Wal MkIII Fretless 6 String

Recommended Posts

Looks a good deal at £3500...

The only reason I haven't bought this and sold my MK1 fretless, is that I have a fretless 6 on order and the MK1 will be easier to sell to pay for the new build when the time comes.

Of the many things A Wal can be, cheap is not usually one of them.
What is a reasonable price £3000-3500 ?

Before the recent price increase the base price for an MK3 sixer was £5450... With the increase I expect that is now £5650 + extra for specialist facings, matched headstocks etc. hence £3500 for the American Walnut sixer on ebay is pretty good :)

I believe they are all 34" ... my sixer is and so is my MK1 :)

Yeah I meant a fair price for a 5er, 6ers are rare, can't say I've seen many used appear for sale.
Does look nice.

Yeah I don't imagine there are many fretless sixers in existence... 3 or 4 at most i'd guess.

It's not as nice as your fretted.

Thanks matey, I'd be interested to try a 5'er too then at some point, to see how the B holds up as I am usually a 35" scale lover for 5'ers :)
