    The good news is another band has asked me to bass for them, the bad news is I need another rig to leave at their practice facility, my rig is at my main band's place. Since I haven't finished paying for my last GAS attack, I'll have to move something.

    My green Rapture is in near mint condition, the unlined board is a very dark rosewood. The S/N is 5128R, weight is 8.8 lbs. I'm estimating the value at around $1,100. I know this may seem a little high to some, but fretless Rapture's are only available as custom orders and this one is in very good condition, as is the hardshell case.

    I'm looking for an equal value rig, or a combo + $. E.G. Mesa Boogie 400, Eden Nemesis, SWR Silverado etc. I prefer the combo have 210s or 212s, but I'll consider a 115.

    Email photo's available. Quickest response by emailing leogarcia@palm.net

    Okay, found a nice rig at a good price, I'll take $1,000 for the Rapture. Try to find another single PUP Rapture fretless 5 (I haven't seen one) at any price. These are great basses, I'll match the playability against any fretless including any of my "boutiques.
