    Avoid a 2 year or longer wait!

    NO TRADES. Need some cash at the moment.

    I'll accept Paypal, Venmo, Google payment, Zelle, etc.

    I priced this right at the average of the last four Canadian Dingwalls I could find sold here.
    Free insured shipping anywhere in the lower 48.

    Bought this in summer of 2018 from the second owner, who is a member here at TB.

    I just received my custom Dingwall AB1 after a 25 month wait, so this beast has to go!

    It's a great sounding instrument. I liked it so much that the custom I just received and paid about TWICE the price for is identical except for decked out cosmetic specs, and series/parallel pickup switches.

    Specs:
    • Alder body
    • Wenge neck and fretboard
    • Darkglass preamp with 4-position standard Afterburner 3-pickup switching (see paper diagram in pics)
    • FD3 pickups
    • Original Dingwall-brand Levy gigbag
    • Original Dingwall case candy, including color-coded wrenches, Dunlop strap locks, preamp and electronics instruction
    • Original sales receipts from when sold new
    • Currently strung with DR hi-beam XL scale LMR5-45

    Please see the photos.
    This bass has a few "impressions". I'm not sure of the proper term; A poorly positioned guitar fell off the stand and hit this Dingwall while on the rack at my house, and a right-angle jack left an impression near the output jack. They're like dents the finish, not scratches, and it's not bare wood.

    There is also one of these impressions on the bottom side of the neck around the 12th fret. This one is perfectly positioned to where I don't ever feel it while playing. It's close enough to the edge that thumb doesn't touch it, but far enough from the edge that my fleshy palm doesn't feel it near the side of fretboard either.

    Thank you for looking!

    That's a beauty. What body wood and finish is your custom?

    If only they weren't so good at implementing these custom finishes and such... It's unreal how this thing looks in person. Looks like it can't be real or something.
