I just picked this bass up here on TB about a week ago. The reason that I am thinking of selling it so soon is because a day after I sent out the check for the bass my fiancee got really sick and had to go to the walk in clinic. They ran a bunch of tests on her and it turned out that she had pneumonia. Between the doctor visit , all the tests , and her prescription the bill came close to $1000.00. Since we aren't married - she isn't covered under my insurance and she is a stay at home mother raising our two children so she has no income. That being said I am the one who pays all of our bills and I need to sell this bass to pay this bill off. I dropped the bass off at the music store that works on my basses this past Saturday , but my bass tech had the day off. I'm going to have him give the bass a once over and adjust the neck if he thinks it needs it. I am also going to see if he can remove the drop tuner that someone had put on the bass a while back. I will include the drop tuner if you want it - I personally see no need for a drop tuner on a "B" string. The bass does have a few dings as would be expected for a bass of this age and a little spot of finish is worn off of the middle of the back. This bass is definitely a beauty and plays and sounds fantastic - Truly a Vintage Pedulla! I paid $1300.00 for this bass a week ago. I am asking $1100.00 shipped CONUS. Payment methods = Paypal (Prefered) or Bank Check.
