: : : : WHATEVER HAPPENED TO WAL?????
: : : : I have owned a WAL Pro (fretted)bass since the mid 1980's.
: : : : I think that it a fantastic bass guitar, however I have been wanting a WAL Custom (fretless) and I cannot find one anywhere. I have even tried to buy new from a Music Store but I cannot find any stores which have any WAL's. Infact I have been informed that Wal no longer exist.
: : : Does that mean I will never get my Fretless WAL?
: : : And does that mean my WAL Pro will be worth more than it already is?
: : : :If anyone can inform me of the answers to any of these questions I would be grateful and if anyone wanted to sell me a WAL I would be happy to buy it.
: : : : Cheers
: : : : Robbie
: : I'm pretty sure that Wal are still making basses, as Tool's Justin Chanceler is still singing their praises. Check out www.bassplayer.com and www.toolband.com!
: : Good luck,

If you're still looking, go to:
They're still being made. A friend of mine has a number of them, and is hopelessly addicted to custom made basses. He even gets involved in the selection and purchase of the woods. His name is Erik Andersson, and you can see a few of his basses on the website. I haven't taken the plunge myself yet, but they are spectacular basses, and the electronics are beyond anything else I've heard. Good luck.
