    Real world problem ya know. To trade or not. I've been offered in return for my 2011 Lull M4V (great condition) a rare-ish 1984 G&L SB2 maple body two singles good condition and a 1997 L2000 very good condition rose board and a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.2. The second offer from the interested party was one of the aforementioned G&L's the Genz Benz and a Bergantino HT112 and a EX112. He really wants my Lull. Well I turned it down. Mainly because presently I don't need that much amplification and I may never have the opportunity to own a Lull again. All that said, I love G&L. I own 94 LB-100. I know the Bergies and the now discontinued Genz are are quality and the Lull might not be the end all bass to the grave for me personally.

    So folks there it is. Just stuff bouncing around in my head in the post Christmas lull...no pun intended. I'm sure some of you can relate if you admit it or not. I know i'll get the deserved " your choice man" and biased opinions from both camps and that's cool but anyone who cares to comment with thoughtful and or "educated" opinions, that would be appreciated.
  2. I'd personally say that your existing Lull is a much better bass, but that's because even having owned a couple, I've never played a G&L I truly liked.

    As for the Genz Benz stuff, yes they're amazing - I've been using GB equipment for about six years and it makes everything sound amazing.

    But I'd still keep a hold of your Lull, unless you have a chance to play the G&L and find it is a truly amazing bass.

    Personally, I think you did the right thing in the Lull simply because I have one and know how good they are.

    Even though I am G&L fanboy, that Lull would be hard to replace. You said that the Lull might not be the end all though, so that means it could be expendable. If he wants it that bad, I'd tell him 'both basses, the amp, and the cabs'.

    Thanks for the response. Yeah I tried that but he didn't go for it. He counter offered a lower end 4 ohm GK 115 in place of the bergies if I needed both basses and amp. I declined. If I let my Lull go I want the I want those Bergantinos. It sounds weird but the only reason I've even entertained the notion to move the Lull is its finish. Sherwood Green with matching head. I ordered that way too. Silly me. What was once cool seems gaudy now. That and I'm a passive P style fan.
