Anyone in the NYC area wanting to try out a Super J or ABII Arbutus? The Groove Shoppe www.thegrooveshoppe.com Will have these two for 1 week only from Sept 14th - 22nd. Both have Mach II bridge pickups. In the case of the SJ, it's the first Mach II SJ pickup we've done. The Mach II SJ bridge pickup sounds huge. Both have Hipshots. The ABII dropped down to an A is pretty freakin cool.

Sheldon can you fit 2 SJ-5 PU's in the routed area of an FD-3?

[quote="Funkshwey":2wt36gn5]Sheldon can you fit 2 SJ-5 PU's in the routed area of an FD-3?[/quote:2wt36gn5] No, they're too long. We will be developing a Humbucker size shell where we can load it with dual FD3's, dual SJ's or dual Single coils. I've got a lot of design work backed up so it will be a while before we release tit though.

Sheldno, I agree with you on the low A...it hurts sometimes to hear it go that low. Beautiful pair of Dingwalls! I'm digging the red SJ.

Sheldon, Just wanted to let you know that the ABII semi hollow that I tested this weekend was amazing. First experience for me on a 5 string ever. The band couldn't believe the sound of that B. We use to drop to B# and I immediately believe dropping to A sounds freaking. Nice work! Now the tough decision for me: to buy or not to buy... My ABI is my first serious bass ever, so I do not want te sell this friend. My SJ is a life time keeper permanent. Thus, I guess the ABII will be bass nr. three 8)

I agree that the drop tuner is a great addition to an excellent bass. Highly recommended. Did you leave a big bag-o Mach II's at the Groove Shoppe, so we can pick one up at lunch time? Anyone get a Mach II retro-fit? what's the sound like? what's the process involved?

I just might have to make a pilgrimmage to NYC from Buffalo! I would love to compare my old-school ABII with solid mahogony body and FD1s with a latest and greatest version of the ABII. I've also never had the pleasure of trying a SuperJ.
