    Where can I purchase a Walkabout? Are there any sites or is it all underground?

    Check classifieds here. Good used wb's here much less than buying new somewhere. Most still have some warranty left on them.

    You can also check out the dealer locator on the mesa website.

    Sweetwater on-line is a good source.

    Mesa is pretty selective about its retailer (they didn't allow any internet sales until somewhat recently, as far as I know). They have 'fixed pricing' (no retailer discounts), and try to have a single retailer in each major market to reduce competition among retailers.

    Nice retail strategy IMO. On-line, Sweetwater is a GREAT source. Great service and support, and again, prices are fixed with Mesa anyway, so as good a deal as anywhere else.

    Lot of dealers have dropped Mesa. From what I hear, most of the beef stems from their handling of warranty and repair issues.

    GC and Mesa had a longstanding battles over this, with GC being Mesa's largest dealer by far, and ultimately Mesa walked.

    Keep looking and you'll find em!!
