  1. Mike Lull M5V burst/tort/RW REDUCED TO £1400

    BC mods - this is not a bump. Has to be said. Incredibly, I am getting lowball offers on this. £1200 is the price for this bass, and that's it. I have genuinely never been more depressed by buyers' immaturity and entitlement. Please stop taking the piss.

    Hope this works. I am very old... https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

    Lots of predictable interest at this nutty price. Some issues because of site revamp. PMs replied to (no more email notifications, so apologies for delay). Also, photos gone missing from thread, so will try to repost ASAP.
  4. Mike Lull M5V burst/tort/RW REDUCED TO £1400

    Reduced to £1200 for rapid sale. To reiterate some of the points I made in the original ad: If you want this couriered, you need to arrange that yourself please. I will not modify this bass to your demands. This is an utterly insane price for probably the best Jazz 5 I've ever played. If it doesn't go soon I'll withdraw it - because this process has pissed me off considerably. Thanks.

    Up. Any reasonable offer considered.
  6. Mike Lull M5V burst/tort/RW REDUCED TO £1400

    Bump and REDUCED TO £1400.
  7. Aria Pro II SB Elite II Fretless

    I have an identical fretted model which I put up for sale on BC a few years ago for a similar price, thinking it was an Elite II I was promptly ripped a new one by the Aria cognoscenti, who disagreed that it was an Elite II, describing it instead as a Korean-made SB SLT. IIRC the non-recessed jack was described as some kind of giveaway.

    Back up.

  10. Withdrawn! 1978 fender jazz bass

    This was mine for many years. I bought it from Andy's in Denmark St in 2003-ish, and had the Allparts body put on by a luthier in Putney. It's a four bolt body, but he made it work by filling two holes and drilling a new one. It really does sound fantastic. I had it set up by Charlie Chandler a couple of years ago and the techs couldn't stop playing it.

    Bumpage. Reasonable offers considered.
  12. Mike Lull M5V burst/tort/RW REDUCED TO £1400

    The first reasonable cash offer, backed by reasonable buyer conduct, will secure this fine, American, glorious instrument. Thanks
  13. Mike Lull M5V burst/tort/RW REDUCED TO £1400

    Sunday bump for this outstanding (and, may I say, extremely reasonably priced) bass. Just to reiterate what the ad says, I am not interested in trades and if you need a courier, you will need to arrange and pay for it yourself please.

  15. It is with great regret that I have to put this on the market. Unfortunately, it seems one side of my flat is falling down and I'm going to need a lot of cash to sort it. Not interested in trades thanks - this is sale only. Bought from Chris B of this parish in May, this is without doubt the best Jazz 5 I've played (and I've played a few). Specs are as follows: - 35” neck - Alder body and Maple neck with Brazilian Rosewood fretboard - Seymour Duncan Custom Shop pickups - Aguilar OBP-3 SK/PP preamp, currently running at 18v (we think it can do 9v as well) - 21 frets - 19mm spacing @ bridge - nut width 1 7/8” - weight is 8lb 11oz (3.96kg) - Includes the original Mike Lull semi-hard case (much like the Sadowsky one) Controls are: - Volume (pull for passive option) - Pan pot - Middle (pull for frequency shift (400/800 Hz)) - Stacked bass and treble (bass at the bottom) I was put off 35" scale for a while by another bass, but this one completely restored my faith. It has an option for the B string of through-body or conventional bridge stringing. It is almost shockingly light for a fiver (as many Lulls are). The neck is a peach, and the fretwork is the best I've ever encountered. Its condition is completely unchanged since I bought it - in fact it hasn't left my flat. It is not perfect and has some dints and scrapes, although nothing really visible from the front. The only change is new DR nickelwounds. I'd easily put this up against an NYC Sadowsky - I prefer the more rounded feel of it, as well as the preamp. Link to Chris's original ad, including pics here (hope you don't mind Chris): [url="http://basschat.co.uk/topic/303864-sold-mike-lull-m5v-jazz"]http://basschat.co.u...e-lull-m5v-jazz[/url] I am looking to get back the £1600 I paid for this, but very near offers will be considered because I'm looking for a rapid sale. Collection preferred (and of course welcome to try), but you're also welcome to arrange your own courier. EDIT NOW £1400 Thanks.
