    Up for sale is a very nice Pedulla Rapture RB4. Bass plays and sounds amazing! Has a super fast neck and is very easy to play. Currently setup with medium low action bass plays like butter. Also balances perfectly on a strap or on leg. Does have some player wear as you can see below. Some body dings and one on the neck. Also a very small split in the paint at the neck joint I can't seem to catch in a pic. You can also see string wear on the pickup. Everything works as it should and the electronics are quiet and sound great.

    Bass has all the original components and I am the second owner. Will ship in a somewhat beatup but fully functional Pedulla gig bag. Also full disclosure, the gig bag smells like it was in a smokers house.

    Color looks more green than the pics show. I would say teal, looks killer under bright lights.

    Yours for $650 shipped CONUS. Will ship to Canada if buyer pays additional shipping cost. You would be hard pressed to find a better play and sounding bass for the price.

    Couple more pics,

    Only real ding on the neck, in between tenth and eleventh fret. Can't feel but you can see it.

    Trying to capture the color better. Looked pretty green outside in person.

    This is a steal. Wish I hadn't just bought a bass.

    A steal is right! I had one of these basses and the neck was incredible.

    thanks. Yes I have the truss rod wrench around here somewhere. I think.

    I agree. I'd keep it if it were chunkier.

    is the PU a humbucker? I had a JJ 5 rapture; I wonder how these sound.

    Yes, its a humbucker. Sounds modern and pretty clean set flat bumping the bass really gives it some beef without being boomy. Sounds surprisingly perfect.

    Had a couple of people ask. This bass weighs 8.5 lbs on my crappy scale. Not heavy or light, just right.

    Thanks! I got a good deal, so I'm happy to pass that along. I just prefer a bigger neck. Have gotten away from jazz sized necks in general, they are cool but aren't compatible with my hands. The balance and sound are incredible. This is easily the most balanced bass guitar I've owned.

    Thanks!

    I would consider a partial trade for a head. Can't do an even trade, would still need some cash.
