    Nice!

    I don't think I've seen a Rapture in natural before. Also never seen one without the Bart pre.

    Nice!

    In real life it's more of a yellow color. I think the pre was added by the original owner.

    I like it though....

    Very, very nice. It appears to have the optional coated fretboard, is this right?

    If so, that is the spitting image of the second best fretless I've ever played (though the one I played had a Bart preamp). Excellent basses. I love Pedulla.

    Yep coated board, factory fretless. The East pre is a bit hotter and sounds a bit different than my Thunderbolt 5 (it has the Bart pre), but I like it.
     
  7. Very nice, dabshire.

    All God's fretlesses are beautiful. ;)

    Enjoy.

    I am starting to get the urge for another fretless. Something like this would do nicely. Congrats.
