This is a "heads up" for those heading to the NAMM show in January.
Last week I picked up a bass Mike Lull repaired for me and had a chance to play an extremely giggable, blue, fretted 4 string that he's built for the upcoming NAMMfest and worth taking the time to play, if you're at the show.
It's got a Jazz neck w/a drop-D tuner, stacked Nordstrand pickups, Aguilar OPB3 pre-amp with toggled mid (400 or 800) boost, push/pull pot for active/passive function and I'm guessing under 8 pounds, in weight.
My response was that this is among the most practical (i.e "Swiss Army" like) basses I've ever played.... great tone, weight and functionality.
