    Thought I would never sell this one, especially now that Mike Pedulla has retired. But honestly it isn't being played out for fear of damaging it.

    Gorgeous high grade tiger maple on this one with in beautiful high gloss cherry multiburst. This one also has the very rare dual humbuckers instead of the common P/J config. Everything is original. I love the black hardware which goes so well with the dark grain amidst the cherryburst.

    It is probably as "like new" as you are going to find. Hardly a mark on it. The slightest bit of string marks on the glasslike gloss ebony fingerboard. I've looked this one over carefully and if I missed anything it would be minor.

    These Pedulla's are the epitome of fretless tone. So amazing. Alas, I'm just not playing fretless much these days. These are effortless to play though. A true beauty of an instrument and incredible find.

    • Original custom wound for Mike Pedulla Bartolini humbuckers
    • Original custom Bartolini preamp with mid boost circuit
    • Original hardshell case in excellent condition

    Now for the eye candy. :D There are plenty here for your enjoyment.

    Any oddities you see in the photos are likely just glare/reflection against the high gloss. Feel free to send me questions.

    Wow, that's worth a big Like.
    1. Nut width?
    2. String saddle spacing at the bridge?
    3. Neck width at the 24th fret marker?
    4. Weight?
    5. Serial or confirmed year manufactured?
    Thanks!

    These are the be-all end-all of fretlesses as far as I am concerned. Good luck!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I used to have this exact color scheme but mine had the PJ config and the gold hardware. I absolutely love the black hardware and Bartolini humbuckers on this one. Good luck with the sale!!!
