an all original WAL Mark II 5-string bass guitar. Handcrafted in the Electric Wood Co, at High Wycombe, Now considered a vintage classic amongst bass players. This is a hand-made, custom, bass numbered WAL crafted by Wal / Electric Wood in 1990s. The bass body and neck are composed from a mixture of high quality materials. Woods used are Brazilian mahogy core, American walnut/ Wenge facing and Indian rose fretboard. The backplate has a Serial number W-3392 engraved. Includes non original hard case According to the History of Wal Basses website, the bass has “twin pickups with a powerful active circuit offering volume, pickup pan and separate tone controls for each pickup. The volume included a push/pull knob which also activated the ‘pick-attack’ feature. This adds a narrow band of high frequencies to the overall tone setting to provide a more dynamic, percussive attack – ideal for helping the bass cut through a muddy live mix. The tones are low-pass shelving controls governing each pickup. They also each have a push/pull switch which engages an active boost (quasi-parametric) giving a more distinctively ‘active’ tone. A balanced XLR output comes as standard on all ‘Custom series’ basses”. The bass is quite heavy, but balances well. More pics etc on my blog on Elite Vintage Guitars
