    Hello,
    I’m on the lookout for a Lull NRT4 incase anyone in the club is considering selling one, I also have this sweet Lakland PJ in Sherwood Green to trade towards one if you’re interested.
    Thanks

    Breathing new life into an unusually bright sounding passive Lull PJ (alder rosewood) buy adding a Nordstrand P and Big Split wired in series with a Nordsrand 2 band pre in series (passing the balance pot).

    Been a while but had to share the greatness of the man-mike lull- custom build T5 20% upsized. Satin ice blue metallic- 10.6 lbs of mahogany... put it up next to my T5 standard lull- puts it in perspective- I’m 6’3” so it’s just a dream fit-

    I have a T5 too, and love the thought of an oversized one - but I'm nowhere near 6 feet tall so that would probably just make me look like a little kid, ha! Congrats!

    Right. It looks like a regular size bird on me- my white T5 just looks too dinky- going to be really hard to go back now, that’s why I’m pretty sure I’ll list it soon..

    I love the reverse headstock on it, and the color.

    What is the scale length on that thing? The usual 35"?

    I'd believe 37". LOL

    Just looks killer Brother...
    Do they sound different with the over sized body? If I'm not mistaken I believe Mike mentioned a tonal difference with them as well.

    I've tried numerous PJ-5's and I just did not like what I was hearing.. I finally picked up a PJ-5 with an Aguilar P and Dual Coil in the bridge position and I finally love what I'm hearing.. I don't like the P on a 5 by itself and the Dual Coil seems to mellow it out and has more variety of tones for me...

    It’s a 35” scale- just perfection as far as playability, balance, tone- only the body is larger-

    The Dual coil or Big Split do add a whole different vibe compared to a J back there I agree.

    This was my experience as well the one time I played a P4 with a DC in the bridge.
    To my ears, there was far less of a volume drop when the blend was centered and less of the mid-scoop you get with a typical PJ setup.
    Whether it was the P, both or bridge, it maintained a full and present tone from front to back.
