My contention is that the Dingwall Bass appears nice, I’d like to try one but nowhere in Raleigh NC available to actually hold one. I don’t see how $2500 to 4K for a Chinese bass can be sustainable as a company. Why wouldn’t they price themselves around the Musicman range, I bet they would sell more. Can someone explain why any of these big companies can justify these high price tags. The sum of all its parts as an individual consumer is around $800 (+ or - $200) depending on models ... what am I missing ? Dingwall owners mount up and tell me it’s worth it !!
