I've been lusting after a Dingwall or Strandberg Boden bass, as I'm fascinated by the multiscale design. I'm even considering selling my Bongo to fund this new acquisition. My main reasons for wanting a Dingwall is how in the video revies/tests I've seen, the sound is just amazing--clear, punchy, full, and that low B string is so articulate. The 37" scale for the B string is longer than most other companies' multiscale basses, as those tend to be only about 35" or so. And that beautiful Ferrari yellow finish with the black pickguard--just wow. My main reasons for wanting a Strandberg Boden is because of the uniquely body design that seems supremely ergonomic. I love the no-headstock design too--not aesthetically, but because I'm always knocking my headstocks into stuff and it's annoying. The bass is also incredibly light--the 5-string version a mere 6.5 lbs. It's multiscale but the low string is only 35 inches, so it probably won't have the same clarity as the Dingwall (my guess). The videos I've seen it sounds really good too (I like the Prog more than the Original, as it has a bit more gravitas). I have no access to either brands/models as I live in the Sacramento area and no one stocks them here, so I have to rely on research. Has anyone here actually played both and can give me some thoughts on how they compare (extra awesome if you have also played a Bongo and can draw comparisons to it too).
