    Hey folks. Reposting as my bills just aren't paying themselves and I generally reach for my narrower-spaced Warwick. I have for sale an awesome Pedulla Thunderbolt 5 that I grabbed here a bit ago. This bass was my dream bass for a while and I had the cash at the time so I jumped on it. This bass didn't disappoint in any way. Growl when you want smooth goodness when you don't. Versatile, highly playable, lightweight. It has it all.

    Bass plays and sounds like a dream. Nordstrand pups and Audere Z mode preamp are a match made in heaven. 19mm spacing, 10 lbs on the bathroom scale, OHSC, and Schaller straplocks.

    I was hoping I wouldn't have to sell, but such is life. $1800 shipped $1650 for a limited time only Got my eye on something. to lower 48, firm. USPS money order preferred, but can do Paypal if I must. No international, sorry. I can be enticed by trades for something on my wish list, but mostly looking for cash. I'd consider:

    Fretless Warwick (5'er preferred) + cash
    Fretless MTD KZ 5 + cash
    Aguilar DB751 + cash

    Run others by me. I (generally) prefer 5'ers, narrower spacing, 34" scale, 24 fret. None of that is written in stone though. Weight is no issue for me at all; my main 'Wick is 11.5 lbs. I can't really add cash to a deal unless it's something I cannot live without. I'm not in a huge hurry to get rid of 'er, but it would be nice to get caught up on some stuff.

    For more pics and a better description, check original posting here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-pedulla-thunderbolt-w-nordstrand-big-splits-audere-pre-977572/

    I zoinked a couple pics from the previous post... my camera is le suck. I can take current pics tho nothing has changed. Also, these are in natural light. The bass is much darker indoors.
