I've decided that once my new Chapman Grand Stick arrives in December I am going to sell my old 8-string Stick and get a Dingwall. I just don't know if I want the Afterburner I or II. Now, I have always been big on passive electronics and was wondering if that was an option on the II. I know that it has an active bypass switch so that is not a huge issue. The biggest question comes in the wood. The I is soft maple while the II is a walnut/bubinga combo. Does anyone here have experience with both (especially both in passive mode)? Any help would be great. I am excited about this but juts need a little info on the two models. Thanks!
