    As I recall, I think I got this one from Juan at Bass and Beyond.

    This really belongs in the classifieds but I need to reach the largest number of Dingwall owners in the least amount of time.

    Does anybody have an extra right angle truss rod wrench they'd be willing to sell? My two went MIA for reasons unknown and I don't need the full-blown hex key kit. Thanks...and carry on!

    After almost a year of trying to make my ABZ5 work for me, I think I'm going to remove myself from the club. The bass is great, it just isn't "mine." The band I'm in wants to try some stage-shenanigans with lighting and lasers on the bass (our guitarist already has such mods). I think The ABZ has to go soon so I can replace it with a cheaper bass I don't mind customizing. If you are on the LA area, keep an eye on craigslist (trying to do a local sale).

    I just picked up this ABII this afternoon at Jive Sound. I've wanted a Dingwall for a while and so far am thrilled. The spalted/quilted maple top is amazing too.

    looks like i may have found redemption. i decided to drop everything a whole step down. since the band plays in drop-c, it has me on the low string, third fret for most songs. with Payson's flats and a bit of truss adjustment, the fingers are having a much easier time. the low growl is quite nice. i'm recording wednesday, so i'll give that a shot.

    the TecAmp Jag 900 and Darkglass B7K (and your strings) helped me get there.

    quick update:
    my first chance really playing it was at a buddy`s house last night and we immediately started recording with it.
    nice sound, great comfy neck. kudos to EG320 for setting it up perfectly.
    the bass came from arizona and overnight came to the PNW-a wild climate shock and the bass didn`t even need an adjustment or tuning. a testament to the quality and rigidity of the neck construction.

    She's a beauty Joe....please take good care of her.

    A pic of the 2006 Prima that joined my Dingwall trio last night. It's so nice I'm tempted to buy that six string Prrima.

    thanks, i'll post a sample or two as soon as they gets some mix treatment. probably just some compression. i'm concerned my timing is going to suck, and we aren't going to correct for it. we did one or two newer tracks, and i ended up rushing the beat. that's what i get for growing up trying to play guitar to Megadeth and Carcass; anything under 150bpm gets the gas pedal :bawl:
