    That's freeeekin' sweet. Keep us updated on it!

    It's been a good week for TBers and Dingwalls. :)


    Is this your first one, or are you a multiple Dingwall owner?

    Wow, a five string bass with six strings!!
    lol, I want a Dingwall sooo bad, so I'm saving money to get a Dingwall Super Jazz. It makes me giddy just thinking about them. Though, I wonder if MTD would ever make a fanned 535? That would be sweet.
    But for now I'm stuck dreaming.

    Those frets take 0.005 seconds to get used to. When looking down at the neck in playing position, you can't really see a difference from straight fret basses. As an example of how easy it is, I got my Dingwall on Thursday night, and was playing it on stage on Saturday night. The jump from 4 to 5 was a bigger concern for me, and by midnight the day I received the bass I was good with the frets.

    I love it.The tone on this bass is amazing. The pcikups are so clean sounding. I had to borrow a Dingwall once and i never had a problem with the fanned frets. This is my first Dingwall.

  10. Welcome to the Dingwall club! I really like the woods used on the Afterburner II. That bubinga is purrty.

    I have an Afterburner I and love it. From the tone, the low action, and the amazing B string it's got everything going for it.

  12. Great looking bass...
    Man oh man Sheldon knows how to create basses. Gotta love those ABII, great playing, incredible tone, and a B string that just kills. Those FD3s really come alive w/ a preamp, althou i find you almost never need the preamp.
    Anyway, enjoy enjoy and as you already have read Sheldon Dingwall is tops when it comes to customer service
    Enjoy the bass
