  1. Yes indeed, and I am an idiot who did not read a very well written ad..🤣.Its really pretty. GLWTS.
  2. Thats just nit picking. Anyone could make a mistake like that.....😬
  3. That one in the clip is the same colour as mine too- pretty much the same bass right down to the brass truss rod cover. Thanks for the kind words Nik!
  4. Come on folks. This is the bargain of the century. A handmade British bass from the late 70's with top notch workmanship, fixtures and fittings. Yours for only 20% of the price of a Wal or 40% of the price of a BC Rich depending on your preferences. Thats before VAT and duty come into the equation. A no brainer!😂
  5. Its a beaut, and that is a ludicrous price for that kind of quality. Good for you. Enjoy!
  6. Ah..the fretless with the slap plates. A quirky modern classic that. Always wanted one. How much did it set you back if you don't mind me asking?
  7. That was said further up the thread and it didnt really sink in....doh! I've only ever seen him use various fenders/moduli and a Stringray iirc...Ah well, thats star power I suppose...We could try a bit of Popperism here. Can anyone think of a bassists association with a brand of basses leading to vertiginous price rises apart from Wal?
  8. Given the price I'm asking for this, vs. the price of various other -lets face it, quite similar vintage instruments on here at the mo- I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that this bass offers a remarkably cost effective way in to early eighties custom luthery......😉
  9. Congrats. Thats pretty reasonable I think. You never know, if the bass player from Tool starts using Wilkes basses, you could be on to a proper result....🤣
  10. Had a similar problem with the pickup (a Wilkes badged KA). I replaced the circuit with the Doug Wilkes reccomended John East one. Seems to have sorted it and it sounds miles better. Great instruments.
  11. I am sorely tempted, but what with Brexit and the ensuing VAT and duty....beyond my pocket at the mo. Lovely, unusual bass. GLWTS!
  12. The thing is though, it's really only Wal that have experienced these vertiginous price rises....Think of the other UK builders from the same era...Wilkes, already mentioned, Overwater, Goodfellow, Jaydee, Pangbourn, Manson...when they come up, they come up at reasonable prices, I can't sell an OW original for £1200 at the mo, theres been a very nice example of a Goodfellow on for some time, with the price reduced accordingly. I recently bought a Jaydee supernatural for just over a grand, same for the Pangbourn Warlord I have. Can this all be down to that chap from Tool using one?
