Luthier Jimmy Coppolo was always told that "they don't make 'em like they used to," so he builds guitars and basses that compete with and complement the old school. His designs pay homage to the classic Fender basses held so dearly 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.
He produces a very limited number of basses every year, and as such they are rare and unique. It is with this in mind that we are proud to offer these basses whenever we have the chance to obtain them: basses with built-in soul and hand-made feel, crafted in southern California by Jimmy himself.
