that happens much more often than gigging ...
  6. Incredible ! If I would not already own a wonderful Fiesta slab this would be mine in a heartbeat ! These custom colours use to show up only in vintage shops these days, if at all. And then with a price tag reflecting their margin and expertise. This is an opportunity to get a wonderful, super rare and nearly complete (!) collector's package (case, covers, mutes !), well documented by the trustful seller and the specialists at Olivis's. As far as I can see, everything is absolutely legit. It's a lot of money, but I cannot believe that the value will decrease. Good luck Phil.
  7. Thanks Goran ! The pics even do not justice that bass. The colours in natural are much more shining and the wooden grain is deeper and has more contrast. I will tray to get better ones these days.
  8. Selling my very unique Alleva Coppolo LG5 Custom. It is like new (besides one small chipped out ding mentioned below) and has the following spec: Spalted Alder Body - very lightweight, yet quite responsive, this is Jimmys most expensive body wood choice Amberburst Finish - looks less orange than in the pics Pale Moon Ebony board with binding (this is a Limited upgrade) MOP dots 34" 19mm spacing at bridge Jimmys proprietary pickups and electronics, pickups in 60s positions Built 2019, Weighs 3,9 kg (!) I bought it in new condition, but I managed to chip out a small piece of finish at the back of the neck joint - I will add pics later. Besides that the bass is absolutely like new - even the transparent foil is still on the back cover plate. The sound is typical Alleva-like, so it tends towards the classical early Fender timbre - although the Pale Moon Ebony board adds some snap and opens the upper registers. Asking 4.900 EUR (4500 GBP) plus shipping from Duesseldorf / Germany. IMG_4339.HEIC IMG_4343.HEIC
  9. I know this bass very well 🙂 and I can say it is extremely responsive and has a huge B. A great instrument for everyone who has something to tell with his/her fingers. Willem is a great seller and this bass would put you far above 16K Euro retail price due to the massive amount of upgrades it has.
  10. Selling my Fodera Imperial 5 with a breathtaking Chestnut Burl Top Specs: Alder Body Chestnut Burl Top Brazilian Rosewood Board 35’, 19mm Spacing Weight 4,68 kg Seymour Duncan Dual Coils Fodera Pope Preamp Custom Ebony Ramp Built around 2000 Fodera Teardrop Case The bass has been played and has some small dings here and there, nothing serious. These blemishes have been reflected in the price. Everything works as expected. The weight is quite moderate for a Imperial. ON HOLD
  11. Selling my very unique Alleva Coppolo LG5 Custom. It is like new (besides one small chipped out ding mentioned below) and has the following spec: Spalted Alder Body - very lightweight, yet quite responsive, this is Jimmys most expensive body wood choice Amberburst Finish - looks less orange than in the pics Very nice Macassar Ebony board with binding MOP dots 34" 19mm spacing at bridge Jimmys proprietary pickups and electronics, pickups in 60s positions Built 2019, Weighs 3,9 kg (!) I bought it in new condition, but just today I managed to chip out a small piece of finish at the back of the neck joint - I will add a picture later. Besides that the bass is absolutely like new - even the transparent foil is still on the back cover plate. The sound is typical Alleva-like, so it tends towards the classical early Fender timbre - although the Ebony board adds some snap and opens the upper registers - if desired. I personally prefer the vintage models, but for players with a slightly more flexible and modern demand this Alleva would be a great find. Asking 4.900 EUR (4500 GBP) plus shipping, trade value is 5.400 EUR. Trades considered: Alleva Coppolo LM5/LM4, Ken Smith BSR Elite, Fenders until 1973, F Basses with nice tops, Fodera Elite 34" or less, LeFay Remigton Steele 6, Mattisson. .
