    I just got a minty fresh Lull PJ-5 in trade, and found pretty quickly that its just not quite right for me. Build quality and tone are top notch, this bass is stunning, and I'm a bit heartbroken that my hands don't like it. Great sound, great low B. Duncan pickups. Amazing looking 2-tone burst with tortoiseshell guard.

    This bass weighs about 8-8.5 lbs. :eek:

    PM me your email for more pics. Other than a little player wear on the pickguard this thing is in pristine condition.

    I'll let you know up front that there is a bit of a dead spot in the usual P-bass location. I have a groove tubes fat finger that I can sell you that will minimize its effect in the case that it bothers you.

    $1700 shipped via UPS ground within the lower 48, includes non-original hardshell case. Prepay with postal money order. I'll consider trades on good old rosewood board Fender Precisions, a rosewood board Lakland Bob Glaub or maybe a Lakland 55-94 (preferably a "classic") or 55-02.

    Where were you when I had my 55-94 looking for a Lull P5 trade last week :crying:

    The question is "where was the bass" ... I've only had it for 48 hours! Did you end up selling the 55-94?

    After several near misses on trade deals, I've still got this beauty.

    Lorenzini, I'll record some sound clips for you today. Anyone else who'd like to hear this bass, shoot me a PM and I'll send you some sound clips later today or tomorrow.

    Other partial trades I'd consider:

    Demeter preamps
    G&L L2000 or L2500
    MM Sterling 4 string
    Flea Bass 4 or 5
    Modulus VJ

    This bass is sold.

    BTW, for those of you searching to try to estabish value, it really doesn't seem like this bass is worth $1700. Resale value on the Lulls seems to be relative low. The trade that took this bass checks in under the $1500 mark.
