Instruments currently built by Electric Wood in High Wycombe (Bucks), England since 1978.
In the mid-1970s, Pete Stevens joined London-based repairman Ian Waller to design the Wal Custom bass guitar. In 1978, the two incorporated into the company called Electric Wood, and produced numerous custom basses. Waller passed away due to a heart attack in 1988, but Stevens along with luthier Paul Herman, continued to build basses until Stevens retired in the 2000s. Herman took over from Stevens when he retired and continues to build bass guitars today. Stevens died in 2011 after a long illness. Basses start at £3,650. Wal bass guitars are becoming increasingly popular in the used marketplace. For more information, visit Wal's website or contact them directly.
