I welcome all questions and inquiries about this bass, but please, send them via private message only, thank you. Also, NO TRADES, sorry. Mike Lull Modern 5 (AKA M5) custom five string bass for sale, as pictured below. Mike built this bass for me in the year 2008. To make a long story short, this bass has gone unplayed and it is still a brand new instrument. Hand on my heart, I NEVER used it once on a live performance, and the bass has only been played briefly in my apartment, right after it was shipped to me from the Lull shop, and then I just set it aside in late 2008. So, the bass is virtually immaculate. Which means: no cosmetic/functional issues, no fretwear, not one scratch, not one ding, et cetera. My busy touring and teaching schedule has prevented me to put this bass up for sale until now. But here’s your opportunity to get one amazing custom Lull bass for a fraction of what it would cost you new.
