    Pedulla Rapture that has been modified. It started off as a single soapbar 5-string in purple.
    Modifications include:
    • added 2 Bartolini jazz pickups (these are from another Rapture)
    • Changed out the stock soapBar for the classic (IIRC) soapbar (brighter sounding)
    • Removed the Bart preamp and installed a Nordy 2-band (much clearer).
    • changed out the pickguard (white to black) - slightly wider cut on the neck pickup (see pics)
    • Lacquer black - please see pics for imperfections
    • Replaced barrel-style bridge with a HipShot A brass (IIRC)

    Controls are as follows:
    Volume (P/P active/passive)
    Pan (Jazz pickups/SB & JJ/SB)
    toggle switch (neck Jazz/Both Jazz/Bridge Jazz)
    Treble
    Bass

    Bass had been professionally setup several years ago and still plays awesome (I rarely had a chance to play it).

    Truss rod works as it should - no issues at all.

    Includes Pedulla hardshell case.

    the bass is being discounted for the cosmetic issues with the paint.

    I had a CAR Pedulla Rapture 5 back in the early 90s - incredible bass! But this one is a beauty! GLWS!

    I like things that go BOOM
    I believe OP stated that bass was refinished.
