This was originally bought here on Basschat as a back up instrument to my 5-string Peavey Cirrus. It served well as a back up and wasn’t actually used except in a rehearsal and at home! It plays great however, and for those wanting a narrower string spacing on a 5-string it’s a good fit. It feels ‘easier’ to play than my Musicman Bongo (due to neck shape I suppose). It reminds me of the smoothness of my Mike Lull, but with a narrower string spacing. The active EQ can dial in a huge range of sounds making this an extremely versatile instrument. This article from back in the day features it in a high end 5-string shoot out:
Here are some of the specs as listed in that article:
Condition: very good with just a few minor flaws (see photos): surface scratch on the back of the bass; a slight string mark on the edge of the neck pickup; small mark on the back near the neck join.
This bass does not come with a case, so pickup preferred, but willing to discuss shipping. Based in Bradford.
This is a Marleaux Consat Custom 5 professionally converted to fretless, currently wearing nylon-wound strings. It is in good condition - just one visible ding on the top side near the cutaway (visible in the photo #4)
Neck 3-piece quilted / bird's eye maple with wenge veneers
Top burl ash (matching headstock)
Body mahogany with wenge veneer
Marleaux 3-band tone control with active / passive Switch
Basstec (Haussel) humbuckers
ETS Marleaux bridge and knobs
Kluson machine heads
Pedulla MVP 5 for sale in very good condition - mainly studio use throughout its life.
Michael Pedulla retired last year so they are no longer being made. Last UK list price for a similarly spec model Was £5,750.
No trades please.
AAA solid maple body wings
3 piece maple neck
Bartolini (proprietary to Pedulla) P/J pickups
2 band active electronics
17.5mm ABM bridge
Gotoh gold hardware
Very good condition (hardware shows age a little bit of tarnishing but body is truly mint).
Frets leveled recently so it plays with super low action if required
