This is the last project we've been working on for NAMM. It's a little brother to the Afterburner. There are a few details to be worked out and financing to be sourced but the goal is to put this into production at a really attractive street price.

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":ssmaz6ww][quote="Bocete":ssmaz6ww]Any approximations on the release date? Will it be available before Christmas?

Thanks![/quote:ssmaz6ww]

No, we need to get NAMM out of the way first, then we should have some available in early '09.[/quote:ssmaz6ww]

Thanks, keep us informed :wink:

We got word that the NAMM samples are on the way. Just a quick and dirty snapshot from the Factory for now. We'll get the pickguards on and take some shop shots later next week.

They really look nice. I can see myself rocking with one of these (esp the white one). They all look great without the pickguard

Congratulations!!!

You might want to leave the PG off the honey burst.

They all look great without a PG.

They do look great. Can't wait for quality pics :)

Is the white one matte? If it is, I'm going for it, period. Unless there are some more matte finishes available (matte black? :roll: )

Edit:

I guess it's not matte. You can see some light reflected on the upper part of the body.. Too bad. Matte white finish + black pickguard = stunning: [url=http://www.lunaguitars.com/electricproduct/neowhitebass.jpg:3g54wswx]Luna NeoBass[/url:3g54wswx]

Also, a question: I guess the neck chunkiness has been dealt with?

Thanks,
Bocete

Hmmm... look at what I found when I did a Google search for "Dingwall bass Korea", guessing that's where it's being made.

http://rdmgear.com/2008/12/19/dingwall-combustion/


Are those the ones that Jjango rendered?


Did Sheldon ever say what the street price on these basses will be? $1200, IIRC. Looks like it may have changed.

Hope so, Frank.

Speaking of, what's the latest on your mystery Dingwall?

Hi Mark-
Its going to be real interesting when the Combustions come out- esp to see what this "international build" will yield . I know it will have the soul of a Dingwall and lets hope these FD pickups are standard to give it the guts of a Dingwall.

As for the Mystery Dingwall, it still moving ahead, but as you've noticed w/ many Dingwall "projects" -time is fluid and elastic. My new time line appears to be around Tax time 2009-I'm crossing my fingers it happens.

Late to the party...

Sheldon, these basses look great! Can't wait to try the NAMM samples at NAMM in a couple of weeks.

Congrats on the new line.

Yep, that's one of them! Here is a more updated version, with a few color changes Sheldon requested:

Headstock looks really good with the logo. I haven't noticed it before.
