    Isn't that how much they normally are new? They really want to take advantage of the waiting period I guess... I still want one.

    I think new they are about twice that, so that doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

    really? wow, most of the ones I have seen have been around 4000 or something like that.

    If anyone is listening: christmas is coming up and think of me.

    Wow, that's some nice-lookin' wood. Should have given it a matching headstock. :smug:

    I need it. That thing would satisfy my 4 string gas for a long time, I think.

    I have seen this bass before. JMJ had it and sold it because it was not getting used. Someone else must also need the money.

    i think owning a wal would be really cool and nice. but owning one made specifically for someone and someone like JMJ would be twice coolness.

    I really, really don't like that body shape.

    The wood is pretty good looking, though.

    Don't worry, I've already saved you the pain of having to deal with that body shape. That bass should be arriving at my door on Wednesday!

    Yep, the stars happened to be in perfect alignment last week so when I saw this come up at BNW I had to pull the trigger. At least I hope you'll all sleep better knowing it is owned within the TB family.
