Alright we get a part 2 now!!!!!!
Just had to post it coz it looks sick and I'm going for the "2" theme lol!!!
On to the next one. And, it only took five years to get through the first thread.
Here's to another five more!
Havent pulled the Wal out for about 2 months...i think she is lonely
Holy cow, that thing is gorgeous.
I messed up the redirect in the first club thread. It's fixed now. Sorry about that guys.
she does look lonely... perhaps your should either adopt another one to keep her company for those long periods of loneliness or give her to a family that will her company
awesome wood btw!
I kinda did buy a girl to keep her company....but different species. Just got her 2 days ago and have already taken it to a vintage expert for a clean bill of health...100% orig but the bone nut! Should be getting a written estimate in the mail soon! I imagine i will eventually add a new MKII to the family.....but i really wanted one of these for a long time.
It looks even better in person!
Yes, sir, it does. And Mike would know. He used to own it.
Thanks for the kind words. She is in need of a good setup, through. I'll probably be having that done towards the end of August. I'll probably snap some better pictures then, too.
Finally getting around to posting a pic of my Wal Brothers...black poly MKI Geddy model and walnut fretless MKII. They were both made in 2000...they are 10 digits apart in serial number. Needless to say, I love them both: the Wal electronics are a world apart from anything else (with perhaps the exception of Alembic---my Stanley Deluxe is also on "another level" from everything else).
The Wals win the contest for cutting through any guitar wall that stands in their way, though. And aggressive aggressive aggressive sound, with or without pick attack engaged. And, IMO, the Wal vibe is just plain super bad asssssss. Cheers!
Fantastic basses gentlemen!
Soon #2535 is coming to me....Have not had one since I sold Jim Isbell #2478...miss that one for sure!!
Guess you went liquid my trading huh? Lol!!
What a lovely pair!!!! Lines on a fretless
lol its cool!! Man a fretless must be cool but must resist all urges.... Hopefully for my pocket sake one doesn't pop up!!! You want a number??
Actually yeah I did, it was a trade plus cash coming my way. Thanks for your concern.

Paul does such amazing work! I think I may be leaning towards getting a new build and parting with my Mk1
Wait is still an estimated long 19 month wait upon receiving a deposit.

Again, if i'm missing anyone on the earlier numbers, please let me know so I can update the list, back tracking the thread Oddio seemed to PM people their numbers so I was unable to recreate the list at its entirety.
If you like to join, please post pics of you bass and let me know that you want a number.
Jaymi, I know you posted your previous Wal up a long while ago, did Oddio ever give you a number? If not post your Wal up when you receive it and let me know if you want one.
I think I was #10
