    So I just spent a lot of money on a brand new custom bass and I have this beautiful Wal just sitting around collecting dust. I love this bass but I don't play it nearly enough and I honestly don't like the string spacing on it. The thing sounds amazing and plays great. I just like the feel of 19mm spacing so much and this bass feels too tight for me. Its an MKIII with an amazing Shedua facing, Mahogany core and Rosewood FB. In good condition with some playing wear (email me to see pics). I'm not very forum savvy so these pics are all I was able to upload. If you want full size ones email me. Don't be shy I recently lost my job so throw out an offer. Price Drop 4900 Shipped

    Email me with any questions @ Ian.burneyonbass@gmail.com

    Guess I'll be "that guy": forum rules require that you declare a price. Fabulous Wal, btw.

    That's amazing. It deserves better photos. Try some in natural sunlight.

    Not many IIIs come to market....these are the most comfortable, ergonomic, well-balanced of the bunch...
