    I’d LOVE to pick that up. But it won’t last until the first, when I’d have ready cash for it.

    I agree with @AB Nate - mine has lines, so that might help me a little more but it isn’t really harder.

    I keep on debating in my head, for when the time comes, whether I ought to get a Combustion and have it defretted, or just do a simple ABZ fretless.

    If those were my choices, I'd pick the ABZ, but either way I imagine you'll enjoy it. Speaking of Bubinga...

    That’s beautiful. Every time something like this gets posted, I make a mental note for me to mull over if I ever decide to get an AB2.

    Total fanboi of: Fractal Audio, AudiKinesis Cabs, Dingwall basses
    Pretty sure they don't do the ABHS's anymore.

    They don't, but this one isn't. Walnut body. Bubinga neck and top. AB2 (though not chambered to my knowledge), fretless with lines.

    So many beautiful ones out there. What I wish I could do (but can't afford to) is buy the AB2 from @Randy W Lopez and put the walnut neck on it from my redwood topped AB2. Walnut body, walnut top, walnut neck. I'd also love to try out an ovangkol neck.

    Hello Club. A question to Canadian made Dingwall owners: Do you use Dingwall gigbag to carry your bass or any other brand gig gag? Curious cause I also have MONO gig bag which is a bit lighter and shorter and fits easier in my car. So Dingwall own gig bag vs MONO one, which is your choice? Thanks

    Both. If I’m taking one bass it’s usually a dingwall bag, if 2 I have the double Mono. I feel safe with either option.
    That said, these are going in the back seat and not being tossed into any unsecure location.

    I have basically only been using my Mono Vertigo since I bought it. :)

    I have
    I own both. Overall the Dinwall is nicer and I usually take it, but I often miss the extra pocket up by the headstock for stuff. The bottom pocket is really big but throwing small stuff like in-ears, picks, etc isn't ideal in the bottom pouch where it gets lost. (Oops edit- I realized my Mono doesn't either. I was thinking of my Suhr case). So I definitely prefer the Dingwall but my Mono is an m080 - others may be better.

    I'll pop up a review when it arrives

    I had previous versions of Dingwall bags, namely Levy's ones (although different from each other). I use an Access Stage 3 gig bag most of the time. I have a Mono M80 and Mono Vertigo as well.

    I'm on the same page as @AB Nate, except if I solo a bass, I use my iGiG bag. It's nicer than any other gig bag I've had and it has more storage. Unfortunately, they went under a few years ago, but their gigbags were incredible. I use a MONO double bag, which I like, but only because I waited too long and didn't get an iGiG double bag when they unloading them a few years ago. Bummer.

    The Dingwall bags are top notch, not too many folks around here know anything about Dingwall, so they don't recognize the logo, which maybe makes them a wee bit less tempting to steal, but I like no logo...

  20. I transport mine in the Dingwall bag. It works very well and seems to be protective.

    I own a Mono Vertigo as well that I use for another bass… I don’t see it as a better option.
