Wal Pro 1e body template

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of building a Wal Pro 1e clone and wondered if anyone has a detailed template for this shape

I should explain that I have a Wal Pro 1e pickup and preamp, complete with scratch plate – all I need is the wooden bits etc

Dimensions such as thickness and routing would be most useful – the neck pocket is dictated by the scratch plate shape, so no problem there

Cheers!

Can't help I'm afraid, but I love the look of those really early Wal's I've always dreamed of having a clone made in 5 string format... but time, money etc. :(

Yes, great aren't they – I've had two Wals, both MkI customs, and would like to get that sound again – I'll probably have to make an approximate body template using images from the web

Cheers!

There is a Wal Facebook group and a chap posted in it recently about a company in Japan who make clones of instruments.  They're making him a Wal clone (well, the wooden bits at least) for quite a reasonable amount.  They may be able to do you the body and neck of Pro 1E?  I'll try and find the details.

The guy is having them made by rareguitarheaven.net

This is the Facebook group if you want to look - it's from a few months back so you might have to scroll a bit - good luck with the project! :)

Thanks for the Wal link – I see that the rareguitarheaven outfit get some rather scathing reviews – I'll almost certainly get someone around these parts to build it for me as I'm a fussy git – I'll make a fresh post once the build is underway, don't hold your breath though!
