23 kilos in the case , that's 46 lbs.
i wonder if you can play it sitting down without losing the blood circulation in your right arm ?
Don't you mean right leg? For that matter, who would ever play that thing standing up?
That seems awfully heavy even for a doubleneck... maybe JT can comment.
looks like the one that Jonas used to own... Funny there isn't even a mention of him in that eBay post.
Most people would take it out of the case before playing it.
Somebody should ask the seller what the bass weighs alone, though.
I have one and it weighs right around 20 pounds.
If I had the extra cash it would be a great bass to have. Just for fun. Jonas Hellborg is the only person I've heard that had one.
I think that the 46 pounds includes the case as well. So having an elephant haning on your shoulder for 3 hours would be bad enough, but this would only be a 3 year old elephant not a fulll grown one
This reminds me perfectly of the John Mclaughlin and Jonas Hellborg duets, where Jonas does some killer chord work and slapping on a Wal double neck just like that. PLUS a midi input, wow, if I had the cash I'd pick that up.
Since you have one, I'll ask you; If there's the same amount of strings on each neck, and the pickups look the same under each set of strings, and the bridges are the same, the only thing I've noticed is that one neck looks a little more slender than the other. So my question is, what do you have different between the two necks. Tuning, only?
One's fretted, one's fretless...
Oh, man!!! I now have some SERIOUS GAS! Thanks for the explaination! Does it come in a 5-string?
I got rid of my Wal Mach 1 mainly for weight reasons. I couldn't imagine lugging TWO of them around together.
There is at least one of them out there!!
THAT's a beauty! ...but I can only agree with Sufenta, that I'll bet that I will have to have neck and back surgery if I buy one! I suppose that sitting would be okay... Everything you want right there at your fingertips.
