1985 Wal Custom MK1 4 String fretless Bass. Originally built for Kevin Fairburn ( '80s version of British band Mud) with Brazilian Mahogany core, Olive Ash facings and a fretless Indian ebony fingerboard. Other than the added strap locks this bass is 100% complete including it's original flight case. Serial number: W2661. Weight: 10.1 lbs.

You can see this bass listed on the Wal serial database: http://www4.cs.fau.de/~koesters/Privat/Wal/walspec.html

The body is in very good shape, with some minor wear around the edges, the neck and headstock are in excellent condition with just one very small ding in the headstock on the top edge. The neck is straight and in very good condition and truss rod works as it should.

The electronics all work as they should. It has Wal flat response, humbucking pick-ups that contain individual matched pick-ups for each string, thus eliminating imbalances. It has a built-in balanced XLR DI and a standard ¼ “jack output for amplifier feed. Volume control also has a pull to actuate pick-attack switch, a pickup balance pan pot, and tone controls that operate electronic, low pass filters whose roll-off frequencies vary with the position of the control. Inside the back plate there is a handwritten materials list.

It's been fully set up by my technician Chris Ward. Neck width at nut: 1& 11/16" at the 12th: 2 & 1/8" Depth at nut: 7/8" at 12th: 1"
