M. V. Pedulla Guitars

Pedulla guitars have been handmade in the USA since 1975. We’ve been working with them for decades – providing exclusive custom-made pickups and electronics that are fine-tuned for their precision instruments.  We congratulate Michael and Christine on their retirement in 2019. They have contributed much to this world of music. The legacy that is “Pedulla” will go on to inspire generations of musicians.  Enjoy your time, you have earned it!!

Pedulla Basses use proprietary Bartolini Pickups that have custom voicings and unique electronics packages. These components will be available from Bartolini as replacements, and for restorations of Pedulla instruments only. Proof is required.  Contact support@bartolini.net for more information.

If you have another instrument that you want to sound like a Pedulla, we understand, but we can’t help. We have great respect for our customers and the custom designs we develop with them.

Some Pedulla basses used active pickups like the BC4KE and BC5KE – a wiring diagram can be found here: BC4KE, BC5KE, P25KE, P45KE Wiring

A wiring diagram for the “old” Thunderbass® and Thunderbolt® using the above active pickups can be found here: Thunderbass and Thunderbolt with 4 pots and active pickups
