Wife gave me 'new wood'.... I am in tears.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Chad Michael, Apr 12, 2004.


  1. After being a bassist for 19 years and wanting one of these since 1994, wife agreed I've waited long enough. I am soooo happy I could cry... hope it arrives before the gig Friday. :hyper:

    Edited on behalf wife: To give a little more "credit" to where it is due, it was actually encouraged (by the wife who surely deserves an overwhelming amount of appreciation in the spirit of good taste ;) and support) to inspire the luckiest man in existence when she bought that bass :cool: :D

  2. For those who like details:

    -Pedulla ThunderBass
    -neck thru
    -Barts
    -Drop in bridge
    -Curly maple, satin
    -19mm spacing

    For me personally, I've always loved the tone, playabiblity, quality, and personality of M.V. Pedullas. :hyper:

    Pedullas kick ass. I had a Rapture J2000 5 string that was fantastic. I've always loved the Thunderbass the most though. That one's a beauty. Congrats.
