    Had the pleasure of sitting in with @Sheldon D. to demo the new D-Bird standard for Premier Guitar



    The mic input was set a little too hot, so there's some clipping, but I'll do some cleaner tone samples once mine is delivered :thumbsup:

    Probably the coolest iterations of T-birds on the market.

    A T-Bird designed by Salvador Dali. Positively awesome. Wouldn't mind owning one at all.

    Love Dingwalls.

    Easter egg: There's a shot playing in reverse slipped into the video.

  6. That is hot. Still no left-handed models, huh?

    I wish they hadn’t screwed the pooch on the black ones with the headstock color. Regardless, I’m interested in getting my paws on one to judge for myself. I should’ve gone to NAMM just for a test drive.

    I'm going to rap with Sheldon about that and see if I can't convince them to do a gloss black center like the other two.

    Good luck. It’d be a shame for me to DIY fix it.

    They're planning on one, but the design is a ways off.

    They're doing left handed Combustion and NG-2 basses, but no DBirds yet.

  15. Whoa, thanks. Last I knew they didn’t do anything in LH. Must revisit their site.

    I might have to see if Chad/TheBassShop is indeed getting one of the Std DBirds in and make a run after it if so. It'll end up BEAD if I do.
