Hey everyone. I am putting up my Pedulla Thunderbass. It is a T5 model, made in 1993. This in not a wall flower; it has been played and has normal wear from it. There are some nicks in the finish, the bridge has some scratches, the pickups have some rub marks, etc. There is a filled hole in the lower horn where there used to be an additional strap mount. Besides all of that, I would say that this bass in in great condition. On my personal rating scale, I would say the condition is about an 8 to 9 out of 10.
Everything works properly, and it sounds wonderful. It is super comfortable and easy to play as well. After spending just a couple minutes with it you can see that it is a world class instrument. Pedulla makes some fantastic stuff, and his reputation is well deserved.
The flame maple is really stunning. It is pretty dark, giving the finish a lot of depth. The string spacing is the standard 17.5, with adjustments that you can make in the bridge to make it a little wider or more narrow. Not sure of the weight, but when I get a chance to measure it I will post.
I have this up on eBay for $2600 or so. This model is about $5200 new. I think it is worth every penny of that, but I am flexible on the price. I always consider any trade offers that are made. I imagine that there are several basses out there that I would be interested in. I am not looking for anything in particular, but I like 4, 5, and 6 string basses, fretted or frettless. I don't have any money, so I can't move up, but I would consider trade plus cash deals for lower valued basses. Please PM me with any questions. Here come the pics. Thanks!
