beautiful bass, I'd like to try that fanned fret thing sometime and see how that works for me
What is that? Some sort of Burled, quilted, flamed maple? Beautiful, nonetheless!
That's killer, but mucho $$$ likely. Likely more than most Foderas or Ritters.
Sheldon's top of the line basses are always amazing though!
YOWZA! That's pretty! Good thing I don't get along with fanned frets or 6 strings, otherwise the GAS would be sky high!
Yeah, my eyes are having trouble figuring out what I'm seeing - looks like some sci fi flick showing low thin clouds over an alien planet's surface! drool
Very nice. A bit uptown for my types of gigs. Still, a piece of art.
It's a great top. A crazy mixed up maple, in a variation of the trans black. Although I'd say it's probably not as much as most Foderas or Ritters. This is an Afterburner model and I'm guessing it probably prices somewhere around $3K (without seeing current a price sheet). The Afterburner series was originally the entry level but is now a step or two up from the Combustion and the AB/Z range. This one has some fantastic options that give it a bit of 'juice' in pricing, from the highly figured top, the triplebucker pickups, the wenge on wenge neck, the preamp, and the 6th string... but it's not a Zebra or a Prima model.
So yes, it's not a Fender, Musicman or similarly priced bass, but could very well be in the range of many players.
And if people can grab a bass in this range with slightly less spec at a good price. My experience is that they also hold their value. My Afterburner did.
That's simply stunning, and I really like the pickup configuration!
Do pups that close together actually sound different from each other or are they different spec for each pup?
Wow, that just shoved Nolly's famous Dingwall back into the shadows and stole the show :O
They do sound different. Keep in mind that half the magic is in the wiring combinations involved.
My next Dingwall will also be a triple bucker but way different from this one I think.
Good looking top; still looking to try a Dingwall, that fanned fret-idea looks interesting.
It looks like poplar burl to me but who knows?
It's toight like a toiga! Never tried a fan fret, could be interesting.
Looks freakin awesome but they installed the frets crooked!
Whatever you do, dont go to the Ritter website.
^^^ Heard by me at nearly every show I play.
