Just Spent Part Of My Inheritance...Dingwall

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jefft54, Apr 8, 2006.


  1. Well, I just bought this Dingwall from Steve Dude Barr of the Dudepit.

    As suggested by several TB'rs, I tried a Dingwall and found the perfect combo of the traditional style I wanted combined with handmade quality and contemporary updates. Steve just got this in yesterday and the Karma was too strong to pass it up. Coincidence a Dingwall just showed up...I think not! Should be arriving sometime next week. Thanks all.:hyper:

    Congrats on your new Dingwall. I'm having my first significant experience with the fanned-fret system this weekend and might post something (a review of sorts) soon. I've really been surprised and blown away. ;)

    Congratulations. Great combination finish and pickguard!
     
  4. Wow-
    congrats on a Dingwall. You'll love the SuperJ, they are an amazing players basses. The neck is like butter, and the tone is a meld of both modern and vintage. Best news for you the scale is shorter than a typical Dingwall. You'll have NO problems.
    Enjoy
    PS I too dig the nautral wood and that baltic amber pickguard is cool.

    Super J 4 scale is 32" to 34.25". Afterburner 4 is 34" to 36.5"

    Frank is right - Super J plays great - neck is butter - tone is great. Jazz bass on steroids!!

    Congrats.

    I know they sound and play great and everything, but i still cant get past the fact that it looks like somebody got a picture of a jazz and streteched it abit on photoshop:D
     
  8. How are you finding the fanned frets?
     

  9. Yeah, would be great if you could give your views on fanne frets. ...
     
  10. Once it arrives next week, I'll give a full review.:hyper:

    Excellent, Jeff!

    Welcome to the family. That's a beautiful Super-J (PJ) with the NEW baltic amber pickguard, I believe its probably the FIRST one out of the shop with that combo.

    Please head over to the Dingwall board if you get a chance and introduce yourself and your new bass!

    I'm sure you'll have many hours of enjoyment ahead of you.

    Nice one, I'm happy for you. I haven't played that pick up configuration yet. Let me know how you like it.

    I answered the other thread about the tapping, easier than you think.
