    Hey everybody, I have decided the next bass I am going to part with is my absolutely gorgeous Fretless six string Wal. I had this bass custom ordered in 2017 with several upgrades including:
    - matching headstock cover
    - matching control cavity cover
    - protective high gloss coating
    - ebony stringers in the neck for great stability.

    This bass features a Mahogany core with maple accents and breathtaking Wenge facings.
    A maple neck with an ebony fretboard. The fretboard has very minimal wear from roundwound strings. I mostly played it with La Bella Tapewounds as seen in some of the pictures. Aside from the minimal wear on the fretboard, the bass is almost Mint. In some of the pictures you can see the bass is wearing hipshot tuners. It currently has more rounded glossy Schaller tuners which I think look and feel much better.

    The bass weighs 11 pounds and is incredibly comfortable when strapped on or when seated. These Mk3 body shapes can literally set on your lap and you can let go without having the headstock dive. One of the best ergonomically shaped basses I have ever played.
    The bass sounds and feels just as good as it looks. Paul at Wal headquarters even agreed that this one really sings. I am only considering selling this bass because of medical issues and bills. If I can’t get the asking price out of the bass, I just assume keep it.
    A new build spec’d out just as this one will cost you around $13,500 and a four year build time. That’s before import fees and shipping. Save yourself the wait time and hassle with one already here in the states.
    Comes with a very durable, fitted Hiscox case.

    Bank transfer preferred.
    I will cover shipping and insurance within the U.S.
    Any questions please feel free to ask.

    When i ordered my fretted version I specified on the order sheet that i wanted this bass but with frets. I decided to also go with satin finish as i love the feel of wenge and didn't want to lose that but i hope mine looks at least 3/4 as good as this absolute masterpiece. About 2 years to go for mine. This is the best looking bass in the World IMO and i can imagine it would probably be one of the nicest sounding aswell...truly! GLWTS I hope all is well. All the best.
