Ordering & Pricing
Currently Wal basses are only available to order direct from our workshop here at Electric Wood in the U.K. We are able to ship worldwide, and offer a fully insured and trusted shipping option.
Standard prices start at:
Wal 4-string Mk1 - £4450
Wal 4-string Mk2 - £4650 (5 string version optional)
Wal 4-string Mk3 - £4650 (5 and 6 strings versions optional)
These prices would include a choice of standard facings (wenge, American walnut, paduak, zebrano), a satin finish, chrome hardware and a Wal branded hard case. Standard fingerboards are Indian rosewood for fretted, and ebony for fretless necks.
We also offer an array of non-standard/custom options at an upcharge. These include:
Specially sourced and more highly figured facings (e.g. bird’s eye/flame/quilt maples, and shedua),
Gloss finished body,
Gloss finished neck,
Colour burst tints,
Block fingerboard inlays,
Fretted ebony fingerboard,
Matching headstock veneer,
Extender (‘drop D’) tuners.
These are just a selection of the many options available. We are happy to try and accommodate any specific custom option requests - please just ask.
Total build/delivery time is dependent on final specification, and is currently estimated at up to approximately 24 months, from receipt of deposit. However, this does fluctuate, and we’re always working to reduce this time.
Payments are normally made in three instalments: a non-refundable deposit on placing an order, another payment when the neck is in process (approximately 4 months), and the balance to be paid before dispatch/or on collection.
Please note: for non-UK orders any import taxes/duties would be your responsibility (please contact your local customs department to find out import charges).
We’re always happy to answer any questions you should have, please email email@example.com. We can also collate an accurate price for your desire specification, and quote for shipping if required.
