Finished. I've found her... She came by UPS today, from TB'er Mark Clay for a fantastic price. She's a Pedulla Pentabuzz P/J, with a 2-band switchable active preamp. The gloss neck finish has been removed, and she's got some dings (which is why I could afford her) I dragged her to rehersal today just after she arrived, and within about 2 minutes I knew she was the one. Did I mention I have never spent any time with a 5-string before? Yeah.... so easy to play! My intonation was fantastic, and I just flew around the 'board. What a bass! Thick, rich, gooey fretless fatness!
