    Dingwall Super J 5 Exotic
    Alder body

    Aguilar OBP1
    Set up as V/V/B/T.
    Active/Passive switch.

    Original Dingwall 4 way rotary pot included if you wish to convert back. This pot allows for front PUP solo, both in series (mid boost), both in parallel (mid scoop), and bridge PUP solo, with 4 simple clicks in place of a standard volume or balance pot. Very handy but I went old school with this one.

    8.5lbs on the bathroom scale and balances amazingly with zero neck dive.

    Ships in a brand new Guitar Research hardcase/gigbag. I use my SKB bass safe when I fly (which is often) so I'm keeping the cheaper Dingwall bag as this one has too much padding and is to thick to fit.

    There is a small chip by the jack and a few scratches on the back cover both pictured as best I could. *NOTE* in the pic with the chip everything else is just dust.

    This bass with these specs new would be far more and have roughly about a year build time (although I am not certain on current wait times).

    For trades I would be interested in mostly other Dingwalls but get at me I'm open to offers. I would also consider a 5 string fretless at around 8.5 lbs. Please inbox any offers including specs and +/- cash offer if needed. Thank you for looking.

    No it came stock and has been swapped to the v/v rather than v/4way setup.

    Are the pups currently wired in series or parallel?
    Also does the active/passive switch still work?

    Thanks.

    I'm out of the country again for quite a while so pics could be an issue possibly I can have someone take it out of the box and photograph. There are the usual scuffs and swirls but not major chips or dents.
