    I don't own one, unfortunately. But, I'd just like to say that a Rapture J-2 with the coated fretboard was THE best fretless I have ever played, hands down.
    The cool thing? The second best is a Buzz.

    Actually, the first bass I ever really was bowled over by in my life was a Thunderbolt w/ 19mm string spacing. Simply amazing. I'd like to own one if finances and GAS ever line up. They rarely do, but I'd love a Pedulla in my stable.

    Dream Pedulla? Rapture 5 in black (hardware, finish, picgaurd, headstock, rosewood board, ect).

    C'mon, post some pics people, Pedulla's are seriously one of the most underrated companies out there.

    I like mine. 97'ish Thunder Bolt. Bought it "used" (in near mint condition). Big sound. Big. Love it.

  5. Here's my babies...

    A Rapture PJ 5 in peacock blue w/ birdseye maple fretboard and 19mm spacing. And a Thunderbolt 5 in vintage cherry burst w/rosewood board and 19mm spacing, respectivly. I love the hell out of these things.

    like most normal(broke) bass players I would love to have one, especially since they are right around the corner from my house, I've been to the shop once or twice, and some of the cutoms they have are ridiculous, maybe someday I can afford one

    Here we go.

    Pedulla is an EXCELLENT company. Great products and great service. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for, they say.

    I'm probably going to get mine re-finished in a year or so. $500!!! But it will look like new. It's only $100 to re-do the fretboard.

    Gots to love a Pedulla. I passed mine along recently, but wouldn't refuse one in the future...

    I still want to see one like this in greater detail:

    it's too itty bitty...

    Yes. Yes I did. It was Spike's, if I recall correctly. I think I even had the money, but it was the shipping that was the hassle that broke the deal.

    Shame, that still looks like a million dollars. Er, well, pounds, I suppose. :D
