    Just putting this out there as a feeler.
    Picked up a amazing 1985 Wal MK1 fretless, a while back.
    Wenge facings
    Unlined ebony fingerboard.
    Wal HSC.
    This bass is everthing I was looking for in a Wal.
    Just setup, new strings, (TIJF344 flats)
    Plays and sounds like no other fretless I've owned.
    Why would I let it go?
    I need to replace my 1966-Bound-Dot-neck Jazz.
    So I offer this Wal, for a 1965-1966 Fender Jazz Bass.
    Must be original, no refinishes, or other mods.
    I may come to my senses, and pull this add at any time.
    Email me at lightgypsys@gmail.com for pictures.

    If you go to the bass guitar section here in TB. ( Wal Club)
    Go to page 12, Zentner posted some pictures of my bass.
    Never took it out of my house since I got it a few months ago.
    It is in great shape.

    Here are pics for those who are "click lazy!!"

    Mojo-man, Hope you find what your looking for! I could very well be wrong, but IMHO it's easier to find a vintage fender then a fretless Wal.....even one you thoroughly enjoy!!

    I hear you my brother.
    It would have to be the right Fender, for me to consider letting this go.
    This bass is something special.

    I have had a few questions about trades.
    As I said before a 1965-1966 Fender Jazz Bass.
    Also i would consider, a USA MTD 534 5-string with the right wood combo.
    It would have to be a 34" scale USA MTD.

    I'm sure your 535 is sweet.

    Don't do it man! Dot neck jazz basses are way easier to find than Wal basses!

    Right now no.
    I would rather trade, if the right bass came my way.
    But through me a number, who knows ???

    If I buy the bass, Will I instantly sound like Mick Karn and have to shave my eyebrows? Lol.

    Added another trade.

    Will consider a USA Lakland Decade, / Darkstar pickups.
    Prefer passive pickups.
    I would need the Lakland and some cash on your end?

    I loved this bass while I had it, but eventually needed to let it go to fund my Carl Thompson.

    Earlier in the year, I had the opportunity to buy a fretted Wal, and though I love my CT, I was definitely missing this old fretless. Someone's going to LOVE this bass!

    Man I wish this had fret lines. Not sure I am ready for an unmarked fret board. Beautiful bass!
