    Found the last piece of the puzzle over the weekend - a used Stingray 5HH. I've been hit or miss with them in the past since the ones I tried seemed to be a bit "edgy" to my ears, but the one I got go edgy yet mellow out quite nicely. And I've found very few basses whose slap tone I like as much as a 'Ray's.

    So now, my arsenal consists of the basic tones:

    Mike Lull PJ5 - for my Precision needs
    Mike Lull V5 - for my Jazz tones
    Mike Lull M5V - my active Jazz (with Audere JZ3 preamp)
    Ric 4003 - an '86 Mapleglo with black trim
    Stingray 5HH
    Pedulla Thunderbass 6 - for the really "modern" tones
    Roscoe LG3005 Fretless - with Nordstrand Dual Coil pickups.
  2. no fretless?

  14. can i be the one to say your missing a PJ, a Gibson of some kind (Tbird!!) and maybe a hollow body or acoustic!
    But still, nice collection...

    Oh, and a 6 or 7 strings, just for those moments where you wish you could play jazz...

    Mike Lull PJ5 is a PJ configuration.

    As far as the Tbird goes, I'll wait until a used Lull 5-string version shows up.

    Don't have much interest in a hollow body or acoustic. But I have an Engelhardt double bass.

    The Pedulla's a sixer. ;)
  16. Quite the line up!!
