    I have been intrigued by Dingwall basses for years but had never played one, so I decided to finally try one out. I picked up this one a few weeks ago here on TB:

    SOLD - Dingwall AB 2

    It's a beautifully crafted bass, and sounds fantastic, but it turns out that the fanned fret system is just not my thing. I guess I'm just too old-school. So, I thought I would move it along to someone who really can appreciate it.

    • Made in Canada
    • Walnut body
    • Arbutus Burl top
    • 5-piece Bubinga neck
    • Wenge fingerboard
    • Dingwall FD-3 pickups
    • Aguilar OBP-1 18v preamp
    • Weight - 8 lbs 8 oz.

    Overall excellent condition, with only a few small bumps (worst of which is pictured just below control knobs, can't be seen when playing). Includes Gator case in very good condition, with the exception that both lid-stays are missing, but clean inside and out, all latches and handle intact. Also includes two extra sets of strings that came with it, one marked "OLD" and the other marked "NEW." They've been in the case since I got it, haven't touched them, so I'm not sure of the actual condition of either set.

    Price is $2300 shipped CONUS. Please start a PM with any questions.

    Sweet bass.

    Tell us about what each switch does?

    Oh! More sweet temptation. I love that top with the walnut. What's the lottery up to again? In the meantime, GLWTS. Wish I could afford this!

    Oh, and I had a bubinga necked ABII, and I miss it!

    One switch is active/passive, and the other turns on/off the bluEQube circuit, which is a subtle, passive mid-contour that smooths the slap/pop tone.

    Do you know the year she was built?

    Based on the serial number and some digging around in the Dingwall Forum, I'm guessing around late 2006/early 2007. If anyone knows how to tell, please chime in.

    Writing to Dingwall is the only sure way to find out. The serial number has no date code.

    Fretboard markers on the AB series started in 2008. See this thread. But yes, ask Sheldon--he's very good at responding to emails.
