Mike Lull NRT4 / NRT5 Bass Guitars
The classic non-reversed T-Bird style bass takes “the thunder" to a whole new level! The NRT4 has deep and huge tones reminiscent of that 70’s grunt we all know and love but with a twist of extra sweetness and articulation. This unique tonal difference was accomplished by Mike reverse engineering a set of 1964 T-Bird pickups while adding his own take to the design creating truly earth shattering bassaliciousness! The NRT4 and NRT5 share the same specifications as the T4 and T5, but with the vintage-style non-reversed body shape.
And here’s another perk — no headstock dive! Yes the original 'Birds had headstocks that just loved to dive to the floor when hands were taken off the bass, Mike has aleviated this issue while at the same time dramatically lowering the weight making the bass’s overall ergonomics much friendlier to the player.
The NRT5, Mike’s five string version of our NRT4 bass, gives you all the monster sounds of the NRT4 but with the added low ‘B’ for when you just gotta get that stomach rumbling low down dirty thump only achievable with that fifth string humming away to your touch. With the ‘B’ string thru-body effect you get a true full sound with no loose-string-rattle feel.
