    I haven't been able to find any Pedulla clubs out there in TB land (correct me if i'm wrong), so i decided i should start one...Plus this way i get to be #1 :)

    So come on all you Pedulla owners out there, just post a picture of your Pedulla and i'll get you a number!

    Here are mine, a 1990 MVP 5 & a 1997 Thunderbolt TB5

  2. I'm definitely in. And yet another chance to post my favorite bass!

    2006 Thunderbass ET5 with Cocobolo top, Bubinga knobs (THG Knobs), Bubinga tuning gears (currently on order from THG Knobs), and I'm having an ebony ramp built to go between the pickups. Currently strung with DR Lo-Riders (45-125)

    Cheers,

  6. My Rapture was the best all-around bass I've ever owned. I miss it horribly!

    I'd LOVE to join this club. Hopefully some time in my life I'll own a Pedulla.

    The MPV Buzz is one of my favourite instruments ever. Especially in all those crazy burst colours. The Bart P/J setup looks awesome too. :) Unfortunately they don't pop up in Australia much, and when they do, they are pretty pricey. I might have to buy one off the USA Ebay if/when I ever get one.

    I only GAS for two brands of basses now days,

    Pedulla, and Modulus. :ninja:

    Thanks!

    Lots of guys from MA here. Have any of you been down to Mike's shop? I've been there a couple of times for repairs. Mike is a real class act!

    Nice basses, guys. I love my Pedulla Rapture J. It looks good, it sounds good and it plays oh so well.

    I hate to cover up wood that pretty, even with an ebony ramp. I had a plexiglass ramp made for my F-Bass BN6 so that the wood can still be seen and it almost appears as if I don't have a finger ramp (see below).

  20. That looks really nice Tom! Great idea!

    When I get home, I will post pics of my Series II so I can be in the club too :)
