This very beautiful instrument was produced in 2000. I've owned it since 2005, during which time it has only seen occasional studio use. It is in great condition. Full disclosure: There is a dent at the lower corner of the control cavity cover (which is shown in one of the photos in the attached slideshow), there is moderate oxidation of the metal parts, a few barely visible 1-2 mm dings, and some scratchiness in a couple of the pots. Also, as common with fretless Pedullas, there are some scratch marks on the fingerboard, in this case primarily below where the E, A and D strings travel over the 1st to 4th fret area - these are really only visual and not perceptible to the touch. From the owners manual: You will find that within a short period of time the finish will scratch or mark. Never fear, this is normal and will not affect the playability of the bass. Since Ive owned the bass I have always used nickel strings, which are easier on the fingerboard than stainless steel strings.
The strings currently on it are DR Sunbeams, .30 - .125.
Specs: AAA Flame maple, Neck-through body, 34 inch Scale, 17.5mm string spacing, lined ebony fretboard, 24/24 inlaid white markers on the fretless fingerboard, bone nut, single truss rod, gold hardware, M.V. Pedulla/Gotoh machine heads, Bartolini JJ pickups and Bartolini active electronics. Controls: Volume, Pan, Bass boost/Cut, Treble boost/cut, Mid boost/cut, Mid frequency select switch. Finish: gloss polyester, including BUZZ fingerboard.
The bass weighs in at a very comfortable and well balanced 9 lbs. 6 oz. The finish reads a bit more blue in the photos than it actually is
- Id say its closer to a true aquamarine color. The bass will ship in the original black rectangular hardshell case, and I have the original manual and instruction sheets.
