    ....my process of shedding gear/getting smaller continues.....

    I am the original owner...bought it from Chicago Bass Exchange a few years ago. It was already a nice 7.5 lbs when I got it....then I had the pre removed (long gone).....it now has passive (cut only) bass and treble, pan and volume....superb, classic, passive J tone courtesy of original Lull J pups.....taught, clear, deep B string and great balance....with room to put a pre in if you need one. I added a single, recessed Dunlop strap lock receiver to the lower body edge (see pics) for my bass belt. She has been babied at home, played out a handful of times. No blemishes I can find and a glorious neck with no fretwear. I wish I took better pics-these do not do it justice at all.


    $2500 US OBO shipped to CONUS or most of canada (maritime provinces and far north will be more. Local pickup in Montreal for less. Partial trades considered for a very small combo, a cab under 40lbs or a head, EHX Microsynth Bass or similar pedal. I might consider a bass trade if there's at least $1200 coming my way and it's TRULY under 9 lbs and 34" scale-would consider fretless 4 or 5, fretted 5 only.

    She plays and sounds even sweeter than she looks, and at this weight, your shoulder will smile as much as your fingers and ears.

    That's a gorgeous bass! Having owned a handful of Lulls, plus the infamous "LullDowsky" bass, I know how great it will play and sound. Just wish I could afford to add another Jazz-style bass to my collection!

    By the way - does it have the 34" or 35" scale neck? Also, 12" fingerboard radius and asymmetrical neck profile? Finally, I am assuming that it has Mike's "standard" 1.875" nut width (I know that he does some 5-string M5V and M5 basses with a narrower nut width (1.813", I believe), because I owned one about 6 years ago.

    Thanks!

    34" scale neck, and yes to the rest :)

    So, that means 1.875" nut width and an asymmetrical neck profile similar to the neck shape on the Bryan Beller Signature M5 model, correct?

    I do not know if this has the same neck profile as Beller's sig model, but it's definitely a svelte neck, not chunky at all...quick thin. I am sure Mike Lull will have the deets you seek :)

    Sorry no clips. I am happy to face time or skype and do some noodling for an interested buyer.

    I have had several inquiries regarding shipping out of N. Am.....here's the deal.....I am willing to ship anywhere under the following conditions:

    I will cover the 1st $100 USD of shipping; the remainder would have to be paid by the buyer. I would require payment via bank transfer in advance. I have sold to Europe and S. America before like this without issue (check my copious feedback). Simply initiate a conversation with any questions.
