    Selling my recently purchased Pedulla Thunderbolt. I bought it as a backup for my Spector and Sadowsky but I now have to sink some money into the Sadowsky for fret and neck work so it has to go. It is in very good shape for a 93. It is a 2 piece soft maple body with a beautiful birdseye top. Two piece flame maple neck and a rosewood fret board. There are a few nicks here and there which are included in the photos but they are pretty minor considering the age of the bass. It has been well taken care of. I bought it from the original owner who did a bit of refinishing of some buckle rash on the back. Not a bad job but the result is a slightly different colour in a couple regions on the back. You can see these in the photo. In most light it is invisible. There is also a bit of wear on the G string edge of the fingerboard which can be seen in photos. The wear is on the edge and does not effect playability at all. This bass has the most insanely fast neck I have ever played. It is sleek and slim and very easy to play. The controls are volume, pan, tone and the thunderguts switch which gives you a low mid boost. Sounds great, looks great and plays great. Comes with the OHSC and the Pedulla users kit which includes the manual the truss rod tool and a allen key for bridge adjustments.

    17.5mm spacing
    9 - 9.5 lbs according to bathroom scale. Not the most accurate scale but rest assured it is not a heavy bass.

    Selling for 1375 $1300 $1250.00 shipped in North America. I will ship oversees at the buyers expense.

    Not really looking at trades as I am trying to recoup some money for some work I need done. That said it never hurts to ask so PM me with what you were thinking.

    Pedullas are extremely underrated these days. Everyone wants the "hipster" brands like Fodera and Sadowsky. Great looking bass. You're right about the necks, they're incredible.

    I might send a PM your way. I'll have to look at my finances.

    They are underrated on here. Anyone who has played one can atest to the build quality and playability of these bass's. It really doesn't get much better.
