    Is that a Dingwall or something else?
  8. NBD! (yesterday)

    My stable has grown again this year with the addition of a Ray34CA from a fellow member:



    I actually like the tone on the Ray34CA more than my American Stingray 5! (Stingray 5 sounds weak in comparison now...?)

    Unfortunately, the bass weighs a ton (the seller was perfectly clear on that, so no surprise there). Hopefully a wide neoprene strap will help.

    Surprisingly, I'm wondering if I would have preferred a standard Stingray width neck (even though I have two Jazz bases) - the neck seems a little too thin to me right now (hopefully I'll adjust).

    That being said, the fit and finish on SBMM is an incredible value for the asking price! I highly recommend them!

    Something else! I got it made by a custom shop in China, sort of taking inspiration from the Super J series. I love off-set body styles on bass.

    It's 37"/34", but the neutral fret is at like the 7th instead of the 12th, which I thought was common. It's a lot of fun to play, but it certainly isn't a Dingwall. But it also cost a fraction of one.

    ok... I try to tell a bit with my poor english...
    30 or 40 years ago I used to play in a Beatles Coverband and I remember that in those days I wished to have something more significant than my violin bass. But I had a job, a family... you know all the stuff that takes your time...
    Now I'm a pensioneer and the biggest german music forum initiated a competition for guitar- and bass builders and I saw my time had come. :) Now I hope, that I win the competition and thinking about the next project... :D

    @5001 do you have pictures of when you were building the bass? If you have them it would be cool to post them in the Luthiers Corner. I am sure that we would all like to see them.
