    I own:

    #983, Candy Apple Red P/J5 with rosewood neck
    #953, Sunburst M5V with an Audere JZ-3 preamp and rosewood neck

    I recently sold #1014, a V5 with black ash body, maple neck and block inlays.

    I bought 983 and 953 two years and they've been the mainstays of my arsenal. I've had numerous other basses come and go, but they'll never leave the collection.


    I'll be glad to run the club list if you want to join.

    I got an e-mail from Roger in response to my invitation:

    Thanks Ron!

    If you would be so kind to add to the thread that we now have a Plek Pro machine. The Plek is a computerized fret leveling machine that levels fret to .001mm accuracy. We now Plek every new instrument and offer this service to all Lull owners.

    Ron, thanks for getting this going. If I can be of any help, please pm me.

    M5V #967. Swamp ash body, honey burst finish, rosewood fingerboard, Bartolini 59CBJD pickups, 18 volt Aguilar OBP-3 preamp.

    Funny thing: It was bought as a backup to my Roscoe SKB3006. After it's first gig, it's been my #1 bass. :bassist:

    BTW, Mike just ran my bass through his Plek machine. It was always a sweet player, now it's action is out of this world! IMO the Plek fret job is worth every penny and then some.

    Hey Guys, quick question. I have a Lull on the way. It is going to be a PJ5 with Aggie Pre, Maple board, and J pickup in the 70's position. Anybody else have this pickup placement and what do you think as compaired to a 70's styled jazz?

    Sweet set up man!
     
  15. Tim, that bass is gorgeous! IMO it's truly hard to get a transparent black stain just right between "gray" and "too dark to see the wood figuring", but I've consistently seen Lull as one of the top-tier builders to get it perfectly done. :)

    Can I join? I've got #589, Modern 5 in transparent amber, swamp ash body with a flame maple top, birdseye maple fretboard, black hardware, controls in the "diamond" layout, and Aero Type 1 pickups (as opposed to the standard custom Lull Basslines or custom-order Fralin or Bart pickups, which Roger told me is one of only 4 or 5 they built with Aeros - I dig 'em to death. :D )

  16. I'm in! I've got #1217, it's an M5V in candy apple red w/ matching headstock, alder/rosewood, basslines pickups and Aguilar preamp.

    Man, these are awesome. I am surprised they are not more talked about on Talkbass.

    I'm in with a pair of Lull's

    The first is an M5 #1128
    Trans Black ash Quilt Maple Top, Maple Board, BL pickups and Bart Pre

    The second is an M5V #1193
    Natural alder, Maple Board, BL Hum Canceling Pickups, Agi Pre

    With the M5V being a JJ or PJ convertible with a quick connect system. Actually, I have not heard of another JJ or PJ Lull other then this one. But maybe one is out there.

    I love both basses and the fact that I only own three (the other being a 72 Fender) tells you a bit about me Lull mania.

    Photo's to come

    Man I lost count what club member does that make me?
