My first Dingwall arrived today. :D I picked up a used AB II w/Arbutus Burl Top. S/N 3929 (in case that helps determine whats in it).

Yes, I'll post pictures once I get through messing with it.

Insanely light. From what I've gathered on the forums here, controls are as follows (left to right):

Volume, Selector (Neck, Both Series, Both Parallel, Bridge), Bass [b:10qi3wsw](this has no indent midway - should it?)[/b:10qi3wsw], Treble (this does have an ident).

BlueQube switch (up is on), Passive/Active (up for active).

Whenever I turn on the BlueQube, I get this terrible hum/buzz. :x :!: Doesn't matter if it is in active or passive. I wanted to check here before opening it up. If I do need to replace something, any thoughts on cost (so I can go back to the previous owner)? Thanks.

Bass is boost only, so no indent. Treble is boost/cut so there is an indent; however, the boost side is active while the cut side is passive; so technically, the preamp is boost/boost only.

Unless the problem with the bluEQube is just a exterior connection, you're not going to be able to do much to it. You should give the shop a call and see about a new unit...I know they have them on hand, but I don't know how much.

Congratulations on owning a life changing bass!

For anyone searching on this in the future:

Problem occurred when the bass was at a 90 degree angle to the amp. I had the switch replaced which I believe helped, but I believe the main issue was related to my amp, a Peavey Max 112 which I use for practice at home. When I play on higher-end amps (Peavey TNT, Roland Cube), there is a very small bit of hum (as expected with a single coil as the BlueQube), but you have to crank it to even hear it.

I've been looking at new amps anyway...
