I got the chance to check out a Dingwall D-Bird today. WOW. First impressions, light, resonate ,solid. Did I say light? The fan frets were no issue at at. I didn't even notice them when I played it. It was finished in a rich purple. It felt very comfortable. The neck felt perfect. The sustain was stupid good. Volume, 5-way selector switch,Tone. 3- pick up. It was cool. It was cool. WOW.
