damn this thing is sexy
Oh, good gracious! I'm GASsing for one so much right now! Kind of reminds me of the Stevens Guitars Slanted model bass...
I believe that was actually built by Jack Read. I've seen it advertised for sale several times.
..."Sexy"...for a pimp...
Thats not a Dingwall as posted above. Its just a Fanned Fret bass.
Yup and that same owner had a Bone Avatar 12'er fretted-to fretless SC bass as well... Can't remember which TB'er it was, but it has been on BassGear a couple times... Definitely Made by Jack Read IIRC.
Sweet looking bass, like the chickenhead knobs and Sperzals... nice touch.
Sweet looking bass..... but not a Dingwall.
Sheldon Dingwall's Jazz inspired basses (tentativiely called a SuperJ) are not available yet, however there is a photo of one of his prototypes floatin around
Jack Read is correct.
I was just thinking about him this morning. Great guy.
According to the current ebay auction, the bass was made by Jack Read, but the fret slots were cut by Sheldon D. However unlikely that may sound.
So how about it, Sheldon-- true or not? To quote the auction:
I'm betting that Sheldon did the slotting.
/agree, he uses a CNC machine, so prolly not a hard thing for him to do
Does he use CNC for slotting? Very cool if that's the case.
We did do a custom slotting job on a BE maple fingerboard for Jack a couple of years ago. It's probably this one, but I can't say for sure.
We'll use CNC for custom one-off slotting using a .025" router bit, but it's slow. For production slotting, we make a fixture for our fret slotting saw which is a manual machine.
When doing a custom slot job on a manual machine, what measurements do you need to be supplied with in order to make precise slots?
Cool, I wasnt 100%
