    Hi again, :)

    I just was browsing the internet and ran across Muse's bassist, Chris Wolfienstien. (I think I spelt his last name wrong, sorry) And he had a pedulla raptor 4. It is probably the nicest bass I've ever seen.
    But looking on pedulla's website I see no 4 stringers. So assuming that I got the money to afford one of these basses, would I have to have pedulla custom build one for me?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    they are on the Pedulla website, and I have a Rapture J2 (two J bass pickups) myself, very nice basses indeed.

    GC usually has them in stock. The 4 stringers aren't "custom" as far as I know.

    Mike Pedulla offers certain options for his basses, but he does not make custom instruments. Excellent basses IMO but expect to receive a no if you request ANYTHING that is not offered in his options list.

    I've just sold a Thunderbolt 6 String to help pay for a new Thunderbass ET-5 with cocobolo top. Should be here by the end of Sept. Can't wait!

    The 4 string is available and it is not a custom order.
