    Weekend price drop. $1100 shipped in the 48!

    Traded for this recently but find I prefer 19mm spacing.

    The bass is in excellent condition, close to mint. No marks or dings I can find.

    It has the 17.5mm string spacing, nice birds eye maple on the fingerboard.

    Extremely comfortable to play, weighs a very reasonable 8.5lbs on the bathroom scales.

    It's a transparent teal color that gives digital cameras fits. The pic posted here is close. The other pics here are too blue.

    It comes with the original hardshell case in very good condition.

    Looking for $1200 shipped in the 48.

    I have my eye on something in the classifieds so not really looking for trades.

  2. PM incoming...
  3. Wow! Thats a sweet bass. Sure looks a lot like the Rapture J/2 5.

    My bass teacher back in the day when I was at Berklee, David Buda, played and still plays one of these. When it comes to playing bebop on electric bass he is one of the best. If his name had more recognition this bass would be selling for 3 times as much.

    Free bump for a beautiful example of a Rapture. My GAS list is short, but includes one of these, with that string spacing. I'm feeling a flare up right now. Good luck, wish it could be mine.

    That's one of the prettiest basses I've seen!

    Does it come with the special custom truss wrench?

    Not really that special nor custom. Its a standard Autoharp tuning key / wrench available on MF / AMS for $4 apiece.

    Good God Jim... this another bass that just makes me nervous as hell.

  17. For what it's worth, I have a Pedulla Thunderbolt in what I believe is the same color (Peacock Blue). Mine is quite hard to photograph as well, but the color is quite striking in person. I really want to get this one still, but if I did, I'd be sleeping on the couch.

    However... to do so...

    Sell my custom 5-string Regenerate '51 TeleP? Nope
    Sell my 1 of 79 Reverend Brad Houser? Nope
    Sell my Fendowsky Deluxe 5? Can't

    Guess I'm teh screwed.

    This used to mine. I'd never sold it if I could adjusted to 17.5mm string spacing.
    Great bass and it was flawless when I sold it, and still looks the same mint condition.
    Pups and preamp is barts that has smooth deep sounding, but with many other tones options. Weight is very very light, one of the lightest bass that I ever had. Color in person is like diving into blue ocean.

    come on guys, this is a great bass!
