So Ive always been interested in getting one, I love their tone, but never looked into actually getting one until recently. I contacted them directly, and turns out to get one built it's $9000 and a 2 year wait. That's insane!!!!! I mean what are these basses made out of? They are thousands more expensive than MTD basses, and there is NO WAY Wal's are better than those. MTDs are of the highest quality instruments you can get. Anyone have any clue as to why these Wal's are so outrageously expensive?
