    I'm not really to sure how serious I am about this but the deal is I have a build in que and I believe I just found my new main player. I've been gravitating towards six strings for a while now and the pics below explains why I'm doing this. I will get better pics soon. I may decide to keep her as it is everything I want in a 5 but for now I'll do the financially appropriate thing and put er up.

    Some specs.
    A link to the Dingwall page to start. Dingwall Bass Specifications | Side by Side Comparison | Dingwall Guitars

    Swamp ash body
    Flamed walnut contrast layer topped with buckeye burl
    Walnut neck with some flame in it.
    Birdseye maple fretboard.
    Super fatty pups
    Glockenklang 3 band
    3x series parallel switches.

    She's got a couple of majorly minor beauty marks that were there when I received her and some standard Dingwall fret wear. I will get photos up asap

    Zero trade interests.
    Price is plus shipping to wherever you may be. :thumbsup:

    My service will be sketchy for the next 5 days but I will try and reply as promptly as possible. Maybe I'll come to my senses in the meantime.

    Thanks for looking and have a gooder!! Eh!!

    I have a Z3 (bought on TB classifieds) with a similar wood spec & it has been my main player for the past six years. It has been toured with, fallen flat from a guitar stand on a Tokyo stage & escaped with a little bend on the treble pot. Only recently discovered its gorgeous phat mid content with the electronics in passive, pickups in series & hybrid treble cut down low.

    Interested parties should not hesitate on this.

    I have confirmed with myself.

    That I don't need all of these basses especially with another monster in que.

    I have confirmed it. Yes.
    I have.
    I'm not telling you this.
    I am telling me this.
    I am not a hoarder. It's not right for me to not share in the joy of owning and playing these amazing instruments. I do not need them all. I will come and check and read this post every day until somebody forces me (by paying me) to part with this bass.

    I am posting the SJ on the left separately. My intent "tonight" is to sell them both..... maybe once one sells I'll pull the other down. I don't know.
    No I won't.
    Must sell both.
    Must sell both.
    Not really.
    Yes really.
    My precious.....
    My precious.
