    Yeah, I gotta admit, they look like they'd have a great tone. I'd love to give one a whirl.

    Always wanted an ampeg scroll bass... Bet it sounds awesome with a P pup!

    Pretty cool finish on that Wal too.

    Heh, and ain't 'Johnson's extremely strange musical instrument company' just a brilliant name? :D
  6. Is that Wal worth $2500 shipped?

    If it was righty, would it be worth that much?

    Probably. The demand for Wals seems to be much higher than the extremely limited supply. I'm not sure what the wait time on one is, but I think it's pretty long.

    From what I hear, they're terrific basses.
