NBD - Mike Lull
« on: December 31, 2017, 07:38:33 AM »
New Mike Lull arrived end of last week.  Oversized NRT5, satin black.  It sounds totally different to the JAXT4 I own. Very happy.

I'm finding myself being drawn to satin black more and more.

The only immediate downside with the Lull satin finish is that it feels a little like suede for a while; my old JAX took a month or two of use to kind of knock it back a bit so it was smooth in the right areas (forearm bout, back of body).  The upside is that (on the JAXT4) it's been extremely knock resistant.  I've had a couple of oh, f*** moments where I'm thinking I'm going to have to get a Sharpie out, but not even a mark on it.

Almost anything can have drawbacks, but I think I'll always find satin black appealing.

My 2004 USA Music Man SUB Sterling has the textured matte black finish. 13 years and the body is still flawless despite knocking it against stuff a number of times. I did manage to put a ding in the top of the headstock.
