played with a new band the other night. all guys that have been playing since the womb and a couple of them playing in several bands. anyway, the point is they have some awesome gear and are great musicians (much better than I). the guitarist and drummer were both blown away by the look and sound of my super 'p.j.' i'm thinking man, if you like this, wait till next week and i'll bring my abII. :lol:

I love going to stores with my ABII. I can sit here on the forums all day and dream of a Z3, but when I play it next to any other bass, I'm completely satisfied. I went to a couple yesterday, and the only two that even compared were an AB-I 4 and a Pedulla Thunderbolt 5 ($2900, GC). The Pedulla sounded pretty good, but if my ABII was a 10, the ABI was an 8.5 and the Pedulla was an 8. Just killer. So while I was at GC, the head bass guy (John Myung's college roommate) came out from the back because he could hear it in there and it sounded amazing - through the walls! :D Sheldon makes the best instruments in the world, hands down.

I still can't believe the "no gas" part, but it's happened to me too. A couple of years ago I had around 4-5 dream basses on the "to buy" list. Not since I got my prima! All other basses seem primitive. Now I've got gas for more dingwalls... Actually, just an acoustic (if and whenever one comes out). OK, a Z2 or Z3 wouldn't hurt either.

Brother, you're stokin' my fire. 8) My Bronze Age super P/J-4 (w/fatty) is JUST about to leave the shop. Dingwall Sales's last word on ship date was "the end of March". Have you stayed with the standard strings or have you changed? As a luthier, Sheldon is in his own league AND a prince among men. Thanks again, Sheldon!!! Ken

congrats on the p/j, you'll love it. as far as strings go, i love the stock roundwounds on the ABII, but for the super p/j i like a more vintage vibe and keep coming back to the GHS Pressurewounds. i just like the tension/feel/sound of these strings and they work great on the bass too... make sure you get a picture posted when your p/j arrives...

Thanks, brother! Yeah, I asked Dingwall Sales to slip some string sets for my AB in the package to save a bit of shipping cost. I don't think any shops around here have even heard of Dingwalls much less carry strings for them. I haven't tried the GHS pressure wounds yet. I may have to check 'em out, thanks! I will definitely post a pic when I get the opportunity.

I've been playing mine for a few days now. I just can't imagine a jazz bass getting any better than this one. Eight pounds, eleven ounces of ergonomic perfection and sonic bliss. I'm a sucker for a good precision pickup and this NP-4 just 'does it' for my ears. The parallel setting with the Fatty is all I'd ever want a jazz bass to sound like. Wow. Not the same as laying your eyes on this beauty in person, but this is the best image I've captured so far: [url=http://img179.imageshack.us/my.php?image=p1110862.jpg:1d8zdzzc][img:1d8zdzzc]http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/1461/p1110862.jpg[/img:1d8zdzzc][/url:1d8zdzzc] [url=http://g.imageshack.us/img179/p1110862.jpg/1/:1d8zdzzc][img:1d8zdzzc]http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/p1110862.jpg/1/w960.png[/img:1d8zdzzc][/url:1d8zdzzc] Ken
