Alleva-Coppolo LG5 Standard Shelby Blue W/ Competition Stripe W/ Pro-Tec Bag
Luthier Jimmy Coppolo was always told that "they don't make 'em like they used to," so he builds his guitars and basses to compete with and complement the old school. His designs pay homage to the classic basses coveted by those who know them. Cutting his own bodies and magnets, and winding and wiring his own custom pickups and preamps, he infuses his own artistry, creativity, and technical range into instruments capable of modern feats while retaining the look, feel, sound, quality, and spirit of the classics.
The LG5 standard in Shelby blue with the white racing stripes is what we call a T.B. model which basically signifies 18mm string to string at the bridge spacing and a closer spaced nut.
Body Wood: Western Red Alder
Neck Wood: Sugar Maple
Fingerboard: Old Cut Old Growth Indonesian Rosewood
Alleva-Coppolo produces a limited number of basses every year. It is with this in mind that we are proud to offer Alleva Coppolo basses with built-in soul and hand-made feel, crafted in southern California by Jimmy himself.
