    Hello Wal friends I saw Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville posted a used Wal if anyone is interested. Not sure why they listed as a MK2. 6B72E51D-213C-4635-8946-984BA26DFFF0.

    I stumbled across this video last night and got sucked in. The video quality kind of sucks but the audio is pretty good, and there are some JUICY Wal moments.

    I contacted them about it 3 hours after it was posted here, but it had already been sold.

    Nice - looks like a rare "live edge" model!

    Aaah, the Mark Zero Series Wal Bass... beautiful tone and woods but the finishing and ergonomics of the Mk 0 aren’t a patch on the Mk 3. They’re often even heavier than a Mk 2 and can suffer from some neck dive. :thumbsup::roflmao:

    :roflmao: Seriously though. Paul just sent me a pic of the completed body and neck both ready for paint.
    I'm not one that wanted progress pics, rather just a 'show me when its done' kinda guy. But I imangine he sent me the pic to see how I liked the headstock cap to match the body of the chosen ash.

    Going to look great. Yew is such a beautiful and characterful, yet subtle, wood when varnished!

    Struggling with the decision to sell my MKI and try to get a MKII. I love my MKI but think the MKII would be a better fit for me. Dont think I would order a brand new one, so I would need to go used which is like playing wack-a-mole. It would stink if it took a while after selling mine to find one.

    It would totally be like whack a mole. How many 4 string Mk2's have come up over the last two years? ...three?

  18. Yeah, been there done that, but luckily I came out with a 4 string Mk2 since around the start of last year. I hadn't appreciated it until it had been pointed out just now by Caca de Kick, that there hadn't been that many 4 string Mk2s for sale over the past couple of years. I had seen quite a few Mk1s and the odd Mk3 here and there, but almost no 4 string Mk2s. I haven't played a Mk1 or Mk3, but i do see the magic of a Mk2, at least with the one i own

    You might want to add the Mk3 to your list, it's a wonderful bass and my favorite of the 3 models. They aren't more common than the Mk2 but it might increase your chances.
