For Sale Pedulla Hexabuzz fretless 6-string
Available on

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.
Im not interested in any trades, and local pickup/delivery is ok. Im in Laguna Beach, CA
$2250 shipped within continental US
