It seems as if Dingwall basses are the last stop for many bass players but probably not most people's first or only bass.

I'm suprised so many people have over 6 basses!
I only have one right now.
When I finish my project I'll have 2.
When I can afford a Dingwall I'll have 3 (but give me 5 - 10 years on that one, sorry Sheldon :cry: )

One. Gas list starts with a Kubicki X-Factor, then a Steinberger XL 5A. Oh, of course, more Dingwalls. :lol:

I have a Kubicki Ex factor and its been my main axe since 88. I would not part with it. Low action, short scale and extremely fast neck. Sound wise?? Well the guys in my band prefer I play my Dingwall Afterburner. It seems to fill up more space if that makes sense.

Only one for me!

I sold all of my basses because my ABII took away all of their playing time!


I should note here that I am working on acquiring Dingwall #2. I've sent Sheldon the specs, and I'm getting a new job to help fund it. All the money from this job is being sent into two savings accounts: one for my next Dingwall, one for an engagement ring. And you an guess which one is getting a bigger chunk of the change.

If you can't guess, I'll tell you: the DINGWALL!!!! :lol: :twisted:

Yeah, because after the ring... it might be a little harder to get another Dingwall.

I currently own one bass, and I'm finishing my home theatre room/workshop first before I buy another. (though I do have 4 guitars)

Why did I never chime in on this thread? Anyway, in Sept. '05 when this thread was started I had probably 25 basses. That was post-Voodoo, but pre-AB/SJ. Now I'm down to 7 basses and 3 guitars, up from 2 as of last week. (Somebody just gave me a really cool Teisco Del Rey that will fix up nicely with some TLC.) My family is enjoying the extra closet space!

There are future Dingwalls in the planning stage, so the bass number will grow, but I don't plan to ever buy any regular basses again. I just can't get excited about anything but Dingwalls :)

Mark, I am a very bad example. My Dingwall-itis is infectious and contagious. Please keep your sanity and stay away from those "fanned" basses. :P

Bad example? You, Fullie? I want to be just like you, my man, and own ALL the Dingwalls. :wink: Hey, are you telling me to stay away from Dingwalls just so you'll have less competition? :) Very sneaky! :wink:

I've had up to seven basses at once.
Seemed like I was pursuing some ghostly 'tone' that was for sure in this next bass purchase...

Well, this behaviour eventually led me to my beloved AB5. Shortly after this event, my wonderful vintage J and P grew dust and cobwebs. Now, they're on the rack at Bass Northwest.

My second bass is a splendid Rob Allen Deep 5, actual photo (!) -

I really thought AB5 was my last stop.

The Bad News: there's always a new horizon...

Currently the number is 3: DW ABII-5, Music Man Stingray-4, 1976 P-bass. I'll be on my way to two before too long: DW ABII and DW Z (both 5s). I'm not one to keep several instruments that I'm not likely to use.

I've had as many as five basses at once, but I am now down to just my ABII-5. I love it and I love not having any other basses to get between us.

At some point, I want to get another ABII that has the chambered body, the FD3s with Mach2 bridge Pup and the hybrid treble control, but for now, I am supremely happy with my old school ABII with FD1s and mahogony body. It has a fat low-end meaty growl with warm but articulate highs that would make any Warwick lover envious.

It is the shiznit!

Two four-strings and two five-strings. I scored a Skyline Hollowbody off of eBay earlier this year which is strung with Sadowsky flats. Just this week I took delivery of a dual-Dark Star pickup LeCompte. It is strung with DR rounds and is the only instrument I have with a set-neck. These two are mainly for playing blues. I still have my Kinal, but it got modded earlier this year. I had Mike Dolan switch out the Bartolini pickups and install a set of Delano pickups for me. This one wears Deep Talkin' flats. I went back to Dingwall strings for my alder AB-1 a few weeks ago. Plan 'A' is still in effect. When I discovered Dingwall instruments, I figured I'd try an Afterburner & see what I thought. If I liked it, I'd commission a Zebra. Sometime in 2008, there will be a new Cola Burst Z-1 with my name on it and my Afterburner will be up for sale...
