I've always been a fan of D'Addario nickels on mine.
I like Light-Light Sunbeams on my P4. Nice low tension and warm tone.
One odd things is that I've really liked TI Flats on all the basses I've tried them on except my P4. Just didn't seem to bring the best out in the bass. Thinking of giving them another try though.
DR’s for me. I like the Fat Beams, and Pure Blues. I tried some Fender flats for a short moment - tone was fine, but tension was lame. All my Lull’s have had the T-bird style pickups, some in the P position (for what it’s worth
I'm a flats fiend. Tried most of them, and nothing like a good P with flats (IMO).
Current favorites include the EBMM Cobalt Flats, Sadowsky Blue Labels, and Labella Flexible Flats (TIs on a budget).
For rounds, I’ve liked DR Sunbeams and DR Nickel Lo-Riders on my P4’s. I’ve tried others, but always come back to those; primarily the Lo-Riders.
DR have lower tension feel.
Daadsario are staples.
I actually like sadowsky nickels...
All giod...bigger question is steel vs nickel. Nickel feels better....and us easier on the frets. Steel sounds much brighter and snappier..bit rough on fingers when they are first put in.

unfortunately, this one is now on the market. nothing wrong with the bass, just the owner.
For Sale - 1 of a Kind - Mike Lull P4 30"scale with Bisonic/Darkstar
Oh my, Mike makes the best short scale I have ever tried
I am so glad to hear that you think his short scale basses are the bomb. I saw that one come up and didn't move fast enough. I just put a deposit down for a PJ4-30 - And now begins the wait. Any other Lull short scale players out there that want to chime in?
I'm looking for a P4. Must have jazz neck and must be no heavier than 8 lbs.
Rosewood board preferred.
I'm not normally a short scale guy...But I really like Mikes short scales...
I'm thinking about a fretless with big singles.
If anyone has a Lull Jazz or PJ, I am selling/trading one of my Roscoe LG 5 Customs. PM me please.
For Sale/Trade - 2005 Roscoe LG Custom 5
Just received this beastly P. It's a UP4 from 2008 with anodized pickguard. Can't find the specs anymore on Mike's website, but I believe the difference with the P4 is that this has the pre-CBS specs and neck radius.
I played a wonderful Lull V4 for years, but lately I only play Precisions in my band, so when selling the V4, someone offered me this as a trade. Very happy with the deal. The wide neck takes some getting used with it's 44 mm nut, but the neck feels wonderful and the playability is excellent. The sound is absolutely great. Very deep articulate P growl, and a rich tone. Amazing from such a light bass. This feels so much better than the Fender American vintage basses I've tried.
Congrats, that's a rare bass! Mike didn't make a lot of those. Here's the specs:
February 21, 2008
Mike Lull Custom Guitars has introduced an Ultra-Vintage series of Jazz and P-style basses. These basses have a twenty fret necks with a traditional 7-1/4" radius fingerboard. The UV4 comes only with a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard while the UP4 is available with Brazilian Rosewood and Birdseye Maple fingerboards. Swamp Ash or Alder bodies are available on both models.
The Ultra-Vintage series have passive electronics and use custom wound Lindy Fralin pickups for a tone from an earlier era.
Thanks for the info! Do you know why he stopped making them?
I assume it was lack of demand. One less fret and a different fingerboard radius are pretty subtle differences for the upcharge, and Mike's standard P4 is such an incredible bass.
So the folks over the shop are redoing the Mike Lull website.
The new signature models from both Bryan and I will be on there.
More stuff coming in the both the 35" and 30" realms...Cheers
Sweet. Need to sell or trade my Roscoe for a PJ.
When Mike first dropped them from the price list, he would still take orders for them. That may no longer be the case, but I bet it is...
Like Prog Rock?
All recorded with a Lull
Yes and yes!
Great point Greg, Mike will build pretty much anything you want!
