  3. All that purple is Purpleheart right? If so thats the brightest, pinkest Purpleheart I've seen. Definately a nice bass, but not my cup of tea.

    Err... sweet? It's a nice colour, if you don't mind the queer looks that you'll get afterwards ;)
     
  10. That's a very unwaly looking Wal, for sure, and it's subject for a heated debate on the Wal yahoo group. Personally I prefer the Mach I body shape, and darker wood facings when it comes to Wals, but that one sure is unique. In a good way.
     
  11. I just think it is very Radical...

    My Fav Wals are prolly these

    Is not that bad........only that I don´t like too much purple/pink. I rather have some "traditional" Wal in my hands.
     
  13. Thats gorgeous! lol! The dude who posted - loooks like something Billy Sheehan would own - I second that!
    Thanks

  14. Every time I see a Wal, I think, "...now there's a nice lookin' instrument." And I think...I really should give them another shot. It's the same with a Ric for some reason. Every Wal I've ever played has been ungodly heavy (I'm sure there's one out there that's not)...butevery time I get onstage with one, (after convincing myself that I understand that whacky electronics package)...I get like a deer in the headlights., trying to find a workable sound - "alright, was I supposed to pull up on the volume knob...nope...that sounds like crap...or was it to hit this switch...nope..."
     
  15. I just treat the wals elecys as a mixing desk strip it u spply that logic then u cant go far wrong :)
     
  16. You bastards gave me Wal GAS again!

    ARRRRRRGH!

    Aesthetically, the hardware and pickups are some of the best I've ever seen. The tasteful accents of gold on the black are just phenomenal, something I've always thought would be really attractive on a natural finish -- and it sure seems to be. It's definitely most attractive on the purpleheart in the first post and the quilted walnut one that Zenbass posted.

    One more note on the visuals of the basses -- I LOVE the necks. The centre block of maple, two purpleheart strips, and then the wings in flamed maple? I LOVE it. Is that standard on Wal basses? The fretless six with the pale orangey red finish seems to have it too. Great looking feature, that is.
