How much is a Wal on average?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Circus, Oct 30, 2003.


  1. I know that these are probably one of the best basses in the world, and if you have to ask, its too much, but on average how much do these cost? I can't really seem to find a price anywhere. (no one likes to sell em)

    $2K+++ easily new... i've seen as low as $1100 out of ignorance or in desperation. generally $1500-2000 used though. worth it? if you can dish out that much bread for a bass, i think you'd be hard-pressed to find abetter one overall.

    For a 4 string Wal......around 2600 pounds sterling. That's the list price from Wal. I once inquired, and got an excel spreadsheet document from the owner.

    If you really want to know for sure......

    I think his deal for a new 'Justin Chancellor' model Wal was $3500.00 U.S. Dollars.

    Case and shipping included to anywhere in the United States.

    Used, I've seen from around $1800 to $2200 for Customs (MKI, II, or III), and in the low $1000 ($1300 maybe?) range for Pros. Average. But, likely, somebody who's been hunting for longer will correct me. Just a ballpark.

    I'll attach the pricelist for a new one. I think there may have been a price hike since I received this; I'm not sure.

    BTW, I believe this has been asked before. Just a friendly reminder that the Search is very helpful!
     
  6. I think a Wal is now my holy grail :)

    Wouldn't some of those exotic woods jack the price up a bit? Or should I read the price list first?
     
  8. There's a newer pricelist than this, but the increases were not too significant.
