Man, at GC recently, and they had this beautiful Pedulla (I'm pretty sure about the model) Thunderbolt 5er with the AA top in a eye candy dark quilted teal color, with gold hardware, a dark wood neck (I don't think it was RW) and the optional 19mm string spacing. Oh man. I'm gonna die. It played like buttah. I mean, this is THE bass. It's the only one that has ever grabbed me like this one. I played it for like an hour through an SWR Silverado, and I'll tell you what, this thing was the bad boy I've been looking for since I decided to get a new bass. the Ibanez BTB? The MM Stringray 5? Phhht! Out the door. This thing had the tone, the feel, and the sound. With the amp EQ flat, I dialed in about as many tones as I could dream of (Personal opinion here). This is my new bass, bar none. It's not to boomy, not to thin. Just right, a thick bass sound. Hit that Thunderguts switch, BAM kick that bad boy into high gear. Thing had some Barts in it, and I'm telling you, with a ~$2000 price tag...I'm gonna have to start saving right after the new rig. Sweet Jebus. This thing is my new baby. Any of yall dig these Pedullas?
