    Hi, I was hoping someone could provide me with the specs for Pedulla 6-string bridge spacing (both string-to-string and total would be helpful).

    Also does anybody know if their 6ers have always had this spacing? Only reason I ask is some of their info from the 90s says both 5s and 6s are available with 17/19 mm spacing, now the info on the Pedulla site seems to say the 6s are narrower spaced.

    Additionally, what's the "feel" of a Pedulla 6 neck? I've found Roscoe and Modulus 6 necks to be just too wide. I prefer the skinnier Ibanez kind of profile, F-Bass and Cirrus are also kind of in between. My Pedulla Rapture J-2000-5 is the best neck I've ever felt and I'm hoping the Pedulla 6 isn't way bigger.

    I will try to contact Pedulla after the weekend but there's a bass I'm considering getting before then. Thanks for any info!

    The Pedulla 6 neck will feel pretty similar to your Rapture. The neck is the thing that I miss most about the Rapture J2 fiver that I used to have.:(

    Pedulla did offer 19mm spacing as an option for several years. If they have stopped offering it, that is news to me.

    Thanks, Embellisher. A beautiful cherry-top ThunderBolt 6 is on its way to me. I'm not too big on buying basses without playing them first, but the price was too good to pass up and I really dig every Pedulla I've tried.
