Hey gents! I'm new to the forum, just bought my first Dingwall bass and this was the guitar that got me into fanned instruments, figured I'd share here since it seems like you guys are on the same page when it comes to multiscale instruments (I know I look like crap in the pics, they were from last year and I had LITERALLY just gotten home from 15 days in the hospital so they were just snapping pics as it had arrived while I was still in the hospital):

It's such a killer guitar, love it so much! There is a video up on youtube (same userid as here) that I posted when my buddy Misha (Bulb from the band Periphery) was hanging out at my place just jamming on it. :) It was built by Daniel Memory @ Oni guitars down in Australia, very talented guy and has a passion for fanned fret/extended range instruments as well! I guess you could say his guitar is what made me comfortable enough to buy another fanned instrument sight unseen, so in a way he scored you another sale Sheldon (well, the fact that your basses are absolutely stunning probably didn't hurt either! :lol: )!

Nice guitar. It's amazing how many design cues are very similar to Sheldon's work. How much does it weigh, and what would you compare the tone to?

Yeah Dan's been building guitars/basses for years, not sure who built what first. :lol: I don't think I've ever actually weighed it but I'd say probably 4lbs or less easily, it's a featherweight being that the core is all sitka spruce and it's wrapped in Carbon Fiber. :D Tonewise it's hard to say, it is very clear and can get aggressive (I play mostly metal). The pickups are wound by Dan himself, I just gave him an idea of what I was looking for and he got pretty close! They split very well too, can get all the quacky positions when the push-pull is engaged, but the neck sounds thick and full (jazzy I'd say) and the bridge is not [b:2gthm867]overly[/b:2gthm867] bright but definitely leans that direction.

Here's a link to the video I mentioned earlier:

[url:2gthm867]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5DYw06-W9Y[/url:2gthm867]

That was through my old rig which was a VHT CLX head into a 2x12 VHT cab with V-30s, should give you a decent idea of how it sounds although it was recorded on my iPhone. :roll: :lol:

Periphery! Don't see alot of people who know about those guys. And the bassist plays a Dingwall AB-5 string.

Thats a super cool guitar. Your friend Dan looks like he does nice work.

Yeah Misha has been a buddy of mine for several years now, such a fun guy to hang out with and his skills on guitar/bass/drums are exceptional! :mrgreen: Tom has at least one Dingwall, although he's not using them live anymore since he got endorsed by Ibanez. :(

LOL! That's what I was thinking GW!

One piece cf guitar with wood fb and knobs? That's pretty cool!

My bro played a cf guitar once and he said it sounded amazing! Makes sense. Carbon fiber is about as close to wood as we can make.

Sheldon, when are you tooling up for single piece 7 str cf basses? :twisted:

Uhhhhhhh. What? Misha? You're friends with Misha? Corey (my drummer/best friend) would poop his pants. His favorite song, well, most people's favorite song by them is Icarus Lives cause that riff that Jake (on his "seven strings of wonder") does is super catchy. Metal isn't my thing, but I sure do appreciate the tallent. Crazy good.

I don't know how close with Misha you are, but Corey's birthday just came by, and I didn't get him anything. I will pay you enough money to buy their new EP, have it shipped, and have enough left over for you to buy a case of beer, if you could get the EP signed and sent to me. I realize this is alot to ask especially since we don't know each other, but it can't hurt to ask right? I am willing to wait as long as it takes.

Yeah I would say Misha is a pretty close friend, we've been hanging out for like 4 years now. 8) He's a really cool dude too, very friendly and super creative (I'm a bit jealous, tbh! :lol: ). Do you use Facebook at all? I would say add him on there and ask him if he has any copies of the EP left because I haven't seen him in like 2-3 months now, he's been busy with touring and IIRC they're down in a studio recording drums for some upcoming material (Face Palm Mute was the pending name of the song I think he said? :lol: ). We used to hang on a pretty regular basis but with the touring and recording going on recently I'm not sure when the next time I'll get to see him will be, so I'd say getting ahold of him directly might get it to your buddy a bit faster. Misha is really laid back, I'm sure if he gets back home and can get ahold of a copy of the EP he would sign it and send it to Canada for your buddy.

I'll text him though and ask him when the next time he'll get back to DC will be and if it's soon I'll hit you back and see if I can help out. :)

Oh btw if you search my vids on youtube, I think I had a couple from when he first played an Axe-Fx (it was my Standard, before he even bought one! :shock: ) at my old apartment like 3-4 years ago. :D

Wow thats great you would do that for me. I was sceptical, but it seems most people on this forum would go above and beyond for people they don't know. I really appreciate it.

I'll search him out and send him a message. Do you mind if I drop your name? Might help me out a bit :) . I can only immagine how creative that guy is.

I'll check out your vids when I get a chance. I don't have my own computer (I know, I know) so I do all this at work on my breaks.

I really really appreciate you helping me out, that is amazing. Thank you so much. I'll keep you posted on what happens with my conversation with Misha.

Thanks again.
Tyler
