    i have a 1987 pedulla buzz 4 string fretless bass.
    i purchased it early this year in canada at Long and Mcquade in Vancouver.
    i bought it because they rarely come up in these parts.
    haven`t played it much since because of all my other toys i have recently acquired;)
    i really do not want to sell it but something came up for sale that i want just a smidgeon more.
    i reserve the right to pull this down if i come to my senses. just want to see if there is any interest in the next few days.
    i haven`t gigged with it, haven`t changed the strings, haven`t adjusted it.
    it is perfectly set up for maximum mwah so i left it alone.
    this bass is bone stock with bartolini PU`s and preamp. has a schaller bridge.
    (i contacted pedulla before i bought it because i wanted to buy a stock, unmodified bass and he confirmed it)
    gold hardware.
    24 fret (lines)
    34 inch scale
    brass nut.
    8 pounds even
    has AAA maple flame top

    this is a players bass-it has some dings and some of the typical flaking in the clear on the back that seem to be common on pedullas. luckily the bass shows very well due to the colour; the wear and tear will not photograph easily.
    the good news is that most of the wear and imperfections are on the body and not on the neck. it is a bass you wouldn`t worry about at a gig if you buckle rashed it
    the fretboard is in good condition with a little wear from the rounds and the polyester coating has got much mileage in it yet.
    the bottom line is this bass plays and sounds great and that is the important thing.
    these basses are close to $5000 new. many pedulla owners (including myself) think these are king of the fretlesses.
    i need to get $1450 and i will ship lower 48.
    comes with a generic gigbag.
    i would prefer a local sale but i can easily cross the U.S. border and ship from Bellingham and save an american buyer some coin.

    I will be in Vancouver on Wednesday for vacation but if I spent $1500 on a bass, my wife will kill me. Suicide bump.
