The WAL bass has started its inception in the early 1970s with founders Ian Waller and Pete Stevenson. Based in High Wycombe the Electric Wood Co as the maker of the WAL is called is producing a variety of these in comic guitars. Over the years the WAL, with its revolutionary design and electronics is a well respected acccessiry on stage and in the studio. Notable WAL players included John Entwhistle and Paul McCartney.
