Ive become very interested in Wal basses recently, but they are apparently notoriously hard to get. I was wondering if anybody here has any idea how a non superstar musician would go about getting ahold of one of these, if money isnt a issue?

thanks

I have seen them on Ebay (like the FL linked above) and recently one showed up on Craigs list. Yes, be ready to provide a pound of flesh and your first born child--they usually start at around 3,000 - 3,500 USD>

You should be able to procure a Wal for around five thousand.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Even superstar musicians find it hard to procure one. They don't even offer endorsements. I heard there's a waiting list dating back years. That's the main reason why prices are crazy inflated.

My teacher has one from the early eighties and it's amazing but to find one you really just have to keep looking until you finally come across one up for sale.

you'll probably have to get one directly from the company... cose they dont just make the basses... you'll probably have to ask them to make one for you, i believe.... most awesome bass ive ever heard, second to the rickenbacker 4001...... i would love to be able to get one ...

There are some things in life that are universally "good":

Sex, pizza, the smell of fresh washing and slap bass.
