Another bass player at a show I was doing Sunday night spent a little time chatting with me afterward. There were a few fun comments that came out of it. I showed him my ABII, and he started drooling. Some things he said: -"Oh my God dude. That's crazy!" -"This bass is gorgeous!" -"The setup on this is amazing" then I told him to try it out: "WOW. The feel is unbelievable" "I wish I wasn't so poor from that Eden rig" and finally, "I've seen boutique basses before, but I've never played one until now!" On a side note, Sheldon's incredible instruments and service have convinced me to never buy another brand again!

I knew there was one thing I was forgetting! I just remembered when I woke up this morning. One of the bands I'm in has a female lead singer/rhythm guitarist. 20 years old, but a small girl, short fingers. She's also a bass player. She enjoys pointing me out at shows, saying things like, "Nate Cook on bass! And if you can't see in the back, his bass has *6* strings!" Anyway... The other day, we were getting ready for practice when the jack on her guitar falls apart. Being somewhat of a guitar repairman, I got right on it. After I finished, I started "testing" it, i.e. ripping a sweet little solo. :wink: She picks up my bass and plays for a minute until we're done jamming. She said that every time she looked at it, it looked really hard to play, mostly because of it having 6 strings. When she actually picked it up, it was really easy! I had never thought that someone with tiny hands could play a 6, but she said her only problem was reaching the B-string. She attributed this to the extremely thin neck. I knew it made a difference for me, but I never thought it would help someone with hands as small as hers play a 6 - and comfortably. Great job, Sheldon :)

[quote="Pesty":12voopal]The more I read these forums... the more I think this is a cult... Did I hear someone say the kool-aid is served? :p[/quote:12voopal] I've noticed that. I'm not big on brand loyalty. If it's a bigger company, I definitely don't care. I use Apple computers, but only because Microsoft doesn't offer a better OS. If MS offered something better, I'd switch back. If some other manufacturer offered a better fanned-fret bass than a Dingwall, with the same amazing service as Sheldon offers, I might consider it. But seeing as that will never happen, I'm a Dingwaller for life! :lol: [quote="Brim":12voopal]Eden rig + Dingwall is even better....I'd keep the rig and pony up for the Dingwall![/quote:12voopal] I love that warm Eden sound. I prefer a more hi-fi, sterile tone (like my SM-400S) for a Dingwall. It really lets that crazy clean Dingwall sound through!
