    Congrats man! I've been gassin' for a J2 almost since I started playing.

    You know the routine. We expect pics shortly! :p

  3. Hope you enjoy your new Pedulla!


    I wanted one for 10 years before I finally got mine. It was worth the wait.

    What kind of Ashdown cab is that amigo? Is that the standard ADM 4x10? Looks smaller than that...

    NO mate, its the ABMmini4x8 :)
  11. Do you guys have a soundclip? I went to the Pedulla web sight and it said the raptures bods were "soft curly maple." I didn't know if this differed in tonal quality from the typical alder or ash. I am interested in the one with the single coils and not the one with the MM pup.

    I'm always amazed at how teeny these basses are.

    Toasted is that bass standard 34" scale? Looks so small, like the reach to 1st fret is notthing.
  14. They're 34". The lower bout is balanced so that the bass is resting a bit back when played on knee. I've played one and they are superlight. Fingerboard is very nice to play on.
