Guitar center in Fairfax VA got a Pedulla Pentabuzz 5 I believe its called. Always hear about them on here but never got a chance to play one. This bass was a fretless. I'm not nessicarily new to fretless, I own one I defretted myself. Plays alright but not amazing. Anyway. I plug the beast in. I'm sitting there in my little cushioned stool, speechless. It was probably the greatest sounding instrument i have ever heard. The Bartolinis make it better too. If I could afford one at $2600, I would switch full time to fretless. I just wanted to share my experience, and send greetings to all the lucky folks who can afford a beautiful Pedulla bass guitar.
