    It's time for me to part with this woefully underused bass. :bassist:
    I'd like to get $1,550 plus shipping for this bass. It comes with a Mike Lull gig bag.

    My Mike Lull fretless (serial # 549) in Lake Placid Blue is a beautiful bass, in mint condition -- no dings, no marks, could pass as brand-new.
    It has a Swamp-Ash body with Maple neck and lined Ebony fretboard that's really fast and easy to play.
    Bartolini hum-cancelling pickups and Bartolini 3-band active electronics too. Sounds amazing!

    The top picture is a pretty good representation of the color. The bottom one, not-so-much!

    "It had to be you ..."
    Seriously though, there must be a way to make this happen!

    I'm starting to think that I need to keep this bass and work on my fretless playing! My one-day-only effort was a dud!

    In my opinion, Mike makes the best fretless basses in the biz. Mine should be done sometime in the spring...hopefully...or I might start twitching too.

    Well, I certainly can't claim to have " played 'em all," but I can vouch for how well this one plays. I like it much better than the Ibanez Gary Willis or Pedulla Buzz basses I've played. To each his own, of course ...

    I'm searching for a fretless 5 right now! What is the scale length, nut width, bridge string spacing, neck profile (P vs Jazz, V, etc.)? Is this have more of a modern sound (MTD, Modulus) or traditional jazz bass tone?
