Pedulla Rapture 5 string with hard case
Plays amazingly well and hasThomastik-Infeld strings.
Minimal fret wear and it has a nice, clean and fast back of neck.
The stock Bartolini was replaced with a 18v Emg setup, the 2 9V's are under the pickguard.
The finish is an oddity, apparently someone painted it silver and then
Stripped at least the silver off, well most of it, there's some on the
Headstock, where the neck meets the body (guess they didn't take it
Off), and a spot where the contour is that unfortunately doesn't really
Show in the photo. I contacted the lady at Pedulla to find out if the (i
think that's pink) color was original but she just told me what the
Current colors are and how much a total restoration package is. The
Finish is pretty light showing the wood underneath pretty well and has
Some darker areas, not sure if it was the original finish which is now
Maybe lightened up some or what.
The case has wear and some painted initials, only real problem is the
Handle where on one side, one half is broken(see pic). I tried some 5
Minute epoxy to hold it which worked for awhile but eventually broke.
The handle still works but will probably break on the other half

Person sales where you can verify this yourself. However, as I write this it is

Guitars you know that temperature and humidity effect their set up and
