    TL;DR = Fantastic condition, swapped electronics, sexy.

    $1600 shipped OBO in a better than average gig bag, or HSC. HSC only applies if this sells before my other bass.

    The only trade I am interested in is a 5 string fretless, 34" scale.

    Other than the 3 dings the go through the finish, this bass is in amazing shape (especially a 30 year old bass!).

    Check the photos. Minimal wear on the finger board, the 3 blemishes, and some hard to see buckle rash on the back.

    New EMG pickups
    New EMG BQC preamp w/ mid sweep
    Original electronics and knobs included*
    IMO the new circuit sounds way better, but at least you have the option to go full 1987 mode if you want.

    Otherwise, standard 80's Pedulla magic:
    34" scale
    2 octave neck
    Polyester coating
    Brass nut
    Schaller hardware
    Flame maple with cherry finish
    At or just under 8 pounds

    I have more photos than TB likes per posting, so check the link for the rest:


    *Original electronics are EMG pickups and a passive tone circuit. Yes, this is not normal for a Pedulla. However, it has been verified with Christine at Pedulla that this was an option prior to them using the proprietary Bartolini electronics.

    Please note the hole where a mini toggle used to be. I suppose I could have filled it with a dummy switch, but I just haven't gotten around to it, nor does it bother me. Original electronics have the switch.

    Updated to include a HSC if this sells before my other bass up for sale.
    2 bass enter. 1 bass leave. In a case, anyway.
