Over the last few weeks I've picked up a cheapie (Harley Benton) and a gorgeous P workhorse (Fender Japan 70's Classic P) .....and finally got back a bass I should never have sold (Pedulla Buzz Deluxe fretless).
I've already upgraded the bridge & put blocks on the Harley Benton fretboard...and will be adding EMG Gzr pickup soon. The Fender already has upgraded wiring and the Pedulla is just lush.... so much 'mwaaaaah'!
This is a stunning bass, I bought new a Pedulla ET5 Cocobolo, Gold Hardware, Bartolini Pickups Plus
Thunderguts Low-Mids Boost Switch, 19mm String Spacing, Comes with original hard case

Hello! Up for sale a very nice Rapture 4. If I remember correctly it's the same model used by the Muse's bass player. As you can see, extremely clean example, good sounding, no issues. Pretty sure it's got Alder body, Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard and Bartolini soapbar.
Comes with original form-fitted case. Can ship worldwide by UPS, ask for a quote with your postal code... payment by bank wire transfer or PayPal. I have feedbacks here and on ebay. For more informations, pictures etc. drop me a line.

Some buckle rash on back and small amount of finish from back of the high neck (from previous owner).
Electronics in excellent working order and frets in good shape. Lovely low setup.
The bass case is in really good condition overall.
Only rehearsed with it once since acquiring from another basschat owner last year.
It really is an awesome bass and since Michael Pedulla has now retired I would expect these to grow in value, but im just preferring 4 strings recently and have a Pedulla Rapture 4 that gets more use.
Tried to show everything the best I can. If you want any more information or photos I can try get some.
These are really well reviewed, and ridiculously expensive new.
If you want to make me an offer, get in touch.
