i am probably going to buy a pedulla rapture bass. i've played one here in phx, az at guitar center and i love it. i just want to make sure i won't kick myself for missing out on something else because it has taken me 6months to save up. i play a fender jazz deluxe and i also have played a borrowed modulus at my gigs. i play through an aguilar 4x10 and a swr head. i play a lot of jazz and blues rock and want to keep my killer warm tone i already have. but i have some slap gigs and my only reservation about the pedulla is the bartonlini pickup. it played perfect on a red head combo there but people have said things about the bartolini not being a good slap pop pickup.(say that 10 times fast). mabey i'm worrying about nothing because i have been known to dial in about any tone i want with my amp and i love the preamp on the pedulla. also is there anything else out there i should try before i make my decsion? i have $1800-2000. thanks for any and all feedback.
