Mike Lull NRT5 Custom. Non reverse Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

Got this recently, but unfortunately I need to raise fund - so this awesome bass is now for sale.

Like new Mike Lull non -reverse thunderbird NRT5 custom.  A piece of art, pure vintage sound.  Very lightweight under 4kg.  Custom 34" scale.  With original hard case. 

In terms of ergonomics, the Thunderbird is similar to other Lull - it feels nicely balance and the design and workmanship are superb.

In terms of tone, the pickups give you that awesome and iconic Thunderbird sound. In don't have my own soundclips but the reverse Thunderbird uses the same pickups as Lull's other Thunderbird basses:


Of course the Mike Lull made the bass to sound as close to the original Gibson Thunderbird ...

...but without the neck dive which the original Thunderbirds are known to have. You can read more about the non-reversed Thunderbirds on the link below:


I'm  based in London.

      Up for sale or trade is my stunning Shuker Single Cut built in Jan 2014. I traded my Conklin Custom for this bass in 2016 with LukeCapon off here. Jon Shuker makes some very high quality basses and this is no exception on the design, fit and finish. A new one of these would set you back around £3k. It is in excellent condition with only minor marks / swirls from playing and comes with a hard case.
      I'm open to partial / full trades. Let’s see what ya' got.
      Alder body with buckeye facings and black veneer between top and body 34" scale currently tuned B to G Angled headstock with buckeye veneer - front and rear Gotoh tuners 7 piece maple / black veneer laminated set neck. 20.5mm deep at 1st fret, 22.5 at 12th, shallow 'C' section Two way truss rod with carbon fibre reinforcement Rosewood fretboard with 26 medium frets and 45mm brass nut Mother of pearl face and side dots Nordstrand Big Split pickups Shuker 3 band preamp: treble, mid cut / boost and mid freq stack, bass, pan, vol (pull passive) Schaller 2000 bridge, set at 18mm string spacing (can adjust from 17 to 19mm) Weight 8.6lbs / 3.9kg

      For sale is my Gould stormbird. 
      There's a couple of dings here and there but good condition otherwise, working as it should. 
      I'm only selling as I need funds to cover  an unexpected bill and a repair on a broken headstock. 
      Based in Leeds, collection preferred.
      Any questions just ask

      For sale is a hand made 5-string by Patrick Koopman (Stevie Vai's guitar tech) in the Netherlands. It weighs in at 3.9 kilos, has a 34" scale, 5-piece maple/wenge graphite reinforced neck, and a rosewood board with 'eye' markers at the 12th fret! 45mm at the nut, an ash body, Bartolini 72MV5K splitable dual coil pickup, with front coil, back coil, series and parallel settings via a rotary switch. Fitted with a Seymour Duncan STC-3M3 3-band preamp, with "slap" setting via pulling out the volume pot. Light weight Schaller carbon fibre/aluminium tuners, ABM Bridge. Spacing is currently set at about 18mm, but is adjustable. Strung with D'Addario EXL170's (45-130).
      It's in excellent condition, apart from a small dent in the lower bout, and filled holes where the original string retainer was, which was replaced by the previous owner. It's beautifully made, and has a huge array of sounds, but I've decided that the neck is just a little too slim for my gorilla mitts! When I first saw a picture of this bass on here a year or so ago, it wasn't for sale. I actually contacted Patrick to see what it would cost to build another with similar specs, and he quoted me 2500-2700 Euros, so what I'm asking for it (which is just what I paid for it) is an absolute bargain for a custom built bass.
      Cash on collection preferred, but I can ship at the buyer's cost. Sorry, but I'm not looking for any trades.

      My new custom made medium scale 4 string P type bass. Built by Robin Manton of http://mantoncustoms.co.uk with a 1 piece ash body, maple neck, hipshot tuners, gotoh bridge, cts pots. The pickups is hand wound by http://www.catswhiskerpickups.co.uk who I also can't recommend highly enough. The build quality is impeccable and the 6 bolt neck, solid bridge, great wood, gives it fabulous sustain and combined with the pickup, great tone.
      2 companies I highly recommend for excellent work at very reasonable prices.
