    That's the color my '99 wants to be! Beautiful!! My body is pristine but the fingerboard is getting torn up because I can't put the thing down. I love these basses because they are perfect.
    Yours looks like a AAA flame bass. Very nice.

    Thank you mtb777! This was sold to me as a AAAAA flame, the pictures don't do it justice.

    These are in my opinion the best fretless basses ever made. There is something about them that is truly mind blowing. I still have mine and I love it. It will be one of the last basses I ever get rid of.

    Ahhhhhh......even better. I'm looking at it on an iPhone so yeah. I knew it was at least a AAA. That makes it an even better deal! Michael don't make no junk, that's for sure. Haha.

    That's a good deal. Pretty sure that is just a AA though. As I have owned about 10 Pedullas over the years. the AAAA and AAAAA are pretty easy to distinguish at the quilt/flame on them are extremely amazing.

    Either way, you can't beat these for under $2000!! Major deal.

    Someone had responded to the ad before you. I am waiting to hear back, I will contact you shortly if they don't respond. I don't know how to do this more fairly. Thanks

    It should say it on the back of the control cavity cover along with the year and maybe other info. When I bought mine used, I truly thought it was very new and was shocked and surprised it was a 1999! I never asked what year it was. It looked that new. Same electronics as new, same great workmanship as well.

    mtb777,
    Thanks for the heads up. There isn't any information on the inside of the control cavity cover.
