In your opinion, what is the sound difference between the Afterburner I and Afterburner II models, assuming the II is being played in passive mode?

Bump because I'm interested too. I've never played an AB-1. In fact, I've never even played any other Dingwalls beside my own. I didn't even play mine before buying it. I had read tons and tons of reviews and never heard of anyone that tried a Dingwall and not liked it, so I jumped on it. And I haven't looked back :D

Funny enough, I can answer that question now although it might be dated since the ABII has been updated. One mine (the older, no scroll hole version of the ABII and both pre-Mach II bridge pickups), the ABII has a bit more of a mid range cut to it over the ABI. Also, the ABII feels a little more sexy and smooth. Both sound great though, so either is a really good choice. I've have been playing my ABI considerably more these days, but for no particular reason.

I'd like to try an ABI just to compare it to my ABII (also an older model without the MachII pickup althought it has FD-3's, no scroll hole, no tone chambers, and no hybrid treble knob [yet]).

When I got my ABII at Jive sound, I played both that bass and an ABI (the one currently owned by Mike, aka "Max Vintage"). To my ears, the ABI was a much brighter sounding bass than the ABII in passive mode. If I owned an ABI, I probably would actually use the passive treble roll-off, which I virtually never use on any of my passive basses. The ABII, on the other hand, usually benefits from a little active treble boost.
