    So I won Bass Gear Magazine's Dingwall giveaway, and my brand new Combustion showed up today! I was a little worried about the fanned frets, but so far I haven't noticed any negatives as far as getting around the fretboard. Great, punchy tone. Makes me think of a juiced up P bass. Love it so far. Big thank you to Tom Bowlus and Bass Gear and Sheldon Dingwall! ImageUploadedByTalkBass1359165984.899479.jpg

    Although.... It is now below 0F where Sheldon is.... Maybe the cold got to his head. No other reason to giveaway such a nice bass.:bassist:

    Glad to see it went to a good home. I hope you get a ton of tone and enjoyment. Thanks for supporting the magazine. The boys work incredibly hard on it and are doing an amazing job.

    Has the matching headstock always been an option for the Combustion?

    I played two Combustions, an Afterburner, and a Super J today. I love those basses.

    Just curious, does anyone know what the standard string spacing (at bridge) for any Dingwall 5 is?
