    I traded a Lull M5 away about two years ago - for a really nice Pentabuzz. It was a very fair trade, but I've always missed that bass. It was one of the few M5's that Mike built with Aero pickups - which are my preference.

    Well, I saw the bass show up for sale and it will be coming back home next week. This one was on my top five list of basses I wanted back.

    I really like that black five with the blocks. Sweet!

    Nice pics, Tim! I hope you'll get your Lull sooner than planned. Out of the pics you've posted, this one really caught my eye. A Lull PJ5 is the #1 bass on my GAS list. And after seeing this pic, I want a PJ5 in the same top/finish, plus a matching headstock and a rosewood fingerboard.

    My M5V is a killer gigging bass; -and it sounds killer on the tracks I've used it on. My bandmates are always praising it's tone. And to top it all off, Mike Lull is a wonderful person to work with.

    Glad to hear that you're getting so much mileage out of your M5V, and you are absolutley correct....Mike is one of the greatest guys to work with. I should be receiving some brown boxes from him over the next few weeks....CAN'T WAIT!!! :hyper: :D

    I'll be watching for pics, Jay! :)

    Oh yeah, my M5V is logging in lot's of gig miles; and I can't seem to put it down at home either! :bassist:

    You know who I'm calling for my PJ5 when I'm ready.:) It'll most likely be a custom order, -unless you have one on hand that I won't be able to resist!:D

    Yes. Some of the best playing necks out there. These things are "rawkers" too!! Some of the grittiest, growliest tones I've ever heard from a bass!!
     

  17. mmmmmmmmm

    I had just emailed Lull to ask if I could get a birdseye board without dots . . . looks like I can!!! I'm thinking olympic white with matching headstock, birdseye board with no dots, tort guard, 3 band EQ!

    I really like them. I like the Duncans I have in the black one as well. Can't say one is better than the other, just different. The Duncans definitely have a more "vintage" vibe.

    S'all good!!
