    for sale here is my pedulla mvp 6 with nordstrand big singles and a nordstrand 3b-5b preamp. the red finsh IS transparent. shes got some dings on her you can see in the pictures. she plays perfect sounds great not very heavy at all. i believe the string spacing is 17 at the bridge. its very bright and punchy and really an all around great bass.comes with the (mint) OHSC and goodies. currently strung with a brand new set of dr high beams i put on yesterday. besides the dings its pretty clean for a 23 year old bass! its got really cool flame maple wings that was a pain trying to get a picture of.

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    pretty good deal considering i paid $1300 for it then did about $500 in upgrades.

    Makes me wish I played 6. I had a 88' MVP 4. Unreal basses and tone. I almost fell over to see how much you want for it! Killer deal especially considering you dont see these often.
    I also watched your video....Nordy or not It has that unmistakable pedulla tone. Those epoxy fretboards are magic.

    I agree the fret board is in a league of its own. It has a unique snap to its tone. I wish i could sit down with a new mvp and a/b test to see the difference

    I'm not a slap/pop guy but I played mine in a metal band(think Mudvayne) finger style. It really added a cool tonal element. Pedulla+Mesa tube amp = unreal tone.

    I also wager you would prefer the old MVP in an A/B . Theres just something special about those old Pedulla's.

    This is one I wish I could just afford to have sitting around. Good luck with the sale.

    The pictures make it look like there is something wrong with the bridge pickup. The pole pieces are off, almost like you swapped the neck and bridge pickup. I could be wrong and the optical illusion of the pic could just be throwing me off.

    your right. the poles line up except for the B and E string on the bridge, it doesnt affect the the tone though as you can see in the video (i play rolled back on the bridge 50%) my luthier has the right bridge p'up and he should be swapping it out any time now. sorry i didnt mention that i was hoping it wouldve been done by now.

    I wanted to add this picture so you can see what it used to look like. Notice the tops of the pickups are almost inline with the b string that was annoying 1359570796524.jpg
