    Just a heads up to anyone who ever wanted to check one out. I checked the J (It was within arm's reach) It felt like a J, but clunky in a weird way. Not my type of neck at all I didn't plug it in, as I am not in the market for a bass anymore, but it was interesting to see. Also, they have a Yamaha BB300 for $129, which is a pretty good deal. The Lull P and J are going for $1400 each. Check 'em out if that's your poison.
     
  2. For that price, I'd rather get the second hand Elrick 5 strings NJS Bass for sale in this forum for $1650.
     
  3. I really like Mike's basses. My parents live about 10 blocks away from his shop in Bellevue, WA. He has a wide variety of electronics options available and IMO does some of the best setup work out there. My only criticism is that he is a parts builder (i.e. he doesn't build the necks and bodies himself) but that same argument can be made of Sadowsky and others. Of the basses I have played of his, all of them have been outstanding players. Next time I would definately plug one in and give it a second look of you are into the hodrodded Fender kind of vibe.

    I played a Lull J in a local store the other day. I spent some time with it, and while it was a good bass, I think I was expecting better. I would describe the way it played as 'clunky' as someone mentioned above. The sound was good though, I just didn't take to the feel. It wasn't as tight as I expected, I'm used to a Jazz having a tighter feel.
