Pedulla Thunderbass 5 ET

Recommended Posts

Have decided to sell my beloved Pedulla. The bass comes with original case and all the candy that belongs there.
Specs are:

- Neck thru, 34" scale
 -24 frets
- 19mm spacing
- 5 piece maple neck w/ bubinga stringers
- Ebony board w/ some sapwood figuring
- Cocobolo top wood
- Soft Maple body wings
- Bartolini/Pedulla Pickups
- Bartolini/Pedulla 9V Preamp w/Thunderguts mid switch.
- Dunlop recessed flush mount straplocks
- Gold Hardware

The reason for the low price is that the bass received a knock on the back of the neck. I didn't noticed it until I changed strings. I took it to a pro builder/repair guy, and he fixed it. It is as good as new, and more stable than a very stable genius. I have tried to take a picture of it, but it's hard to spot. 
Shipping to Europe included.

      USA Peavey Millennium Plus 5-string     Body: Alder with flame maple top Finish: Gloss lacquer Scale: 35" Neck and fingerboard: Maple Pickups: 1x Peavey VFL active style, 1x Peavey VFL active soapbar  Controls: Active 18v 3 band preamp with mid sweep control Frets: 21 Medium Nut width: 47mm Neck width: 69mm at 21st fret String spacing at bridge: 17.5mm Weight: 4.24kg / 9lb 4oz Dunlop Straploks   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:   http://www.statii.com/status_cats/reviews/15/index.html   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.

      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 Ebony fingerboard 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
