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.

Will the new Combustion be available in a 6 string? Also, what options, if any, are there for tops/natural finishes? I'm in love with a flamed maple AB1 6 that I saw on TB but I kinda want to get in one the first batch of Combustions too, so why not combine my loves?

Anyway, thanks for any and all info, I'll be looking forward to the new model :D

[quote="FrankM":hj1mh6lj]Yeah-- That New Dingwall sound (tm)....
I'm all about this, anything that Glenn from Fury guitar can help you w/ pickup -wise I'm all about.
IMHO the FD1 fury inspired are the best sounding Dingwall Pickup available.
So let hope you guys move forward on another collaboration[/quote:hj1mh6lj]

+2 I love em as well,

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":1uv04ff5][quote="Joe Smithebrger":1uv04ff5]Any updates? New pics? Heck...anything?[/quote:1uv04ff5]

Hi Joe,

We're waiting on a sample (hopefully the final one) to arrive the first week of November.

At this end we've finalized the pickups and are about to re-tool the production process with help from Fury Guitar.

It's been pretty challenging trying to come up with a design that's cost effective and sounds good. We recently had a break-though that's taken us in a total new direction with regard to pickup design. Along with that an exiting new direction in tone.

So, for the pickup tweakers, there will be new pickups on the horizon after we get the Combustion out and running.[/quote:1uv04ff5]

Cool! Looking forward to finding out about the new design...and also a "New Dingwall Sound" (tm).

[quote="Willem":2xlt7m3t]Will there be passive versions available?
Like some lakland skylines which have a preamp as an option...

Cause I like passive better...[/quote:2xlt7m3t]

According to Sheldon, it's 2-band EQ and active/passive switching.

Not to hijack the thread but some of my Dingwalls are fully passive with non-Dingwall electronics, and you actually need 4 holes. The results are just amazing (not in the Dingwall side of tone though, in terms of clarity). It's the only Dingwall mod I have actually allowed myself (the result justified the thought)

I'm pretty sure it's active only, but nothing's stopping you from ripping the electronics out :)

That color reminds me of the Ernie Ball MusicMan Dargie Delight special edition basses / guitars. Very cool color, but even on an "entry level" Dingwall I would still prefer a natural or trans finish...I just like seeing the wood.

[quote="BurningSkies":1kwi3jaj]Wait a second...I'm the one who's been agitating for that color for about 3 years now!!! My 'back-burner' dream dingwall is a fretless in that color! I believe though, and I know that Sheldon will say if this is wrong...that it's a color that's difficult to shoot and may currently be 'sworn off' by the shop![/quote:1kwi3jaj]
Three years is a bit before my forum time! :oops:

But here's a fretless version to make up for my noobishness!
