    Yup, not sure :). Either way, that's the price, and, it's an amazing deal. I'm truly surprised it's lasted this long.

    Hm. Straw poll here. Has anyone had experience with a dealer-stock Dingwall needing warranty work?

    Does the dealer have a good tech?

    So got the labella white tapewounds in, and as expected I'd have to widen my nut slots a bit to fit them. The listed gauges are 43 50 65 85 105 and 135 but they seem a tad wider. Im a bit hesitant to open the slots unless I'm sure about the strings. Anybody know if I could go back to thinner gauges without swapping the nut, or would a new nut be needed? Normally I use strings in the range of 30, 43, 55 75 95 130.

    Or for future readers with the same problem and are using the search function.
    Take a screwdriver and tap on the pickups...

    ...or a Dingwall Allen wrench, which might be less sharp than a screwdriver. :)

    yea, black hardware gives a complete different vibe

    the gold combustion would look extra "dingwall" with matte black pickguard + all black hardware imo (since black and gold is like... dingwall's brand color imo :bag:

    In addition to tapping on the pickups with a ferrous tool, you can take off the rear cavity cover and look at the circuit board on the pickup selector. It will either say 3x or D-Bird right on the circuit board.

    I can definitely confirm that black hardware and Shoreline Gold look great together...

    This one goes a little beyond a regular tech, unfortunately.

    I was unaware of this, thank you very much for the info! I just opened up the electronics and discovered that mine does indeed have the D-Bird selector.

  15. I must have misunderstood what you meant. What’s the issue?

    I was, but I probably couldn't swing it right now. Send me a PM.

    I've seen some come off the floor for a fret dress and minor things but never anything significant.
