    Michael Pedulla has retired from his role as a legendary and original luthier, but examples of his work live on.
    This is a 9 pound Rapture 5 single pickup with a proprietary Bartolini humbucker and preamp circuit. One outstanding feature is the Thunderguts toggle switch, which transforms this from a smooth sounding thumper to a wall cracking, gut rumbling monster
    Bass is in excellent condition with one ding on the upper edge. Comes with original Pedulla case and truss rod tool.
    Possible trades: Bluesman Vintage or Nash PJ or J. The right, light Music Man.
    One other thing, you can’t get these basses made any more. What was made are all that will be made. This one can be yours. Shipping only to continental U.S. and cost will be added to price.

    What’s the string spacing on this one? Thanks

    I cannot honestly say. I think, from feel, it is the 17.5 mm spacing. It doesn’t feel especially tight compared to other 5s I have had.
