    Hey guys just wondering what a ballpark price figure is on these basses new. I know a lot depends on the options you get but I am just looking for a ballpark figure.

  2. I heard something about 3000$ new, a while back. Used, I've seen some under 2000$.

    I saw a Wal price list about 1-2 years ago. As I recall, the most basic 4-string model started at over £2,000 GBP.

    Bass Central in Florida ought to be able to help you out with US pricing:

    Keep in mind if you are buying new that they come from England, so you've got the dollar (which has been weak) vs. the pound conversion to deal with. $3600 starting price seems about right - and be prepared for a LONG WAIT.
  6. ordered mine about a year ago at $3500. still haven't gotten it yet and i'm sure its gone up in price due to the high demand. if you do enough digging you can find a used one at a pretty good price. found my 1984 wal here for under $1600.

    don't give up, they're worth the work/wait.
