Sheldon, Hello. I just snagged my first Dingwall. It was going to be the Combustion, but I had an ABI cross my sights and I had to have it. I am now a convert. My wife (who does not care about my basses) said she loves this one better than any I have ever had. That is a mighty list too. Fodera Imperial chestnut top, Zon, Modulus etc.... I agree!!!!! My question is this. Since you do your own pups, why don't you make the shape more parallel with the strings? Meaning, the pickups stay their current position, but the ends where you place your thumb stay parallel with the strings. That would give is a flat surface to put our thumbs. I hope this has not been addressed yet, but it was something I noticed on a Sandberg Panther I saw today. Peace, Chris

Hi Chris, We wanted the pickups to be backwards compatible with older basses. On the SJ and PA pickups we addressed this by radiusing the ends. I agree though, the parallelogram would likely feel the best.

Ahhhh, duh. That makes sense. Thank you for getting back to me. I mostly rest my thumb on the B-string anyway, but from time to time I sit it on the pup. Anyway, you make an amazing instrument!!! I plan to order or buy a Super J soon. Peace, Chris

For what it's worth, I have the same technique. It did feel strange to me at first, but I got used to resting my finger on the top corner of the pickup pretty quickly. I'd still prefer a flat surface, but I don't think about it anymore, after a while it's not an issue. Enjoy your dingwall and welcome aboard!
