I am posting this thread because I am recently fascinated by the Dingwall basses but no stores in the Detroit area have one for me to go check out. I am interested enough to travel a ways to see one but thought I would post this question to the forum So what do you owners OR others that have actually played one think of this bass. I am most interested in its multiple scale lengths and fanned frets. Please include the model as the high end and low end priced basses apparently differ in quality so please share your Dingwall experience.... Is the string to string tone balance as good as advertised? Ect,Ect,Ect... Particularly interested in the combustion (the lower priced imported version) as it is closer to my budget.
