Hey Sheldon, I've always wanted to get my hands on a switchblade model which got me thinking about how many you actually made. Do you have an idea how many builds were completed before stopping production? Thanks, Nate...

THIS IS THE VERY FIRST AFTERBURNER II (AB2) EVER BUILT!!!! It's the actual prototype for the entire line. Built in 2002, it is serial #3405. Because it was a prototype the serial # doesn't appear on the bass itself. All information can be confirmed ...

Hey Sheldon, I was wondering what you would recommend to configure the 3X pickups to all be on at once? I have an older ABZ and it doesn't have your current rotary selector. Thanks for your help!...

Hey Sheldon, Like the title says. I'm curious why the gotoh closed tuners vs the hipshots? I've noticed the use of both and I have both. Do they have a unique characteristic of some sort? Thanks in advance and my apologies if this was covered previ...

Hey Sheldon, I asked this over in basses too so I apologize for the crosspost. What are the EQ centerpoints on the EMG preamp in the new Combustions? Also, are the newer rounded style pickups the FD3's? Thank you sir....

Hey Sheldon, Do you guys use bubinga at all anymore? Is it still possible to get a neck or a body in bubinga? If not, I'm curious why not? Is there some CITIES on it low or something? Is it hard to work with? Thanks, Nate...

I don't have any experience with headless basses but I do have a curiosity to try them. I was just wondering what everyone's opinion on them is. [img:2dracw21]https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/s640x640/sh0...

Hi guys. Wondered what products most of you guys use or recommend for general upkeep and cleaning of your Dingwalls. I've got an NG2-5, and I've noticed almost every product that came in my Dunlop guitar care kit has a warning for not using them ...

Will there be any way to tell the pickup type (FD3, FDV, SF2, P-Tone) of the new rounded pickups without removing the pickup? I realize having one shell saves costs, but maybe there is a way to engrave them before putting the guts in or something. ...
