You're more than welcome to swing by The Bass Shop when my Z gets in, if you'd like.
I shared this in the hot deals thread. D-roc 4 at Music go round for $1100: https://www.musicgoround.com/product/41116-S000027640/used-dingwall-d-roc-bass-guitars-purple
Green and purple? Are you the guy John Fox was telling me about when we were on the phone talking about the various options on Canadian Dingwalls?
My AB-1 four string weighs 7.5 lb.
It’s within an ounce of the Super P four string.
My AB-1 six string was under 9 lb. A AB-1 five string was also very light.
All the AB’s were alder body, flame maple tops, maple necks and wenge fretboards.
The Super P is alder body, maple and Birdseye, with a solid piano black gloss finish.
The Dbird weighs close to 8.5, which I think is on the heavy side of the Dbird, Droc range. I’ve seen Drocs at 7.5.
Nope. the switches are made with printed boards so you can't rewire or bend the options. You may be able to get a custom 4 way switch. I know that Mo Mina is doing those, so that would be easy enough.
That's insane! Surprised it's still up. If nothing else, it seems like an easy flip for profit.
Literally any Dingwall five string for that price, I would pull the trigger immediately.
this sounds like a build I’m gonna appreciate very much.
Green and purple huh…???
Your 6 string build was a major inspiration for me. Yours has the birdseye maple fretboard with the speedos which would have been super cool but I did a little cost savings with the standard board. Your purple to green to purple over a buckeye burl is beyond amazing.
I figured it’s most likely my last build and went a bit nuts. Cost savings is wise. I’m trying to implement that by selling basses. Lol.
Can’t wait to see it man.
Sure it is. You keep telling yourself that.
Thanks. Was hoping there was something I could rewire.
If you need email contact with Mo for a custom switch let me know. He's the one who's been doing them for Jason at Fret Nation and did the custom work/electronics on my fretless Combustion.
I have a custom 6 way inbound from Mo!
Is there a pool? I'll go in with 10 bucks that @AB Nate will do another build in < 3 years.
If you up the anti ill bet against ya…..
Edit: Dang it!!! Wait a minute!! Do you know something I don’t? New models???
I dunno about y'all but I'm excited to see what production models are going to be introduced. I know there's been all sorts of allusions by Sheldon in Q&A's etc., to the development of some new imports...so that right now for me is where any energy is for new stuff.
Crossing my fingers for a production Super with 18mm spacing. Preferably with the most ridiculous sparkle/flake finish available
A cost effective P would be hard to pass by. Lately I’ve been, really enjoying my humbuckers in my Mm basses and more so even my Active EMGs.
My energies are actually more in the head space of tinkering with pick up options vs new basses.
I really do have a be all end all line up of dingwalls for me. At this point, I really hope to find an older AB 6 with certain wood combos to Frankenstein up a bit more so then a new build.
….. @dirkhh modifying an older bass best not count with ur little wager.
Well, technically the person about whom a bet is, isn't supposed to bet, but... yeah, ok.
Twenty bucks! I am certain I'll win this one.
Also, to @BurningSkies comment... of course @AB Nate will also buy and sell a few production models in the meantime... but he'll also commission another custom build...
I’d do a purple sparkle P 4 string
