Ok, here's a pic I found of Leland with a strange guitar. Does anybody know what it is, who made it, or where more pics could be found? Thought it looked pretty cool, but beyond that, I don't know what it is.

Here's another good one for our gallery:

[/quote:vcct48ed][/quote:vcct48ed] Correcting myself on the Moonstone issue: They still exist, but the guitars today tend to look a little more conventional than Sklars 1978 doubleneck..

You can find a couple of others if you flip through the gallery (some probably pretty old). But they are all parallel fretted, so definitely more conventional in that way. There is also another of Leland with that double neck [url=http://www.moonstoneguitars.com/wp-content/gallery/guitar-gallery/sklr.JPG:3lr65wxk]here.[/url:3lr65wxk]

A friend of mine has a Moonstone Explorer-style bass. It mostly just sits in a closet in the case. It's an amazing looking instrument, but it is a brute - it weighs about 20 lbs. :cry: There's earning your money for a gig! :twisted: Mark

Once this thread is dedicated to Mr Lee Sklar, here is his former Dingwall (now in my hands) [img:fksd5z88]http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee282/EEF16011967/Lee%20Sklar%20Dingwall/LeeSklarsigbassfullshot.jpg[/img:fksd5z88] [img:fksd5z88]http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee282/EEF16011967/Lee%20Sklar%20Dingwall/LeeSklarsigbassbodyfront.jpg[/img:fksd5z88] and another picture of the man [img:fksd5z88]http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee282/EEF16011967/Lee%20Sklar%20Dingwall/Me20and20Daryl.jpg[/img:fksd5z88]

That old Dingwall of Sklar's is pretty cool! Which year was it built? Also heard Lee is very pleased with his new Blueberry Z2, and it made the cut on 8 out of 12 songs on it's first studio date. Mr. Sklar is officially in the "Super Phatty"-camp nowadays, I believe :)

The sparkly-red Dingwall looks as if it has a torzal twist neck :)

Should be a 1995 IIRC

Just picked up a copy of the Dutch GitaarPlus magazine april 09 with an article with Lee Sklar. He promotes Dingwall big time, but that we already knew. What I didn't know: he says (quoted but freely translated from Dutch): "[i:33xkoted]We have just spoken on a signature model. A new voodoo model variation, of which all is self made (hardware, electronics, p'ups). It would be my honour to see my name on a Dingwall bass. I really believe in what Sheldon is doing. I have never been the man that just tries everything for free because I am famous. If I promote something, I do play on it. [/i:33xkoted] There's a really funny picture inside the magazine, in which Lee and Sheldon give each other the 'finger' (part of Lee's collection of photo's for a screensaver) :shock: I cannot capture it in my scanner unfortunately.
