    The import models also come with a nice gig bag from that manufacturer (Music Area) but they aren't the same (or as cool) as the ones that come with the Canadian basses.

    Any user reports as of yet on the D-Roc 5-String or the limited edition Rob van der Loo Hellboy that is now shipping? I have an initial impression but would like to see others.

    Did anyone else catch the Dingwall video on social media this morning about the D-Roc Standard 5? In particular, did anyone else gasp when @Sheldon D. did the big flourish’y flip maneuver with the bass in the video? That’s a bold move with such a nice bass! :nailbiting:

    A fretless Dingwall is on my bucket list. Multiscale fretless would be the ultimate technique challenge as a bass player IMHO.

    you should share the bubinga too! Let’s see it. I’m kinda surprised you ended up with that Z. It seems to be missing a string for your tastes. That said, it’s amazing!!!
    What do you mean genuine? The bass (yes) or my comment(also yes)? Hehe

    armed with my info, I 100% believe he’s asking a serious premium BUT if he can get it I’d doesn’t hurt any of us so all the power to him. Dingwalls are like real estate and I want the ones on my street to sell high.
    This one says 95 ish
    For Sale - Dingwall Pre Fire Voodoo Zebra 5 String
    and if it’s correct this one would be slightly earlier as my serial number is 11 less. neck is a 7 piece. It’s glorious. :D

    You’d be needing to find an old AB to get a fairly low const sixer. Kinda like the whalepool one discussed above. I just saw it for sale I think on FB.

    It’s actually not though. If your at all comfortable on a dingwall neck the Fretless feels quite natural and intonates remarkable well. At least that’s what I find

    Rarity always begets value if an item is in demand. ;)

    There's even a point where collectability isn't based upon quality, rather scarcity.

    I worked as the indie buyer of a record store for a decade and we also dealt in vinyl; back in the era of 88-2000 it wasn't the hipster thing it is now, but we did a ton of vintage vinyl. Anyway... it was usually the albums that didn't do as well that were worth the most. Bad reviews meant smaller production runs, less hit stores, etc. at the time that they were released. Later or completists like me (this is before you could DL or stream nearly anything), wanted even the crappy records...thus things like Grateful Dead's Steal Your Face selling for over $100 bucks even though it's an effing trainwreck, etc.

    You know, lesson for the future. Hold onto the money for a high end bass in case something good pops up in the area :)

    I sold the AB2 (Cocobolo top / Bubinga neck - #1-12 made) to get into a Skjold Catacomb. She is a beaut, one I’ll regret selling for sure. (Pictures below)
    The Z3 is missing a string for my normal tastes. Haha. It is too pretty to pass up! It surprised me more that I sold off my ABZ sixer to swing it. Can’t keep them all and now I know with certainty a Z3 sixer will be next. Want to trade ABNate? Haha

    It’s a first and very limited batch. Mine was unfortunately not in this shipment. Waiting for the next one in November and looking forward to hearing first reports too.

    Once I line up a Z3 sixer, preferably wenge on wenge, I will be selling the purple five string Z3. I should just find a quick build slot and get it exactly how I want it. I’m just impatient.

    Ah. I thought that was the one you were referring too.

    amazing for sure.

    Hahah…. Tempting. Galactus stays put….. I still struggle with parting with the maple marvel though too.
    Stop it you devil. I was happy to see that one get a sold sign when it did.

    From previous convos I knew it was only a matter of time before you fell hard for dingwall. That’s a killer skjold too. Lotto Bucket list for sure.

    True. I just sold a lower end Ibanez Tubescreamer for about $220 more than I thought it was worth because of the colour. Apparently it was a limited run. I had it pictured in a local Kijiji ad for a pedalboard I was selling; it wasn't even listed. Someone made me an offer and off it went!

    We shipped several out 2 days ago so thought perhaps there were a few in player’s hands. Good luck on getting yours soon.
