Submitted on the 25th August 2013 by Marco who purchased a Mike Lull M5V bass

Thank you. But the bass is really perfect. B string is so faaaaaaaaat

IT´s the best sound between 60 and 70 jb I´ve ever heard and had.

It`s so lightweight. I love it.

Submitted on the 24th March 2014 by Arwyn who purchased a Mike Lull PJ4 bass


It was good to put a face to the name / voice when I came to Warwick a few weeks ago. The PJ4 is really a superb bass, the finish is exceptional and the range of sounds using the pan control is unbelievable. What really impresses me is how comfortable it is to play, contoured like a Stratocaster and so light. From my perspective a really good buy.

Congratulations on the new Bass Direct bass made especially for you. In the picture you were wearing a cool Bass Direct polo shirt. Do you actually sell these?

Regards for now, Arwyn

Lull Unveils Tom Petersson Signature Bass

Mike Lull introduced a new Tom Petersson signature bass, the TPT4, at NAMM this year. The TPT4 is based on Lull’s T4, with some tweaking specified by the Cheap Trick bassist.

One of the key differences is the pickup placement. The pickups, made by Lull, are both pushed up closer to the neck: a position that Petersson worked meticulously at to find and achieve his signature sound. Also unique to the TPT4 is a gloss-white finish with gold knobs, pickguard and hardware.

Pricing is subject options that you choose.

Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament Collaborates with

Mike Lull to Create Signature Bass

The Jeff Ament "JAXT4" bass available in January 2012

Long time Northwest guitar and bass builder, Mike Lull, has collaborated with Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament to create the “JAXT4” signature Jeff Ament electric bass. This handmade instrument will be available starting in January and marks the first time any member of the 20-year-old iconic musical group has put their name on an instrument.

“The only bass that plays like a modern handmade machine and sounds like the best vintage Fender or Gibson in the shop,” said Jeff Ament. “I’m honoured to put my name next to Mike’s on this beast. 4 strings!” (Ament’s quote in his own handwriting is included as an attachment).

Capitalising on a 25-year relationship, Lull and Ament worked together closely to create the signature model bass. The bass features a 20% oversized body, but thinner body thickness than standard Mike Lull T4 models, along with a reverse headstock. Jeff Ament personally chose all custom colours, finish, and wood configurations. The JAXT4 comes with a metal (select models only) pickguard engraved with an Ament designed T-bass logo, Jeff’s signature on the headstock along with a special Mike Lull logo designed by Jeff to be used only on his signature model. Included is a custom Ament hardshell case with a hand-stenciled logo on the exterior, along with a bag of assorted Ament custom guitar picks. The JAXT4 is available in these four custom color and wood configuration choices:

  1. Satin black polyester finish w/ chromed aluminium JA pickguard (mahogany body/mahogany neck/rosewood fingerboard)

  2. Satin kerry-green polyester finish w/ solid white plastic JA pickguard (mahogany body/maple neck/maple fingerboard)

  3. Gloss clear polyester finish w/ chromed aluminium JA pickguard (swamp ash body/maple neck/maple fingerboard)

  4. Satin cardinal-red polyester finish w/ solid black plastic JA pickguard (mahogany body/mahogany neck/rosewood fingerboard)

The JAXT4 will be unveiled at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show the weekend of January 19-22, 2012 in Anaheim, California and be available for purchase thereafter.
