What a shock, and so very sad.
I'm deeply saddened by this news, Mike was the nicest guy you would ever know, and a luthier of incredible talent. I was by the shop just a month or so back and as always he had some great stories to tell me and we shared a laugh. I first met him in 1976 when he worked at Bandstand East in Bellevue, WA., he sold me a NOS '73 Rickenbacker 4001 - my High School graduation gift. Worked with him a bit of the T4 project and he made this one just for me.
The Bass Community lost someone exceptional, R.I.P. Mike.
Another of the last great Fender replicators is gone. RIP Mike.
Truly one of my bass heroes is gone
Mike made at least 4 basses for me, all different, all to my specs over the last 7 years. I loved pretty much everything he created, but especially these. Met him in person at NAMM a couple of times, and always seemed genuinely interested to listen to whatever I had to say about his basses. Such a loss. RIP.
Wow so sad. Rest In Peace Mike.
RIP. Thank you for blessing us with your creativity. Your spirit lives on. Condolences to you family.
Rarely on talkbass anymore, but popped in today for some reason. Really sad to hear this.
Does anyone know how old Mike was?
I have a M4V made by him that I cherish.
RIP brother, you will be missed.
What a gentleman and a class act. I called the shop to ask a silly question, after purchasing a bass. Never expecting to bother him personally. They put him on the phone. A super nice guy.
I had a chance to meet him and Bryan Beller a few years ago.....super nice guy
Very sad news. My thoughts are with his loved ones.
Wow. I’ve lost two people I knew in sudden circumstances in the past two months and there’s denial and disbelief at first .
I don't think I can add anything to what's already been said, I feel compelled to add to the chorus. As a Seattle-area resident, he was my go-to guy for everything, from set-ups to defrettings to custom modifications. He was always open and friendly and happy to talk about his work, and I'll always remember the time he toured me around his new workshop with aplomb. RIP, brother, you'll be missed.
So sad to hear this news...RIP Mike Lull!
One of my inspirations...I'm sorry I never had the chance to meet him.
So young still. Heard he had some medical issues and that was why he was not at NAMM but didn't realize it was this bad. So sad.
So sad. His instruments have brought me so much joy over the years. And he was such a nice guy, so friendly and helpful.
Wow, thats terrible he has done some work for me over the years, very sad..
RIP Mike Lull
The most balanced and best "feeling" basses I've ever experienced. I so lusted for the 5 string PJ. 8lbs of perfect balance, not a sharp edge.... never pulled the trigger, wish I would have now.
R.I.P. Mike sir
