I know we have an Ebay watch, but this bass deserves its own thread Purple Afterburner prototype on Ebay built in 2000 http://cgi.ebay.com/Dingwall-4-string-A ... dZViewItem

Yes, it does deserve it's own thread. It's stunning. Thank you, Frank. Am I the only one who is hoping for the return of non-burst finishes? :) Anybody else? Mark

As a customer, I'm in favour of anything that increases choice of finishes. However, from the luthier's standpoint, more than a few choices becomes costly/time-consuming, so I understand why the AB1 offers the bursts only. Sheldon is quite accomodating as far as Z colours go. What I find a bit of a bummer is that the AB2 comes only in bubinga and......... nicer bubinga; that's pretty limiting (although it's a great looking finish) for what is a pretty pricey bass.

I'm not a fan of the walnut wood colour. That's why I'm happy mine is mahogany! I like the bursts. Now a white ABI with a matching headstock, that might be interesting...

I am wierd in that I like solid colors, especially metallics. I guess it's the 80's rocker in me. Of course you probably won't see me with a lime green or hot pink bass. I have owned several natural finished basses, and they never did it for me. As far a bursts go, my favorite finnish on any instrument ever is that blue-green 6 string Z-2 on the website. One of these days I want a bass finished just like one of those spiral tie-dye t-shirts. Sheldon, you think you could make that happen?

I really like the pink, but on a SJ I picture it more with a white guard.

In fact I still have a pointy headstock Charvel guitar that I noodle on from time to time. One of my main guitars in high school was a red BC Rich Warlock with tiger stripe cavity covers, and I drooled over a snakeskin finished Warlock at a local shop for the longest time.

I could see Jens coming up with some piece of wood with a "radial flame" pattern, and then having the interest and taking the time necessary to dye it that way.

Back when I worked in the guitar shop, we had a Jackson with a Road Runner and Coyote desert scene painted on it. It was one of the coolest things I had seen. Here is one kinda similar. We had several of these custom finished models back in the day.

[quote="lomo":zqg5wrwz]If it was a 5 I might've considered it.[/quote:zqg5wrwz] If it came fitted with an "Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator" I might have considered it. :wink: I really really want a 4 string AB, and I had a hard time not bidding on it. But I am broke right now and that one was priced a little high for a four string. I priced a new one for only a couple hundred more not too long ago.

"If it came fitted with an "Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator" I might have considered it." Yeah, those modulators are great for eliminating heavenly bodies from my view of Venus.......but they really eat those 9V batteries! PS-Can someone pm me instructions on including quotes in those cute white boxes, without my crude copy/paste method?

Burningsky just posted the Purple proto on talkbass. I suspect now- esp at a sub 1000 price, it will go bye-bye
