W2111This item is accompanied by 10 images1983RosewoodFretted214Mk1Mahogany core, Sycamore facings. Chrome hardwareRon ClaassenThis bass is rebuilt by Paul Herman. The first owner tried to reduce the weight of the bass by sawing pieces from its body. Paul made the second owner a new body so together with some fretboard work, it's like new again. This bass now uses the original neck of W2714 which has been fretted now. Background story: Ian Leese knows a depressing story: "The story of the ebony neck is that it was attached to W2111, a rare bodied Mk1, which a previous owner decided was too heavy and cut the body up to make it lighter. The body was also revarnished (with a brush) and some of the varnish found it's way onto the neck, which is why the neck now has a waxed finish, I had to use a fine sandpaper to remove the solidified drips of varnish! A replacement body was made by an amateur builder before I purchased it for the Wal case that came with it. The replacement body was not very good, the bridge and pickups badly installed and the electrics were damaged, hence the reason the neck was removed, being the only useable part left. The stupid owner didn't realize that W2111 was an extremely rare Mk1 Wal, the body was solid Berlinia (no mahogany core) with Australian Walnut center stripe and signed off by Wal himself. I still have the body for reference, but unfortunately it's totally unusable. Such a shame."
