Sweet, Huh. I't s Pedulla Rapture J2-5.
Got my annual bonus last week, and decided it was time to trade my crappy Carvin in for a new bass. Planned to buy a Musicman Stingray 5, and had my man Rick at the Guitarhangar looking for one -- he's not an MM dealer, so he was making a rounds.
Called me today, saying he was having a tough time finding what I wanted. Mentioned that he a G&L in stock, but I'm not really keen on those.
Then mentioned somewhat casually that this had come in -- mint condition, barely played. Price was half original list, which was less than I had planned to spend on a new 'Ray 5.
Went into check it out, and it was nearly unplayable. But a quick adjust on the trussroad did the trick.
Nice feel, nice balance. And the tone!!!! Oh my goodness. Can't wait to hear it through my Eden Rig. The pickups and elex are Barts, which I love.
It's still at the shop -- getting strings, set-up and straplocks. I pick it up Saturday.
