    I know what most people here think of Warlock basses, but there must be SOMEONE who can appreciate this one. I saw it recently on Ebay....it is an L.A. series, trans-purple finish and has been converted to a fretless.
    Does anyone know what the difference is with the L.A. series basses?

    I own 2 Lulls and am going to but a third Lull P bass.

    One is a vintage 4 with 2 band Bart EQ with Fralin singles, and one is and Modern 5 with Bart jazz pick-ups and a 3 band Bart EQ.

    They are the best sounding and playing bass I ever owned in 25 years.

    I tried Lakland, Pedulla, Modulus, and others, Fenders which really "suck". Leo was a genius with his inovations, but never perfected the insturments "sorry". Lull perfected Leos design period.

    Please dont "bash" Smith he a great guy, opinionated but so what he believes in his product and is one of the most inventive guys around, not to mention a great player.
    I own a Smith 5 but thats a different sound and they are great basses and Ken is a nice Guy. I've been to his shop twice and he's more than nice and patient. Give it up!
     
  3. Wrong thread, dude.
     
  4. it has non-standard pickups and bridge too..
    I think this is a custom-made warlock, or somebody just took the warlock body and build a whole new bass around it.

    anything by bc rich,hamer,or jackson i never really liked.It seems as if they concentrate on the look more than the sound and performance.allodox is right,that ones if probably alot better than the standard ones.But i mean its impossible to fit those things into the cases,they sound so muddy,and there all so heavy.
     
  6. L.A. series have P/J pups, and I BELIEVE don't have the Widow heastock. But I could be wrong.

    I do like the finish. But I always thought the Warlock looked kinda lop-sided.

    Rock on
