Hi All, 

Unfortunately going to put this up for sale . Needs Must.It’s a 1983 with Walnut facings it really good condition for its age  with a few marks on the neck ( don’t feel them when playing) and dent on the side  see the photos.Weight wise under the 10 ilbs so not too bad and signed of by Ian himself. Comes with Wal Brown case.

This was serviced in the last 10 year that was confirmed by the second last owner to me and Paul replaced the string tree thus the reason for the dot on the headstock.

I know the prices of Wal these days have gone crazy  in the last 2 years ( possibly due to 3 year wait / Tool affiliation  ) but the above is in line with that last 2 that have sold on Basschat and actually less than  some listed elsewhere online .Looking to clear around 5500€ cash so will accept part trade. Interested in  classic 80s  ( Jaydee/Aria SB/Yamaha BB/Status) basses or possibly a super Jazz /nice Lakland but feel free to PM me: Worse I can do is say no

Amp wise : Maybe an Aguilar DB750 or nice rack pre amp 

Payment via Bank Transfer.I am willing to ship but would wish for the buyer to arrange as the buyer has ownership if in case goes awry. I can double box it also .62980C33-BD3A-4BA2-9EFE-C836D4FF0D34.thumb.jpeg.7868ccbde6419c7d966b2f1c83e4a4a1.jpeg49D41399-4DCA-4422-94D9-32EF3FB8B2DD.thumb.jpeg.534f6044133178fbb8796023603e47f6.jpeg2657DA55-0432-4037-B9CB-9EE0BC6E1DE1.thumb.jpeg.1f61c52436cabeca0bf91e2215a1bfad.jpeg5A2A7A6C-302C-4635-BFCB-0A06748F527B.thumb.jpeg.40c3086b5ff21c4cb333af3e873f89de.jpegE157555D-98DC-49B5-BADE-C9DBA31F5912.thumb.jpeg.b21d9e1744432e445423447bc28787e5.jpeg06FFCC4D-7367-491C-AFB6-8180DB782022.thumb.jpeg.93f0ed60e737b0958b733ee2f279c8ac.jpeg90C99BD5-3106-4E6C-9A30-F9F04BBEF58A.thumb.jpeg.385d4f16452bf3eec92a3a353d59518c.jpegE2187275-09E1-4BF4-B605-083AB014B75E.thumb.jpeg.7c70dee829849d0c8298ff58935c5cfd.jpeg590A09E8-1BFC-4CBE-AA44-9C4E0F299AF9.thumb.jpeg.d8b846c47abe12b8044c1a0c14d20263.jpeg

Curious as to what the neck profile is like on this. Do you have a means of measuring it at the 1st and 12th?

No real way to measure it but it’s mid point between a 70s Jazz and 70s Precision if that is any help

That’s just lovely, the current waiting list is over 3 years and they don’t appear to lock in the current price, so in 3 plus years you may be paying considerably more than the current stated £6.5k. Sorely tempted, but the other half knows exactly Wal are the Rolls Royce of basses and I won’t have picked it up for a fiver! 😉

Good luck with the sale!

Lovely Bass Mike. I have a very similar one I had made in 82. Stunning basses. Not surprised it went so quickly.  

BREXIT has caused untold damage to buying gear from UK now, and presumably the other way too. 

Best Graham.

Hi All ... Back up for sale , in all reality probably EU only sale. Just the import/VAT charges will too high for the Uk and seems to be too many variables trying to bring it in via Northern Ireland as the prospective last buyer found out ... bit of a mess really

All the best

Mick.
