FS : 1993 Flamed Maple Pedulla Thunderbass
with SKB hard shell Case
I know this has been said before , but I never thought I'd be selling this bass! I bought this bass used in like-new condition back in 1995 and it has been my main bass since then. The only reason that I am selling this bass is because I had to buy a 5 string bass because my new band is playing a lot of newer rock songs that require a low 'B' string. I bought a Musicman Bongo 5 HH and unfortunately I am not in a position financially to keep both of them.
This bass is not made of any rare or exotic woods , but it is definitely (hand) made with some beautiful wood (as are all Pedulla basses). This bass plays like a dream and has great tone. It has a very fast neck with nice low action. The bass is all original and is still equipped with the original Bartolini Pick-ups and electronics.
The bass has a few shallow / small dings on the body and head-stock as can be expected of a 20 year old bass , but besides that it is in great condition and has no major flaws whatsoever. The nicks are pictured below in the photos of the bass. I have treated this bass with kid gloves the entire time it has been in my possession.
I replaced the worn-out Pedulla case with a new hard shell SKB case a little over a year ago. I couldn't find a case that matched the body , but I bought some stuffed monkey tails for a kids Halloween costume that fit around the bass and hold it securely in the case without allowing it to move around in the case.
The bass comes with two sets of Pedulla strap pegs (Black and gold) if you want to keep it all original and the tool kit and booklet for making adjustments to the bass..
The bass also comes with $228.00
worth of accessories:
1. SKB Hard Shell Case (Mentioned above) = $142.00
2. A black padded leather Levi strap = $45.00
3. Black Schaller strap locks = $16.00
4. 21' Monster cable (with life-time warranty) specially designed for bass guitar = $25.00
plus half of shipping CONUS. Possible Trade update
Due to recent amplifier problems I don't think it would be a bad idea to have a back-up amp so I may take trade offers (plus cash) for an amplifier in like-new condition.
The amps that I mainly would be interested in are mainly GK (MB Fusion , MB800 , 1001RB-II and the 700RB-II.). Other amps that I may consider in trade would be the the Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 , Markbass LMII or III , Markbass F1 or F500 , GB Shuttle 9.0 , GB SM 9.2 , and the GB Streamliner 600 / 900.
PM me any offers and maybe we can work something out. That said - I do need to re-coop most of the funds from my 5 string purchase so the trade value of any amps offered in trade are going to be based on the 'going rate' here on TB.
I'm not sure of the scale or string spacing , but I'm sure it's standard Pedulla scale and spacing. The spacing can be adjusted slightly with the bridge.
Please feel free to PM me with any questions and I will do my best to answer them for you. As you can tell - I don't know much about 'scale' and 'spacing' , but if you tell me how to measure them I'll do my best to get you an accurate measurement. If you need any more photos of anything I missed please feel free to let me know.
