    I posted this a while ago - got cold feet or whatever and pulled it.

    I am posting again because I have finally figured out why I want to sell it. I am really into a passive (traditional/vintage) jazz bass sound - this one is more aggressive/modern than what I want. Think Jazz bass on steroids!!

    Alder body, 5 piece maple neck, morado fretboard, active electronics with passive controls, Dingwall custom pickups.

    Novax fanned fret system. Scale length is 32" on the G and 34.25" on the E. This bass is a breeze to play - fanning of frets is not an issue. Ten minutes and you'll be playing it like a pro.

    This is one of the most comfortable basses I have every played. The neck is smooth and fast. Frets are in great shape. It is in excellent condition - no scratches or dings in the body or neck. Pickguard has a little fingernail swirl - can't see it much. Hardshell case included.

    This is the first Super J off the "production line", the first natural and the first Super J with a Morado board.

    Current list is around $3000. NEW PRICE (4/2/06) $1975 SHIPPED (US48). Certified checks or USPS Money Orders only..

    Might think about trades - let me know what you have.

    This is an amazing opportunity for a bass that's super hard to get these days. The last dingwall only lasted minutes on this board...C'mon people a great deal on an amazing bass from a stand up TB'er.

    Check out the Dingwall forum, Dudepit and TB for other threads about the infamous Super J.
     

  3. Just to chime in....as a Super J owner, whomever buys this will NOT regret it!! Everyone around here who comes in contact with mine says it's the best bass they've ever played, myself included! Jump on it!

    I've been thinking about getting an Ergo EUB and saw on the Dingwall forum that Eggman has one. So I sent him a PM and he invited me over to check it out.
    (It was cool, I'll be ordering my Ergo in a few days)

    While I was there, he let me play his Super J. The bass is friggin' AWESOME, and I'm not a Jazz Bass fan. It's in better condition than most "new" basses; Bill has clear "static cling" vinyl on the front and back of the bass so that there are absolutely no scratches on it.

    The neck has an amazing satin finish that feels downright slippery under your thumb--super fast. The tone is growly and punchy and clear and defined.

    The price on this is a SIGNIFICANT savings over a new one and the ONLY indication that it isn't new is that you're buying it from a private party. This one is going to make someone's YEAR.

    All I play is 5-string Dingwalls. If I wasn't in the process of selling off most of my 4-string basses, I might have to take the plunge on this one...

    I found this posted on the Dingwall Forum site:
    http://www.dingwallguitars.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=228
    ===============

    Hey just found this from Ed Friedland
    http://www.vintagebass.com/thedudepit/showthread.php?t=13390

    Quote Ed-"I just sent in my review of the Super J to tech editor Terry Buddingh, it'll run in the July issue (on the street probably late May...) I can't give away the punchline, but I will say....I LIKE IT! I recorded some samples too, you'll be amazed at how it goes from Marcus-slap to Jamerson-thump to Jaco-burp, all from the same bass.

    While the construction and neck are all top notch, I'm really impressed with the pickups. The bass is amazing in passive mode (active ain't exactly slouchin' either.) Very cool bass.....""



    So you better buy your SuperJ now, cuz when this reviews hit the news stand...expect delays


    Congrats Sheldon- a well deserved Kudos

    I would trade the Super J. I would be interested in:

    Sadowsky 5
    Lull 5
    Valenti 5

    My bass is in 9.9/10 condition and would want a trade to be of equal condition.
