    any wal guru or knowledgeable folks out there... kinda a noob need more info... looking to buy a bass SOON! :hyper: mad tax money :hyper:
     
  2. I hope you have some serious cash. Used Wal's go for around 3000 USD. They're also a bit of a rare sight in the US, though Bass NW or Bass Central will have one in stock every once in a while.
    There are a few very knowledgable folks around here that have owned (sometimes several) Wal's. Walbassman is one that comes to mind.

    If you want one soon, I would recommend looking for one used since there is an unusually long wait for them. OTOH, there is also speculation that new Wals may not be rolling off the 1 man assembly line for much longer.

    Go to Walbasses.com for fun links.

    There are also a few available on ebay.

    I currently own 7. I'm not sure if that makes me a guru or even knowledgeable, but I'd be happy to take a shot at any questions that you might have.

    Best!

    Maynard, I just PM'ed you with info on two different Wal-specific discussion groups. Those are great places to start. If you are patient and keep your eyes open, you can find good deals. I picked one up a little over a month ago. I got a "Geddy Lee" Mk II for $1700 shipped. This isn't a typical price, but it does show how patience can pay off.
