    The coloring on that Dingwall is amazing. I love her facial expressions it has in all the pictures too!

    The Geddy isn't too bad either.

    The cat is a she umm.. a cat I found in the woodpile like 7 years ago no idea what "kind".

    Dog is a male, pit bull/lab mix that I got from a rescue place awhile back. All the pictures are taken mid/post bark (hence the funny looks).

    i love the purple wall~!
    makes the basses really pop out (visually).

    non-interior design question:
    isn't hard to go from a fanned fret bass to one that isn't?
    switching, i mean.
    must take a while to develop the muscle memory.
    i know i would have a tough time going back and forth.
    (but i'm a klutz in general)

    Yeah, he has that whole Scooby Doo "Arrrrou??" look going on.

    Maybe you should get a tort pickguard to match your cat. :D
     
  12. Did you send your pets to SIMS Custom LEDs by mistake? ;)

    Great basses!
     
  13. You are lucky that the 'd' is not next to the 't' on the keyboard otherwise you could have had an unfortunate accident leading to a prompt call from the FBI and a lifetime ban from talkbass!

    Mind you I've only had the Geddy for a couple of days as I've been rolling solo with the Dingwall since like May. That said, when it came I pulled it out of the box, inserted into my case and drove to band practice. While there was some additional flubbing it mostly revolved around the fact it has one string less.

    A to B in compare two days... (note: I'm not that good... I just like pretty things)

    The Geddy is Much MUCH MUCH brighter then my Dingwall... I would guess strings/single coil/maple fretboard. This added a lively punch into this "corn punk" song that we do.

    The AB1 has this smooth sound that I love in our "mood rockers" and I just couldn't replicate it with the Geddy at practice (maybe if I fiddled with the amp more it would be possible).

    I'm a bad slapper, but I fool with it (trying to learn as much as I can). The fender is significantly easier for me at this point in my technique. I think the fact that the end of the fretboard isn't angled contributes to this

    The Geddy feels a little "easier" on my hands (I have small man hands 7inch from edge of palm to tip of middle finger) and sometimes the 37inch scale of the AB1 is work. I tend to avoid the notes near the nut on the EADG and play that stuff starting on the 5th fret of the B. This did present some complications for me when playing the 4.
