I have to let this go to fund my new Super J 5 LE that'll be ready next week. When I was looking for an ABII I couldn't find one light enough for my old back (in fact me telling Sheldon this was the reason for chambered bodies on the ABII!) but I finally found this one used and it's right around 8.5lbs. Great feeling neck, very resonant. I'll miss this bass but hopefully the new Super J will ease the pain. I have it up for sale in the store but this is my personal bass and has been very well looked after. Here's a link to the store web page [url:9cn5mee9]http://www.bassandbeyond.com/html/used.php?category=Basses&item=Dingwall%20Afterburner%20II%205[/url:9cn5mee9]

[quote="jimmcobb":2tdo969i]Both basses are sold! I hoped only 1 would need go but offers on both came within hours of each other. So I'm set to pay for my LE Super J 5 and I think it should be ready to ship very, very soon! I think Sheldon will be posting pics before it leaves so keep an eye out for it![/quote:2tdo969i] Awesome Jimm! I bet your stoked!!

[quote="fullrangebass":1nw3ko6z]It is very easy to remove and put back the neck I was very scared to remove the neck from the "Brazil" and place the fretless one. I did it in under 10min (replacing the neck plus the time I took to place the new strings and tune as well!!!)[/quote:1nw3ko6z] Fullie- I get the feeling that you will soon have made a new Dingwall using the Brazil's fretted neck. Am I wrong? It would be a shame to have a Dingwall neck and not use it. Mark

[quote="evilgus":36xjktds]Jim is able to send this via USPS to save postage, but would have to be with neck removed. Does anyone believe this would be difficult to re-assemble? I've taken the neck off a bass before, but not for many years. EG[/quote:36xjktds] I've had the neck off 3 of my Dingwalls, no problems. Be sure to box the neck and body separately, then put them in one box to ship. It saves you about a foot in length and reduces the shipping charges a good bit. Mark

No the Eagle hasn't landed yet, I think it will be completed this Friday! Shipping to Australia seems to have almost doubled since I last sent a bass there. I was quoted $570 by Fedex and this was the cheapest. The PO will only take a package up to 42" in length but the good news is that they only charge $120. I know I'm going to regret letting this one go but whoever gets it is getting a very good one. In fact I also have my old 73 P bass up for sale and whichever goes first means the other will probably be spared!

I've taken the neck off a bass before, but not for many years. EG[/quote:2gzk3ce5] I don't believe you're going to have any problems. The neck is a four bolt and I don't think there are any special considerations, although you may wish to post in the "Ask Sheldon" forum to see if he has any recommendations about special prep for the removal/packaging/reassembly. I bet he's probably sent more necks through shippers than most of us have ever handled in playing!

[quote="fullrangebass":irlfmgwk]Hi Jim this is the only one of your Dingwalls that escaped joining my herd. I got a similar to this AB II last week (expecting it to arrive in my hands tomorrow or Tuesday the latest). I can tell you that you will love your Super J5 (both looks and sounds) Good luck with the sale[/quote:irlfmgwk] Was that the one that was for sale on TB and the guy was from Europe? Does it have FD1's? If so, you will REALLY love that bass!!

Based on the colour, I'd say the body is mahogany. Mine is mahogany and I believe that's what they were using before they switched to walnut.

Well, it could be the picture, but it looks like Mahogany! This would also explain the weight being light. I love my Mahogany ABII!!

Nice Mahogany body. My AB-II with Mahogany body is light and killer. Good luck with the sale and congrats on the SJ5. That is the only other bass I still DAS for right now. Robert
