I am the recent owner of a gorgeous Raapt Pawn bass guitar.
I wanted to take a second and tell you about this bass and the maker "Randy"
Randy is a very mild mannered, talented bass player and amazing luthier. Don't hesitate to hit him up if you are interested in a bass or guitar.
Here are the specs:
Maple neck..(neck through)Flat radius
Indian Rosewood FB
Hipshot Kick Ass bridge and Hipshot Ultra Lite Tuners
19mm bridge spacing
Custom MJS P-style pick ups
This bass is killer! I have owned many handmade instruments. This bass is simple in the fact that it is a PBass. But there is nothing simple about it.
Randy spared no expense on the anything, hardware, strings, frets bone nut and the pickups are all top notch.
As I mentioned he is a talented luthier and the pics show off his work. But the pics don't do it justice. The woods have such nice grain, right down the the Bocote headstock cap.
Here is where the magic happens the neck is smooth as silk. With the hand rubbed oil finish this bass plays like no other bass I have owned.
Randy loaded the bass with Labella Nickel strings that are glorious & the flat radius board makes this thing play effortlessly.
I can't say enough good things about Randy and his basses.
Right down to the pickup selection these custom MJS pickups are fantastic.
Feel confident about his basses, like I said Randy is a very accomplished bass player. And his ability to play like he does translates perfectly to the quality of basses he makes. So with that being said he knows what a bass should feel like and play like. And he makes it so he is happy with it.
Check him out he will make whatever you want.
This bass works perfectly for my playing style. I have been gigging for 25 plus years playing Rock/Blues Motown and top 40's. That why the Pbass works perfectly for me.
Thanks Randy I truly appreciate all the efforts you put into your instruments. The level of craftsman ship is second to none.
Fit & Finish/Playability/Sound/feel/looks are all top shelf in my books.
