The Wal Forum

Postby harleyyy » Sat Jan 05, 2008 5:10 pm

Due to recent requests, and Lowell owning huge stock, this forum is our latest addition for you Wal afficianados to celebrate and discuss all things Wal, from the late Ian Waller'and Pete Steven's fine works of art / tone monsters.

WELCOME WAL-NUTS ! [smilie=music-smiley-005.gif]

So this is where you have all been hiding. It's great to see both you and Lowell again after all this time!

Thanks Harley and everyone... I truly had a spell of good luck out there. It's the only beech Wal I've seen, although I understand that there might be at least one other. Pete sure could cut a piece of wood!

Blondie is one of my all time favorite Wals. Here is a shot of the other beech Wal (note the standard pickup placement):

Very cool! The facings look be from the same piece of wood as Blondie - or at least it has similar "flames" around the pickups. Awesome, Lowell. Thank you.

Battery box for the pro1e models (the 'e' for active electronics), everything was top routed on those models.
