I am very tentatively thinking about swapping my Dingwall ABZ5 (brand new neck; replaced under warranty this year, from a broken truss rod) for a Peavey VB
-3 +/- cash depending on age/warranty/footswitch/peripherals/etc.
I realize that's a tall and unlikely order and so am not in any hurry.
This is a honey amber burst ABZ from 2010 or so, just about 8lbs, passive electronics.
The only defect is that the A-string tuner washer is bent in a little from the recent re-installation of the neck; that hardware is super light. It doesn't affect playability at all or the tuner functionality. You will probably need to fiddle with a screw driver to replace it.
I'll get around to some more detailed pics at some point, and get one of the tuner washer thing too if someone's seriously interested and has what I want.
The ONLY things I will consider are 300+ watt tube heads with KT88/6550s that weigh under 60lbs. That's a short list, and it starts and ends with the VB
-3 pretty much as far as I am aware.
An Ampeg SVT-2 Pro MIGHT be possible.
