    I know everyone hates Limp Bizkit so I don't need any "OFF" comments I just thought I would share some pictires of his new bass. I think it's real SCHWEET!

    Any "gay" comments?

    Nice bass BTW, but maybe you should replace the word "gay" with something else.

    Is it the old Wal Pro series (or whatever its called, I dont remember)? The picguard and the wood looks really like it

    This is his second WAL. He owns 2 fours( 1 21 fret & 1 24 fret) and 1 5 string(24 fret)

    Whenever I used to post anything about Sam people would use words such as that and many others.

    This is off the WAL website:
    Custom Wal Mach I. What makes this unusual is the black pick-guard. It gives the impression of an old Pro Series Wal, but with Custom electronics. What else makes this bass special?? It is the current axe of Sam Rivers, bassist for Limp Bizkit. The band is busy writing and recording their latest album, on which Wal Basses will undoubtedly be heard. Other features on this bass include a rosewood fretboard, chrome hardware, and a translucent red finish over flamed maple facings.

    So, then I was half right - but this is just an imitation of a Pro, not a real one :smug: :D

    All I know is that it is a real WAL not a fake one bro.

    Sorry bro I did not mean to offend anyone. I wish I could afford a bass like that but my son is 3 now and all my $$ goes to his new hobbies. Maybe one day my wife will buy it for me--yeaah right!

    That red one in the pics reminds me of Geddy's old red Wal.
