How Wal Bass Was Born?
Wal bass guitars first came onto the scene in 1976, when first-call session player John G. Perry asked Ian Waller (“Wal” to his friends), to build a bass that would combine the best features of the ubiquitous Fender and Gibson basses of the time. The bass that he designed looked and sounded unique and it was immediately clear to both men that this was too good an instrument to keep to themselves. The Wal Mk 2 4 String bass story had begun.
Wal basses divide into three basic models - Mk 1, Mk 2 and Mk3's. We are going to introduce the second model - Wal Mk 2 Bass! The Wal Mk 2 shape is the original 5 string design but is also available in a 4 string version. It has a 24 fret neck with a longer body horn and contoured cutaways.
