    Hello,
    I'm selling my five string Wal. Here are the specs:
    W3641
    Born Oct 1993
    Mahogany core
    Sported Sycamore facings
    Maple Hornbeam neck
    Indian Rosewood fretboard
    Trans Blue Polyester finish
    Ships in SKB flight case

    There are two dings that one of the previous owners put on the bass, sadly. There's a small chip in the headstock on the side and near the input jack there's a rather big ding that seems to be only in the polyester finish, however, looking at the input jack it's pretty darn noticeable....from face on you can't really see it. Neither of these affect playability or sound. It still sounds and plays like a Wal. Pics below
    I love this bass and if there were anyway I could keep it I would. I searched for years and eventually found this bass in Germany and was very happy when I got it. I love how it feels, the sound, and the rather rare color.

    Bass is located in Northern California. Asking $5500 shipped in the conus. More.photos to follow.

    Dammmmmmit! The 5'ver I always wanted since first I saw it 10 years ago on the dudepit, and the moons never aligned for me whenever it came up. I had no idea it finally made it to US soil, especially west coast...killin' me!

    @miskhar: a pic of the electronics and electronic plate cover with spec's is usually ideal on a Wal sale.

    Looks like you're needing a straight sale, but if you happen to be looking for a 4 string MkII I'd have a trade piece, but I think I know the answer already.

    Currently I am looking for a straight sale, otherwise I would've given serious thought to the 4 string Wal and cash. Also, included photos of cavity and plate.
