    Still VERY much on the fence about this: the bass is my first custom Dingwall build, and I have absolutely LOVED performing and recording with it, but it has been all but untouched since my DBird arrived and I have some bills stacking up that need addressing.

    I may pull the listing at any time, but if the ad is still up it's still available.

    Specs as follows:

    Swamp Ash Body
    Trans White finish
    Wenge neck (P carve)
    Wenge fingerboard with Luminlay dot markers
    Passive electronics with series/parallel toggles
    P-tone neck pickup
    FD3 & FDV pickups sets
    D-Tuner
    BWB pickguard

    The bass is not a closet queen and has a bit of play wear, but nothing that is noticeable unless you're looking very closely.



    SJ4 3x passive sp toggles Transparent White wenge wenge e.
    _DSC2107.



    Spec'ing the same build currently will run $5k+ with a 24 month lead time.

    I still may, honestly got a little nauseous even making the listing...funny how attached we can get to inanimate objects.

    It'll take BEAD tuning quite nicely if that helps ;)

    I thought of that, but I'm too old of a dog to learn new tricks, and being in a Country band, the G string gets quite a bit of use, even up high. Still thinking about it though...

    Interesting...the last gig I had playing modern country tunes definitely required a low B but never a G, I actually used my DBird for that one

    Example given, " You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like That" or "A Little Too Late" by Toby Keith, or "Drink On It", Blake Shelton.

    I’ll check those out: we had “Bless the Broken Road”, “Need You Now”, “I Hope You Dance” and a few others on our list.

    Is this beauty strictly for sale, or up for trade or trade+cash as well?

    I would consider a trade+cash deal, but it would need to be at least 50% cash since current finances are the prime motivator for finding it a new home.
