Deal is happening on Saturday. I'm excited to get it back.
I can understand.
It still seems like a strange deal to me, it's a real gem you have now, and one which will never be made again at that.
The super just seems like another super, unless I'm missing something ?
Here's a pic (gratuitous pic with all my basses actually). It's a 3x btw and so far my favorites are the neck soled and whatever the position 3 is (parallel neck/bridge I think).
And bittersweet NBD actually. There's something wrong with the electronics. At first when I switched it to passive there there was no sound. I opened it up and checked connections and must have moved something because that's gone but it's noisy in active mode (electronic buzz or hum). All the rest of those basses pictured including the single coil jazz are dead quiet in the same rig. I really don't want to have to ship this back but probably have no choice
Honestly? I'm just a P-bass kind of person. While the ABHS is beyond amazing, I'm having a hard time finding "my" tone in it. To a lesser extent I also miss the 19 mm spacing of the Super.
19mm I totally understand, however short of a US spector I don't know of any bass which does my kind of tone with that string spacing.
And those are damn expensive

I'd love one of those wide Spectors. There was one for sale on TB a while back.
SOLD - Spector Forte 5 Wide
Yeah but most of the private US sellers are not willing to send overseas
Otherwise I'd buy stuff all the time, the used prices in the EU are such a ripoff ...
TBH though, I find Dingwall and Spector to not sound anywhere close to alike. Especially neck-through Spectors. Totally different animals IMO, both amazing in their own right.
True, of course. I'm not a guy who has just one tone in mind though I love many .. too many for my wallet probably.
I've pulled the Dunlops off the bass and gone back to the Payson's.
I could never get the right sound or feel out of the Dunlops, to the point it was making me wonder what was wrong with my playing. No amount of amp tweaking ever got it right.
This is doubtless a reflection of my personal preferences, not the quality of the strings.
Or maybe a reflection of just how much work went into making the Payson's right.
Yeah, I love the Payson Nickel rounds, can't believe how stupid I was to wait over 12 months before trying them.
I’d suggest emailing tech@dingwall first.

Shoot. Sorry to hear that. mad mentioned send tech an email before anything else or talk to your dealer.
How do the knobs look and rotate? Any wobble or stiffness as if it’s been hit?
Can you snap a clear photo of the cavity?
side note: your pick up selector goes like this:
1.towards the neck. Neck Pup only
2.B/N in parallel
3.B/M in series
4.towards the bridge. BRidge pup only
I heard back from the tech and he said what I explained sounds like a grounding issue and they are happy to pay to have a local tech take care of it so I don't have to ship it (also Music Zoo where I purchased it was willing as well) so overall a small issue and good customer service. I buy and sell a lot of stuff and I know things happen.
Otherwise I love the bass. I'm getting used to the length but the plus side is my stingrays feel like toys after I play it!
The issue of no sound in passive mode is very strange - hard to see how that could happen.
It was like that from the beginning? What style of plug was on the instrument end of your cable?
Having no sound in active mode is the more common issue, caused by the cable not being 100% fully inserted into the jack, which can easily happen with an angled plug or a cable with a fat oversized plug housing.
The buzz you are now getting sounds like maybe a ground wire got detached. Do you see any disconnected wires anywhere? Maybe upload some close-up photos of the cavity from various angles?
Can you use an ohm-meter to confirm you have conductivity from the strings to the ground (shield) on your jack?
Can I see this somewhere if I don't have facebook ?
No face book here either.
Nope no Facebook or Twitter here
