I was checking Bass and Beyond's web site last night and noticed an announcement about the SJ-5. Turns out they have a 12 bass exclusive for a Limited Edition SJ-5 (signed and numbered by Sheldon), which includes a flame maple top (no pickguard) and a trans finish. I didn't get all the details, but the long awaited SJ-5 is very much close to a reality. Looks like somebody could have one of these in their hands by the end of the year!

I think the SJ5 is going to be a big hit for DDG. Good news, but I was expecting that we would hear about the debut of the SJ5 from Sheldon first, with pix and everything, instead of through the grapevine. So, is this the announcement that wins the free DDG Tshirt for some lucky person?
Anyway, it's good to see that the trans finish and fancy top for the SJ wasn't just a dream. I had also requested my SJ4 with a rear rout, but Sheldon declined at the time. I predict that people will soon be asking for SJ headstocks that match the top wood on the body (hint). Great minds think alike, eventually, I guess. :wink:

To be honest I didn't feel good about announcing the LE on our website before Sheldon had made an official announcement himself about the launch of the SJ5. I certainly didn't want to appear to be trying to steal some of Sheldon's thunder.

I checked with Dingwall Sales and asked for Dingwall's blessing and then checked in with him again before I posted to our website. He, and hopefully Sheldon, were totally cool with me making an announcement.

Like everybody else I can't wait to see pictures!
