Mike Lull Ament Basses Raise Money for 826 Seattle

 

The Mike Lull/Jeff Ament Green Noise JAXT4Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament hand-painted two of his new signature model JAXT4 electric basses, created in collaboration with guitar/bass builder Mike Lull, to auction on charitybuzz.com. The bidding ended January 26, with each closing at $8,501. The funds will benefit 826 Seattle.

Ament and Lull chose the local 826 Seattle, recognizing the need for young people to have artistic outlets.  “Jeff and I are musicians who benefited from any and all arts mentors who were willing to take us on,” said Lull. “826 Seattle does this for every young person who comes through their doors.”

Lull has been fixing and building guitars and basses for 35 years for musicians including Heart, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Mother Love Bone, Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, Queensryche, and national acts such as Bon Jovi, Randy Jackson, Bob Dylan, and others. Visit mikelull.com.
