Oh, it found a home, alright. It'll be a good home for the Dingwall but not for most of my other basses for much longer!

Too bad. The seller is selling another bass, and it seems they were both posted on EBay at the same time. It seems he needed cash.

They are also chambered, mine is, but I'm not sure when did they start doing that. I know that for some time they were chambered without f-holes.

That's even more confusing. So with an exotic top it can still be an AB1. With a preamp and with or without an exotic top it's an AB1.5. With a preamp, chambered body and premium body wood it's an AB2? And a maple fretboard makes it an ABZ, right? Is that passive? Is there an option to get an exotic top, preamp and/or premium body wood on an ABZ? Man, the website needs to get updated.

The ABZ is the stripped down version of an AB-I. They always have a maple fretboard and a matte body finish, and cannot be fretless. The other specs are those of an regular AB-I.

[quote="davio":152133w0] Am I the only one who thinks $2300 is a bit steep for a used AB1? [/quote:152133w0] I briefly owned that exact bass. Ordered it from Ed Roman and one of the pups produced no sound. I sent it back for another color and he sent that one back to SK for repair. FWIW it's not a "true" green, but a weird sort of teal-not my thing at all.

I always thought the ABZ were not a stripped down ABI, but a different cat. Its an ASH body w/ maple neck/maple fingerboard-AKA punchy sounding bass, like the Z bass, and thats where i figured the name came from. From what i've seen, AB tends to be made w/ whatever tonewood Sheldon deemed special at the time. My two ABI are made of maple or adler w/ maple necks, but not maple fingerboard. The ABII were initially made w/ mahogany, then walnut, but the ABI remained Maple or alder. Now w/ the ABZ- they're ash. just my 2 pesos
