Pedulla Rapture

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by count_funkula, Jun 16, 2001.


  1. I saw a Pedulla Rapture yesterday in the $2000 range. It had a transparent blue body and a birdseye maple fretboard. Absolutely beautiful!!

    What is a good price on one of these?

    I think about $1600 for a Rapture. Unless it has a AAA top or something.

    That's a Millennium Rapture. There's one selling used but mint at Basscentral for around $1800. It's not blue, tho.

    The Rapture 2000 lists for $2695, they usually seem to go around $2000 - $2100.

    I was between buying a Pedulla Rapture J 2000 5 string & a Sadowsky 24 fret 5. I went to Guitar Center in Carle Place & traded my Spector NS-4 for the Pedulla. The Pedulla played & sounded GREAT. I went right to Roger's shop w/my Spector NS-5 & newly aquired J2000. The Spector held it's own with the Sadowsky. They both had things I loved about them, but the J 2000 didn't even come close. I put a deposit on a Sadowsky & I am going to return the Pedulla when I have a free day.

    I paid $1800 for it & it was tagged @ $2169. If you really want it, you can talk the store down. If they don't move on the price, walk.
