    I opened the box and within a minute of playing it said to myself "yup, that's it." Never had I had an extended range bass that wasnt fighting me in some way, shape or form. It's just so well designed and executed. Ergonomically, tonally, everything. I'm truly blown away, if you cant tell. This was NOT what I was expecting

    I'm curious. Why the two stacked knobs?

    Swapped the pre with an Audere simply because I had it laying around and I like the high mid-low mid control.

    Edit: spelling

    Fretless lines inlay part two:

    First off, the 'old' (a few months old, that is) boxwood inlay lines being removed by way of a fretsaw and some really careful detail work:

    And today, luminlay fretlines being put in place:

    Yeah, I'm really interested to see where Mo takes it. I like that the lines appear to be fairly deep...Those lines will be super visible from the side.

    I hope it sounds cool too...this is the bass that has the Piezo bridge & 2nd preamp installed too.

    Yes, you can tell by the super-dark blue-black color.

    Woo. D-Bird Standard incoming via local freight now! I’m really curious how this thing feels as I’ve become more enamoured of having only four strings some of the time, at least. I’m really curious what the colour-shift is going to look like in person.

    congrats!!

    personally i think they felt great, and the construction felt almost identical to the early d-bird customs (except the headstock, overall paint job and input jack), and the neck profile felt different

    and the color shift can go really dark xD

    If the standard appeals,I can see myself picking up a custom (probably 5, probably with Wenge neck) down the track.

    Can you explain how it felt different? I think I was initially told that the necks would be the same on these, but it makes sense that the Canadian version would be a bit different.

    Has anyone played their long-scale Dingwall on a jazz gig?
