    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.

    The holy grail... Pardon me while I figure out how much I can sell my redundant organs for.

    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!
