    The single soapbar is my favorite of all Pedulla configurations.

    Hmm... The Rapture was on my "Short List" when I was deciding what J-type Basses I would be going with, it's a Lavendery-Purple which is my Better-Half's favorite color, even one of "Our Songs", and even have a matching headstock!.. .

    ...we might have to have a "discussion" when she awakes!

    This bass is gorgeous! Brilliant color, single soapbar, this thing is perfect. Wish I had the scratch to take it off your hands. GLWTS

    If preferred, I can include a Pedulla original hard shell case instead of the Gator ultralight case. Buyer's choice.

    I own a Rapture JJ 5-string. I paid $2,250 for it. This is a crazy low price.

    $950? I paid more than that for one in worse condition and still think I got a bargain ...

    I agree. In the last couple weeks I've seen couple ones just like this but different color, in worse condition, sell for more than this on Ebay. Will be listing on tomorrow Ebay if this doesn't sell by then.
