Pedulla Rapture RB-5 5-String Bass Finish Tobacco Sunburst
The Rapture Series of bass guitars have their soul set in vintage vibes but with a supreme modern feel, build quality and attention to detail. Employing the traditional bolt-on neck join the Rapture Series differs from the MVP, Buzz and Thunder instruments that utilize through-neck construction. The bolt-on neck is constructed from rock hard maple and is available with a maple or rosewood fingerboard. Pedulla have a long tradition of using soft maple in their basses and the Rapture is no exception. Hand selecting beautiful grain the RB bass has a tone that is warm, rounded and balanced in tone. The high end is detailed but retains an overall warmth that lovers of vintage instruments will find instant appeal with. The RB-5 variation employs a single custom Pedulla/Bartolini pickup and active circuit with mid-cut switch. We would describe the RB series of instruments as perfect for bassists that need a versatile instrument with a vintage vibe and our customers for this instrument have included Chris Wolstenholme from Muse. Pedulla Basses are proudly made in the USA and come complete with hard case.
