I have a pristine teal Rapture with a stripped trussrod. I finally bit the bullet and sent it to Pedulla who has informed me a new neck is needed. This is a real nice bass, but I don't use it much since I'm partial to my Roscoe's and Lakland. This year I put a fretless neck on my '66 Jazz, and I have been enjoying it so much, that I have been considering a 5 string fretless. Now my question. What would it do to the value of the Rapture if I have Pedulla put a fretless neck on it? I know they only go for around $800 on the used market, and this is going to set me back around $400, so all told I'll have about $1,500 into it. If I were to sell, I'm curious as to it's perceived value. To my knowledge, it would be the only fretless Raptor in existence, unless someone else has custom ordered one. The good news? I would have a real nice, and unique fretless 5. I could even have slightly closer string spacing arranged for more of a custom fit. Opinions? BTW, if you would like to see my harem, go to photopoint.com, account: [email protected] under Recreation. Thanks in advance and have a safe holiday. P.S., heading to Orlando next week, looking forward to seeing Beaver's new shop.
