I'm fine with it. Will keep me away from doing something crazy.
Yes, at those prices one has to wonder if they are going after the collector market vs the actual playing gigging musician. I scratch my head...maybe Paul is cashing out??
Still love em bunches tho
Hey does anyone know of a 5 string MK2 for sale? I am looking...
It’s not going to stop me... plenty of time in 26 months to save up the earnings. Still worth every penny.
Not sure why it's a surprise..... I work for power controls company and every vendor we use raises prices every year 5-15%.... market, cost of living, etc. Why should we expect a small shop builder to be any different. As far as who is their target market.....its too small of a shop to cater to a particular market. Thats why there is a used market. Nothing like spec'ing your own build though.
Same here, I work in diesel industry and everything goes up in price every year, sometimes every 6 months.
That's so cool! Thank you for sharing!
I've seen a bootleg video on YouTube from the Presto Tour 89-90 (gawd am I that old?) California maybe! Where Geddy uses what I thought was a black 4 string Mk1 with a natural headstock and perhaps an unfinished neck but he also uses his regular black Wal. Can anyone confirm?
Look around 20:53
Looks around at the sight and sounds...
The black Mk1 with natural neck made many appearances. It was a back up.
On the show with Mr Big, Billy plays it in the encore. Theres actually many pics of Geddy using that one.
But after having a convo with the former Bass Centre manager, I'm not sure if the 2nd black Mk1 was a loaner like the white one he had for one show but never used. The Black one hung around longer.
All true regarding price increases across markets. The trouble is when your personal salary only gets bumped between 3-3.5% each year. A bit of a spread there...
Question: If you place your deposit today does that lock in the final sell price at today's rate, or does that just hold your place in the queue and the final invoice amount is based on whatever the current sell price is at that (future) time?
Or, to put it another way: If you put a deposit on a new Wal ~2 years ago, will you have to pay the additional £250 from yesterday's increase?
As I unders
As I understand it, your initial deposit locks in your price at the time the deposit is placed, i.e., you won't have to pay for future increases.
yes it locks your rate for the build. however the caveat to that is if you change or add any options to you spec after a price increase, the price of that option will reflect current rate; i.e. black/gold hardware, ebony on fretted, polygloss finishes, etc.
so if anyone has an "inkling" of getting a build, i suggest throwing a deposit sooner rather than later. been preaching this for years now it seems. lol
Sign up for better paying gigs or working bands. My paycheck doesn't buy my Wals, my gig money does.
Spec out everything you want now that way its price is locked in at todays rate, even if you think you may eliminate the option sometime during the build. As Kulit said, if you try adding options later you'll pay whatever the price is at that time.
I was doing great on reducing my collection and selling off instruments I don't use anymore, then this shows up on TB. Recently purchased from BWorm, gorgeous Honduran Mahogany facings and under 10lbs. Couldn't say no to this one, I tried to talk myself out of this for a week.
Congratulations on owning one of the prettiest Wals I have seen!
This one was just posted to reverb.com I doubt it lasts long at that price...
WAL 5 | Robert´s Basses
I just saw that one while browsing through Reverb a few minutes ago, that shedua top looks spectacular.
There's also a 1988 Wal Pro for sale on Reverb. Surprised to see it's been up for months.
Nice one indeed...in Germany too...curious
.. anyone know if this government shutdown is affecting basses going through customs? Anyone expecting a bass from overseas here or got one in the past week or two?
rogerbmiller said he's looking for a Mk2 5... well there ya go!
Nice that it already has the new Schaller light weights installed.
This just popped up, not sure on the price.
That means it’s located in Vancouver. Mr. Reimer is a highly respected luthier in this area.
