    Asked for your help to get the right 5-string as a beginner, and I got some pretty good input.

    I decided on this:

    But found out that those started at $2650 CAD! And the colors I wanted were over $3K CAD...

    Sooooo, I went with an NG2 Adam "Nolly" Getgood Signature 5 string.

    Here it is, amongst the guitars of doom :bassist:

    Nasty finger-print display? Oh yeah!!! Why purple? Because this is the only color I could tolerate. Awesome colors with the Super J, silly ones with the NG2... No offense to anybody!

    Oh, and I think, the body looks butt ugly! Do I care? I am going to lie and say no :vomit:.

    From Left to right: Drop A, NG2 will go back and forth between A and B, Standard tuning, and CGDGBE

    Now, time to play :)

    GOOSEBUMPS... I had to sit down.

    This is incredible. Instant Carnivool - Jon Stockman sound.

    I did not even have to mess with EQ! If only I had 1% of his talent!

    I came no where close to achieving that sound with my Ibanez SRFF805. What a diffference! Sooooo glad I got rid of the Ibanez.

    I plugged into my Seymour Duncan Studio Bass, that into Darkglass Alpha Omega, and into Ampeg PF-20T tube head. 2x10 Traynor Cab.


    I gotta say, this purchase made the MOST difference (in the right direction!) in my tone, guitar and bass, ever.

    Dingwall... Wow!

    I no longer need to try to hide that I hit a note on the B string. Perfectly integrated with the rest of the bass!

    This is soooo amazing.

    Dingwall! (Fellow Canadians :)) Thank you.

    Is white a silly color? ;)

    Enjoy the new bass! :bassist:

    White? Check!:thumbsup:

    Better than purple, that’s for sure!

    Oh no! Did that make you cringe? Mistakes happen.
