Pedulla Rapture 2000 J 5 string bass

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by Jin Kim, Jun 4, 2005.


  1. This is a Pedulla Rapture J2000 5-String Bass with Bartolini Pickups and 2-band Active EQ. Color is Artic blue. It is made in late 2000 I think by Pedulla web site.
    I got it from David Wilson 2 weeks ago. But it is not my cup of tea so I'll let it go.

    The original hardshell case is in great shape and is included.
    The bass is used and has the normal very light surface "scratches" that are easily polished out. There is one place near the output jack that is through the finish. It is small and is shown clearly in the pictures.
    The sound of this bass is fat & warm which is great with birdseye maple fingerboard. It looks amazing.

    Overall this is just an incredible bass, and I hope it serves someone here well. $1050 shipped to lower 48. Money order or paypal prefered.
    Thanks. :)

    Pics aren't working. I think this was originally my bass, and I wouldn't mind having it back. :)

    Is it this one?

    I'll jump in for Jin here, hope he doesn't mind. While I can't say it's that one *for sure* without serial number, I can say it sure looks like it.

    It's a great bass, it just passed through my hands on my continuing gear curiosity

    If it's the same one, it's a fantastic bass. I sold it to WillplayforFood. I know he got rid of it after that for something else.

    I really may want it back.
     

  8. I think it is same one because of the pattern of flame maple figure.
    Yes, it is fantastic sounding bass especially low B is killer.
    I've never heard this kind of B with 34 scale.
    I am glad to meet original owner. Aren't you? ;)

    Excellent.

    I regret selling that bass in the first place.

    Let me do some horse trading, and if you still have it, I'll most likely snag it back.

    If I'm too late, it's just not meant to be. :)
    You interested in any trades?
     
  10. this whole situation is strange... but awesome.

    cool bass though!
     

  11. I am looking for F bass BN 5 at this moment. But I already am waiting for Lakland 55-94 which will be here on Thursday so I am not sure I have room for another one or not.
    Could you PM me what you got? Thanks.

    That price is a steal for this bass. They are wildly pricey new and the double-JJ's for some reason go for MUCH more than the single pup version.
     
  18. Everybody bump for the weekend. :bassist:
