Ok, so i've basically narrowed it down to... 1. Dingwall Z2 2. Fbass BNF5 As I can get either of these basses pretty easily, here in Edmonton, as there just happens to be a main distributor of each here. I'm absolutely lovin' the body style, and whole look of the Fbass, but I'm not sure about quality. I'm REALLY shocked by how incredable the Fbass' finish is. It just seems like the Dingwall has got better woods going for it, and the 37" B is always a plus. I mean... on paper... a 5 piece neck, and 3 piece body look alot nicer than the Fbass stuff, but I just can't get over how beautiful and original the Fbass looks. Also, I'd like this sucker to be fretless, and have a deep tone, not so focussed in the mids. Looking at an ebony fingerboard. I'd be using it for mainly fingerstyle and slap, about half and half the time. To be honest... I haven't even played either of these basses, and I DEFINATELY intend to quite a bit before I order either, but I'd like to try and get a feel for what each bass is like in the real world, and how it stands up to the competition.
