    Hello everyone, I have a gorgeous Pedulla Thunderbolt 5.

    Flamed maple top, dual bartolini soapbars, 2 band bart preamp with "thunderguts" switch. Cherryburst w/gold hardware, rosewood board.

    I love this bass but find it not getting played anywhere near as much as my Rapture 5, so I have come to the conclusion that I should try and get another Rapture.

    Anybody out there wanting to trade up to a Thunderbolt?
    I will consider all models of Rapture basses (although for certain ones I would need cash to be added to the deal).

    I would also consider selling outright for somewhere in the $1500 range.

    Willing to accept cash offers and also hear any other possible trade offers for high end 5's (Chezchtors, Modulus, etc).

    Would you consider my Lakland? I'd consider it a mid-range bass, and it has a maple board too. Mint condition.

    Thanks for the offer, but I'll have to pass for the time being. I had a 55-01 and it just wasn't my cup of tea.

    Cool. Man, this is crazy. Every time I want an instrument, I can never find it. But then when I have the one I wanted, I can never sell it! Crazy! :)

    There's gotta be someone around here looking for a quality five for WAY less than they can buy it new.

    I have a Rapture J2 that I'm totally in love with, but I'm not playing 4s much at all these days. How does the Thunderbolt differ in sound than the Raptures?

    The Thunderbolt is alot more thick and deep sounding. The best analogy I have heard is J-Bass vs. P-Bass but that really isn't even acurate since it is humbuckers and has a very wide range of tones available.

    I also sent you a PM
