    Those who know basses, know that Pedulla makes some of the best! :bassist:

    This is a beautiful, near-mint condition 4-string Pedulla Rapture RB-J2 bass.

    * Double Bartolini jazz pickups.
    * Maple body with bolt-on neck and rosewood fingerboard.
    * Active electronics include volume, pickup pan, treble and bass controls.
    * Emerald Green finish with pearloid pickguard.
    * Only a couple minor scratches on the back side (from my belt buckle).
    * Gig bag included along with a new set of Dean Markley Blue Steel strings.

    Retails for $3,195. Details here: http://www.pedulla.com/html/rapture.html

    I am the only owner, and this sweet baby has been babied -- no gigging, only studio use.

    Needless to say, it sounds amazing and is very versatile when it comes to shaping the sound.

    Also needless to say: I am sick about having to let it go. :bawl:

    Asking $1,250, which includes shipping in the continental USA and PayPal fees. Worth MUCH more. Steal it.

    That pretty much describes my sentiments too. :D :bawl:

    This is downright depressing. Nobody really cares about Pedulla basses anymore, and/or nobody plays 4-strings anymore. Someone please restore my faith in humanity. Or not. I can always waste my time dealing with the craigslist flakes.

    Guity as charged. I have a J5, which is awesome. Lotsa Pedulla love here. I might have extreme GAS if she were the soapbar. Bump from a Pedulla fan.

    Thanks for the bump. For the record, I'm told by another TalkBass'er that I should be selling this for $800. Yeah, right. Attention: any future Pedulla 4-string sellers... be prepared to get buggered with a resale value worse than that of a 10-year old beaten up Chevy pickup truck.

    I'm out...

    Tough for anyone selling right now...I got my hands on a Pedulla and it's my favorite bass now. You just play better with a guitar of this quality.

    $800 seems a little on the low side. I just bought this exact bass, same color & condition, used at a local shop for $950. Really sweet bass.
  12. Some more pic´s might help you sell it, if it´s near mint!

    My beat-to-hell 1986 MVP that I got on TB for $650 is my best-playing bass. I respect your bass, and its price... I just don't need another Pedulla.

    But I'll bump yours because it looks like a great deal to me!

    I'll also add...hooray for 4 strings!
