Hello Dingwall family! I just wanted to introduce myself after being a lurker the past couple months and show off my AB-I and future Z3. I have to give Burningskies credit for making me see the light in Dingwall. I was in the market for my first 5 string bass and saw his Rasta-burst bass over on the talkbass forum. From that day on I had been reading and watching every video I could find on youtube and on the talkbass/dingwall forums. I ended up buying an AB-I secondhand on ebay and love it! My current bass before the AB-I is a G&L L2000 and even with the Afterburner being 5 strings, the AB-I seemed so much easier to play. The biggest adjustment for me was not the fanned frets but actually the added scale length. Now when I go back to my G&L it feels so unnatural. One thing I was missing with the AB-I was all the tonal possibilities that I had with the G&L (active/passive, series/parallel, treble boost) and after GASing over a Z3 I finally placed my order! Future Z3: 5 string, 3-band Glockenklang, walnut neck, birdseye maple fretboard with speedo bars, wenge contrasting layer, and quilted redwood top. Here is my AB-I and my Z3’s top wood: [img:346ijce4]http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f161/Itieknots7/20111228_162023.jpg[/img:346ijce4] [img:346ijce4]http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f161/Itieknots7/quitled-redwood-1180.jpg[/img:346ijce4] I apologize for the crappy AB-I pics and will do a photo shoot after I get my Z3 sometime around May.

Well done... You're traveling through another dimension -- a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call "The Twilight Zone". [img:1bav9jl0]http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GDdxrSXB7kQ/TY7Zru-1foI/AAAAAAAAAXY/kVchit0R4ko/s1600/TZ.jpg[/img:1bav9jl0]
