  1. I am selling the Rapture 2000 and my Valenti bass:

    I am asking for $1500 for it. I thought this day would never come but I have to let go my Pedulla Rapture 2000 bass. this has flamed maple body, maple neck and maple board. Bartolinin for Pedulla preamp and pick ups. It comes with the original Pedulla case and the fretboard has birdseye maple

    here is a pic of one of this towards the bottom:
    Pedulla Ads page 4
    specs of current Rapture: M.V. Pedulla Guitars, Inc. do not forget this has the birdseye maple board and the flamed maple body versus the new Raptures so it sounds, looks and feels way better.

    The Rapture is a beast of a bass. Plus Jorge is straight up guy and a personal friend. Highly recommended!

    Is the string spacing 17.5mm or 19mm for the Rapture?
  5. 19mm
    It is very comfortable

    I have the same Rapture and can also attest to it being an astoundingly excellent bass, for both live work and recording. Best recording bass I've ever owned, always got tons of compliments when I played it out and in the studio. Can't go wrong.

    Atypical, not a typical...
    I love my 2 Raptures.

    I would be interested, but I need a new Mac, not another Rapture.

    Free bump, good luck with the sale.

    This Valenti kills. I owned it once. This is one bass that I wish I could get back. Maybe I can come up with some funds...
  11. ON THE Valenti:
    When this bass was built it had an Aguilar 2 band preamp and now it has a Nordstrand 3 band preamp with volume 1, volume 2, mid frequency selector, mid, lows and high eqs so it is more versatile and clearer tone than it used to be with the Aggie.

    On The Pedulla:
    This bass was used to redo several tracks for a cd by Miguel Calvetti.
