    This is the bass on Glenn's Austin Bass Traders website. He still has pics up on site.
    I did verify the specs with Mike Lull and Glenn had 2 things listed wrong. It is an alder body not ash & it has a Seymour Duncan pickup not Lindy Fralin.

    Here are the specs, confirmed by Mike Lull Guitars:

    Mike Lull P 5 Ice Blue with matching headstock
    Alder body
    Maple neck/ Brazilian rosewood fingerboard
    35” scale
    18mm string spacing
    Seymour Duncan Custom Shop P pickup, made to Mike's spec.
    Passive vol. and tone controls
    White pickguard
    Plek'd
    Weight 8 lbs
    Mike Lull custom cream Tolex hardshell case

    Built December 2008
    For Winter NAMM 2009

    Mike remembers the bass well and considered keeping it for himself.
    It does have Brazilian Rosewood fretboard that he doesn't offer anymore.

    Bass is in 9.8 out of 10 condition.

    Price: $1900 including shipping to lower 48 states. Paypal is fine.

    Here's the link to Glenn's site:

    Glenn is a great guy and very knowledgable about basses. He is extremely great to work with.

    Wow, I drooled over that one for months! No trades, I am afraid?

    Have you confirmed with Mike that this instrument was Plek'd? Glenn didn't think it was.

    I played this bass when it was at Mike's shop. Killer tone. Almost bought it back then. Wish I had the funds to buy it now. GLWTS !

    Is the bridge adjustable out to 19mm?

    I am not sure. Maybe a Lull expert will know. When I measured the spacing, it came out to 18.25625mm.

    The very exact ruler, but had to convert inches to mm. Plus my OCD kicked in. :)

    I'm pretty sure 19mm will not fly, with this or any other bridge on this bass. I asked Lull if they'd make a custom with 19mm spacing and they said no.

    Bump for a spectacular instrument!!!

    Bump, Not the best pics but she's packed and ready to go. Also, shows the cool case and comes with Mike Lull cloth, Dunlop strap locks, small allen wrench & Plek card.

    How would you compare the Duncan pickup to the Lindy Fralin? I've played a Lull with a Fralin and loved it and have duncans in my Fodera but not sure how they compare.

    Also, when did Mike stop offering the Brazilian RW? I hadnt heard that.

    Very tempting.

    Can't compare the Duncan to the Lindy Fralin. I have never played the Fralin's.

    The Duncan sounds like a good, vintage P bass to me. Polar opposite of EMG's which I have in another bass.

    I'm not sure when Mike stopped using Brazilian Rosewood but both Mike & Paul confirmed they can longer use it.

    What are the frets like on this? Vintage sized or jumbo or somewhere in between?

    And...

    Free bump because, in my book, Mike makes the best feeling 5er necks in the business.

    Not sure about the frets. Maybe a Lull expert can chime in.
