I really feel fortunate to live in Seattle

    I just got back from Mike Lull's shop after he performed some magic on my newly acquired '75 Fender Jazz Bass. The bass played pretty well when it was first shipped but after his work, it just came alive, even with flat wounds and string mutes.

    Couple this with the fine folks at Bass Northwest and I can't think of many other places where one would be as fortunate to be a bass player.

    Definitely counting one's blessings.

    Yeah i know what you mean, Seattle is great for bass players it seems like. Now i just need to find a place with some Rickenbackers in stock and i'll be set.

    I love Mike Lull's work... have owned just about everything out there in a Jazz style bass... settled on a Lull
    somehow, those things play so easily.. and they sound great.
    I wish i lived in Seattle! The Puget sound, Mt Rainier .... dang... gotta settle for Vegas...
     
  4. right there with ya' man!
    here in Dallas, we have several, very good shops.
    you just can't beat a "pro" set-up, from a good tech. :cool:

    Simply reading the words "Mike Lull" makes me salivate...

    I've given the Lull's a try - Sadowsky's for me, personally (if I was going to go for a 34" scale - I'm going for a 32" or a 33")

    see? we are all different- i have had 2 Sadowskys - both fantastic basses, but i get around better on a Lull
    that's the beauty of it all, individuality :D

  13. I had no idea Lull was in Seattle. That rocks! I believe BassNorthwest has a vintage fretless Ric in their shop.
