    my mindset is that i have the ability to own bases for each sonic whim. So i would rather a standard fiver… and a second f# bass. Then i have all my standard 4’s. I like to swap things up and have specialist tools.

    Cause some days i want to play modern prog heavy metal with crushing distortion, and others i want to play Motown.

    Can you tell us more about that flavor of EQ ?
     
  3. I recently started having an issue with the saddle on my NG2 lowering while I'm playing and the string sticks to the pickup. Anyone have a fix for this issue? Have a festival gig in a couple of weeks and hoping to get it resolved.

    New Bass Day.

    Spent some time drilling holes for new strap locks + wall mount, but finally this Dingwall NG2 joins my little practice corner. It's my first five-stringer, found it used with some light- to moderate wear for an OK price I think. Initial impression is that especially the series mode for the pickups is absolutely roaring. Precisely what I was looking for. :cool:

    Congratulations! The NG-2 is a killer bass. :cool: Installing Dunlop strap locks was the first mod for mine also.

    The reason it can't be done on ABs is the neck joins right at the neck pickup.they probably don't have a CNC model that has body wood there and/or think it would be ugly.
    Pretty sure they had a 2x Super J option for a year or two (which no one ever ordered). They might still do it upon request.

    With the pickups mounted adjacent to each other? I missed hearing about that option...

    I forgot that they use the FDV pickups as stock now and was surprised at how different it seemed to sound compared to the ABZs I owned before, then I realized they had the FD3 pickups.

    So I couldn't reply for some reason the other day but has the overseas DW's moved to Korea now?

    As far as I know, nothing official has been said. There was a (slip up?) photo posted, then removed, with a caption mentioning Korea. But, seems that for now still business as usual.

    I think that, around the first of September, I’ll be ready to email John Fox and get the ball rolling on ordering an NG3 6 in Black Forest Green, set up for F# standard right from Dingwall. A few months ago, I had asked Sheldon on a livestream if that would be a possible mod on a production bass, and he confirmed it could be done. I’m just about ready to pull that trigger.

    It's a standard option on NGs, yeah. I don't have a 2020 or 2021 price sheet, but I think it used to have a small upcharge for it.

    I did not know that. And here I thought I was clever when I asked him that.

    I'm kind of curious who they use for F# strings. I haven't kept up with Kalium, but over the past several years they've had a ton of issues getting strings to people (I may be out of date and maybe they have resolved this issue). Outside of Kalium and Payson, I don't personally know of another F# string -- I'm sure they're out there, I just need exposed to them :D
