    EDIT- before the question gets asked.....open to trade offers for other bass guitars of equal value. Am interested in a nice 4 string fretless. Please note, I am not interested in adding cash for any proposed deal. Cash is king and I greatly prefer a cash sale. I am open to non-bass gear trades. Looking for a nice acoustics guitar (points for Gibson J-45), the "right" Tele, and maybe a nice guitar tube amp too.

    Awesome Mike Lull T4 Thunderbird Bass Guitar. This instrument was made for the Atlanta Bass Gallery in 2009. The instrument is in excellent shape. The only exceptions worth noting would be a few minor scratches/dings on the rear of the bass, in addition to some minor finish cracking near the neck pocket; both of which are too difficult to even show up in pictures. Specs are as follows:

    • mahogany body
    • mahogany bolt-on neck
    • 8.6 pounds
    • Brazilian rosewood fret board, with extreme figuring. (FWIW, Mike Lull can no longer get Brazilian rose wood. That makes this bass a little extra special).
    • 2 Tone Burst
    • fitted G&G hard case
    • 12" fret board radius
    • 1.5 bone nut
    • 21 frets
    • 34" scale
    • graphite reinforced neck
    • Hipshot ultra light tuners w/ D-Tuner

    From Mike Lull's website

    "Mike’s take on the classic T-Bird style bass takes “the thunder" to a whole new level! The T4 has deep and huge tones reminiscent of that 70’s grunt we all know and love but with a twist of extra sweetness and articulation. This unique tonal difference was accomplished by Mike reverse engineering a set of 1964 T-Bird pickups while adding his own take to the design creating truly earth shattering bassaliciousness!

    And here’s another perk — no headstock dive! Yes the original 'Birds had headstocks that just loved to dive to the floor when hands were taken off the bass, Mike has aleviated this issue while at the same time dramatically lowering the weight making the bass’s overall ergonomics much friendlier to the player.

    » Classic T-Bird style with a sweet twist

    » Every Mike Lull instrument is hand-built by Mike himself

    » Built in Bellevue, Washington, USA - Just outside Seattle

    » Every Mike Lull instrument gets a PLEK precision fret-leveling"

    Thx. Me too. Mrs. G4string was NOT happy with this purchase, at all. The sooner this leaves my home, the sooner I can restore balance back to my wife's jaded opinion of me. Haha!!
