Update: Still no sign thus far. DPD has expanded the search nationally, but not a single peep. Help me, fellow bassists...if you see a black Pedulla Rapture on a stage anywhere, do me a favor and look for that missing truss rod cover. If you see it missing, and it's colored-in black (you can tell that from a distance), try to look for that serial number (8795). If you see it, please call DPD immediately, and try to get us enough information that your local law enforcement can find the person who has it (name of band, name of player, places where they play, etc.).
No bass player will be harmed in this!!! I just need my bass back.
