Same thing happened to me. Bought an '82 MKI because at the time it was so hard to get an MKII
Finally got the MKII and sold the MKI 2 years later and i totally regret it. So dont sell it. They sound exactly the same. The only difference was the extra frets (which 99% of the time dont get used) and horn length.
Even though there was 20 something years between build dates on those 2 Wals...the neck played and felt the same.
I have a line on a MKI (fretless) that was born a fretted....think im going to "pull the trigger" and have talked to FBass' service guy about putting in some frets for me. Quote was cheap too (under $400). I have posted this pic before....
