Is that a... mother ...bucker? ;) I reckon Gary Willis would dig it, ramp and pickup all rolled into one. Seriously how many p/ups are under that shell? [img:1g1pir06]http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r200/xt660/wow.jpg[/img:1g1pir06]

Two FD3's. Its just two pickups and a ramp in a single casing.

FRB now owns this bass. It was originally for a Brazilian owner. Originally dubbed the 'snotburst' it was later dubbed the 'Brazil' in honor of its first home. It has a mahogany (?) neck I believe. The current incarnation is as a fretless, which Sheldon built for it after the fact. The bass is indeed a Z-1 with the standard pickups underneath an integrated 'ramp'.

I've always wondered why the snotburst was like that. Just a slap ramp then?

It is certainly an interesting combination, I am amazed at how many rarities like this come out of the Dingwall factory. That ramp is both functional and beautiful!

Hi there I know it's a LOOOOOOOOONG time since I posted here, but my devotion to Dingwall basses has not the least changed. I have turned this bass into a fretless, and I am loving it!!!

Hey Fullie :) This place is not the same without you, as if 50% of all Dingwalls in the world disappeared :)

Greeting and I know we are going back into the archives for this one, but I have a similar Z1 to which I'd like to add a ramp. Could one be done to work with my Cherryburst Z1? Still groovin' it after 6 years or so. I have someone who could make it if the dimensions are available. Many thanks. ... Mark

Mark[/quote:2q51d8ks] it looks like the Brazil has the whole area under the ramp routed out, with the pickups apparently attached or otherwise contained within the ramp. I'm guessing you don't want that. There have been a couple of members who have put ramps on their Dingwalls, but I don't recall who. Might have been forum member Erwin. Anybody remember?

I don't recall every seeing anything other than the Brazil with that setup. If you shoot Sheldon an email and explain your situation, he'll likely be willing to help you. It is my understanding that the cover you see is the only cover over the pu's. Sort of a "double pickup". Maybe I'm wrong. :?

Ed, please explain the layout and construction of The brazil, once and for all. Thanks.
