    One-of-a-kind, custom-built bass, handcrafted by master luthier Mike Lull in 2017. One of the first of his 30" scale P-basses that were introduced at Winter NAMM 2017 (last year). Completely custom made to my specs. Currently For-sale-only, and I may come to my senses at any time.


    Seeking $2250 shipped within North America. Will not ship outside of North America, sorry.
    No trades at this time.

    I was going after a modern, superbly playable short-scale bass with the Darkstar sizzle.
    This bass has all of that. Features low action, a fast neck, light weight (7 lbs 2 oz), is perfectly balanced, and has a unique voice thanks to the punchy, full-range Novak Bisonic/Dark Star pickup with passive electronics.

    • Body shape is Precision, with forearm contours
    • Extremely light and resonant alder, bass weighs 7 lbs 2 oz total. A dream weight for those who have difficulty with heavy basses.
    • Finished in a matte Ocean Blue Metallic that begs for attention, quite stunning in person
    • Mint/mint condition. Gigged once, some of the only minor-est of player wear, no dings whatsoever.
    • Quartersawn maple, satin finish
    • 30" scale from nut to bridge
    • 1.5" nut width, nut material is hand-carved bone
    • Rosewood fretboard
    • Novak Bisonic pickup, painstaking replica of the Hammond Dark Star pickup
    • Fully shielded control and pickup cavity
    • Fully passive, controls are overall volume, and overall tone, just like a P-bass
    • All-black hardware
    • Brass Hipshot A style bridge
    • Hipshot UltraLite tuning keys
    • Matte Black pick guard
    • Currently strung with Ernie Ball Cobalt flat wound strings.
    • Mike Lull-logoed Protec Contego-style gig bag
    Priced at $2250 including shipping within North America.
    Price is firm and I'm in no hurry to sell.
    PayPal preferred

    me too, Kawai

    I had someone ask if I have sound clips.
    I do have some iphone video of me playing the bass, but nothing high-fidelity.
    Convo/PM me if interested in links to those.
