    Hey all - up for sale is a lovely red Dingwall NG2 5 string with a few years under its belt (not sure of the exact age, I can research if desired). This bass has traveled and been played extensively with two previous owners, earning it some cosmetic mojo which I've captured in photos/descriptions further down.

    This NG2 has rectangular pickup shells and the older-style bridge pieces.

    I originally bought this bass to set it up for some "out there" metal tunings and tones, but I'm already able to do everything I'm aiming for on my NG3 5 string...so this beauty has been sitting on a stand far too much. Can't justify keeping it at the moment.

    Asking $1500 for the bass and the case I received it in, PayPal preferred. The case is missing a latch and is fairly well worn, so I'm strongly leaning toward a local sale (Milwaukee area, WI). I'm definitely willing to meet the right buyer halfway for a car dropoff, and I'll entertain reasonable offers. I'll consider shipping long distance, but I'll need some time to set things up (1st time shipping a bass) and likely some extra $.

    Photos below, some with descriptions - PLEASE READ THEM. Thanks for looking!

    EDIT: Weight is 9.1lbs according to the bathroom scale.

    As you can see in the next photo, it appears a previous owner may have used heavier-than-normal gauge strings and widened the nut slots accordingly (just eyeballing it compared to my stock NG3). I don't notice any effect on the sound.

    There are two small chips in the nut on the treble sides of the A and D strings.

    With the strings removed/slacked, the tuning pegs on this bass do have some wiggle. The gearing and housing are rock solid, but the posts/pegs can move 1-2mm at the tuning end. With strings at normal tension, no wiggle occurs. I haven't noticed any problems with tuning stability and the like.

    Some small surface scratches.

    This ding is a bit hard to see - roughly centered on the side of the body, looks like an impact that cracked the paint but didn't remove it.

    Ding through the paint on the "horn" next to the cable jack. Immediately to its left is a small dent with a surrounding crack.

    Two dings that I assume went through the paint. Previous owner attempted repairs with nail polish of a somewhat-matching color.

    full?d=1593792859.jpg

    Some zoomed-out context on the previous dings. They're actually not overly noticeable when viewing the bass from the front (compare to 1st photo in this thread).

    full?d=1593792859.jpg

    Looks like something painted black traded some paint with the lower horn.

    full?d=1593792859.jpg

    The adjustable saddle piece for the B string is loose and can fall out with a string holding it down. I don't hear anything odd with the B string when playing.

    full?d=1593792859.jpg

    This case is included. It's missing a latch and is fairly generic in its fit of basses. Long enough for 37" of Dingwall goodness.

    Nice! If I was looking for another Dingwall, I'd definitely check this one out! Good to know there is another Dingwall fan in Milwaukee!
