NBD: Mike Lull PT4 P Bass with T'Bird pickups

Recommended Posts

I've just picked up a mint condition Mike Lull PT4 which is basically a P Bass with Mike Lull Gibson Thunderbird-style pickups. I was fortunate enough to own a Mike Lull Jazz bass for a while and forgot just how amazing the build quality is. They are absolutely perfectly put together and the quality of the parts is amazing.

This is Mahogany bodies with a lovely orangey brown tint to it. It weighs in around 9lbs but if anything feels lighter.

Very happy :) apologies for the awful pics. I'll take some better ones shortly

I noticed that had disappeared off the Bass Direct website, good work Nick!

Those pickups always sound lovely when I hear them on sound clips.

Very cool bass, absolutely love my Lull's :)

Lull pups surely, not Gibson?

Correct. Badly worded on my part and now edited :)

Apparently reversed engineered from a set of 1964 Thunderbird pickups.

Flats?

Absolutely :) it's currently got La Bella Flats on it but the E and A strings sound a bit too thuddy to my ears. I'll get some TI's on it ASAP

Well these Lulls are addictive. I'm having a clear out to make was for my new one. It's a Lull V4 Jazz and as always the craftsmanship is out of this world.
