    Does anyone know the story with D-Birds on the Dingwall website? The D-Bird link was taking you to the D-Roc limited bass page, but the D-Bird pages were there at /d-bird-standard and /d-bird-custom. Today, those pages are gone, and the menu no longer lists the D-Birds at all.

    Do you have his contact info?
    I’m in the market for a couple more Supers and I’d like to see if he might have any

    He doesn’t have any right now, but has a few Super J’s on order... one that’s minimal and one that’s done out.

    This is not a good development.

    I suspect Gibson has struck again. On the Strings page, the "D-series" is still listed, but the picture has been sloppily chopped to only show the neck and part of the body.

    I think they may just be in the process of renaming the model to D-Roc and changing the body shape to look like the Hellboy limited edition (Dingwall Guitars Announces the D-Roc Rob van der Loo “Hellboy” Limited Edition 5-String Bass), but the D-Roc pages are gone too...

    I emailed sales to see what the story is.

    Hmm, if you look at the splash screen that is behind the UI, you can see the D-Roc bass page. But the page is missing from the actual website.

    Ah. But none of these B stock y’all have been discussing.
    I’m looking for an SJ4 I can convert to fretless, and an SP5 as well

    Some background - Gibson recently released a video titled "Play Authentic" that basically talked about "protecting their legacy", a.k.a. dropping the legal hammer on manufacturers that they felt were infringing upon trademark design features. So we're assuming that the D-Bird was caught in the fray, which would be a real shame.

    I'm going to assume these cease and desists went out in waves, as Maruszczyk Basses has also taken down their T-Bird copy as well, which I think they called the "Phoenix". Ironic, as it's unlikely to rise again. :rage:

    Thinking about selling my Dingwall gig bag if anyone is interested. It’s a great bag, but I recently picked up a double mono.

    It looks a lot like this one, except it’s black / silver instead of blue / silver. I’ll get some pics for anyone interested.

    SOLD - Levys Dingwall premium gig bag

    Gibson IMHO is the worst brand in the guitar world, they kill every manufacture they buy and refuse to change their own flawed lineup.
    They killed the Steinburger brand, yes, they still exist, but they make 3 instruments all low-end and only very recently made them available.

    A luthier can glue this back in very easily. Please have the luthier send the bill to us and we will pay it.

    Excellent! Hopefully it features the Hellboy shape as the standard body shape.
