I am probably the only member of the Dingwall/Wishbass fanned fret owners club (eat your heart out fullie!) Both are extraordinary basses, but the ABI is my true love!

Hi Uncle Balsamic! Are there any questions you would like to ask, or any comparisons I can share?

Is that a truss rod I see poking out of the top of the Wish? :shock:

Yep, at my request, however, the other five I have do not have truss rods and will never need them IMO as the necks are so heavy and immovable.

Is it my imagination or is the fan of the Wish less extreme than that of the Dingwall. Do you happen to know the scale lengths? I guess it's pretty hard to make a direct tonal or feel comparison between them since they are so different.

The scale on the B is 34 inches. The wish sounds like, well, a Fender. The pickups are Fender custom shop samarium cobalt noiseless. I can play them in series or parallel. The output is very anemic compared to the Dingwall (both are passive) but I may install an active preamp in the Wish.

I love the extended range of the Wish, but I am sure that I'd choose the AB I tone-wise
