51 views and no comments. I like AR's tours of gear. He can play and doesn't waste your time with that typewriter on crack slap style... the bass looks great and sounds awesome. If only the bass came with his accent. And come on... I had the same reaction he did when I saw the bass.

He does have a cool accent. Of course he would say, what accent?

It is a nice bass! I am curious what it would sound like with all three pickups on.

[quote="Smallmouth_Bass":28bf0dqt]It is a nice bass! I am curious what it would sound like with all three pickups on.[/quote:28bf0dqt] In series! I notice the pickup combos seem to be parallel rather than with a series option like the AB1. Incidentally, does anyone know if the switching is the same for the 3 pickup option on the AB1?

Hey Dingwall brothers, what accent? :) Joking apart, I was going to open a thread to officially present the bass but I just discovered you already did that. Thank you very much!! I really love how that bass sounds (versatility is important as far as I'm eclectic and I play different genres), also I think that the white gloss finish with the black hardware is a great combination! I'm pretty sure that the bass will sound even better in the next months. You know.. the more you play a new bass... The video review is going very well, more than 1000 views in a few days, glad that people liked it. Actually Sheldon and I never discussed about having 3 pickups connected at the same time, I have to say that the Z3 configuration is enough for me. I'm gonna post more videos and sound samples in the future. For any curiosity, feel free to ask me! Again, many thanks to the great master Sheldon!!! have a great weekend! Alberto

After having the prototype of the ABZ XXX, or AB3 whatever its being called.(viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2535) The 3 pickuped ramp style bass from Dingwall, i would say "yes", this bass has the same switching as the Ab1XXX ABZ3, etc. Unfortunately there is no series tone, Sheldon stated that he wires the SR- tone (Z2 style, the back 2 pickups) in parallel to balance better w/ the front "p"- tone pickup. So you get a more scooped sound from the Z2(SR) tone instead of punchy-louder series tone. Thats said, the bass uses a standard 4 way p'up selector offering front "P" tone" only-the SR(Z2) tone-P&J(front and rear in parallel), and rear only(bridge p'up solo), There is no all p'ups on. The3 p'up arrangements are very versatile and can "cop" just about any standard tone, (P, J, P/J and SR like) I see Alberto has jumped in and replied he didnt ask for a 3 p'ups all on.

I was wondering about the middle and neck pickup together... kind of like a Hofner cavern bass. However, i'm sure all combinations have been tested and what we get is the stuff that works.

Although I don't think I would ever need a setting with all three pickups on, I must say that I am very happy with the mods I did to my Z3, which included the installation of a 5-position rotary switch that gives me the option of soloing the middle pickup. This setting, with the middle pickup in series (referring to the internal connection of the two coils), has a very nice sound, especially when using a pick. Of course the AR model uses the FD3 pickups rather than the SF pickups on the Z3. In any event, the AR model looks like a very versatile bass, and is visually very appealing as well. Congratulations Alberto!

[quote="FrankM":4p09rnpj] Unfortunately there is no series tone, Sheldon stated that he wires the SR- tone (Z2 style, the back 2 pickups) in parallel to balance better w/ the front "p"- tone pickup.[/quote:4p09rnpj] Just to clarify, the bridge/middle combination is in series. It's the bridge and middle pickups themselves that are internally wired in parallel. Those wanting more oomph out of the bridge soloed or bridge/middle position can re-wire the pickup leads in series but at the expense of having a greater difference in output between rotary switch positions. We tested all the combinations during the development phase and felt that for the majority of playing situations, P-tone in neck, parallel middle, parallel bridge wired to our standard Z3 rotary switch (neck, neck/bridge in parallel, middle/bridge in series, bridge) gave the most useable variety of tones and levels.

[quote="Bocete":2l2n0mcj]This is the thing! If I only I needed a third Dingwall..[/quote:2l2n0mcj] We always need a third Dingwall :lol: Kiddin' ... not at all :) I can confirm what Sheldon wrote: this bass is the most balanced I've ever tried. I'm attaching some pics of the baby, sorry for the late but I've been very busy!
