Let's have some fun with what's driving me nuts. I'm sponsoring a pool to guess when SJ5 #1 will ship. The forum member who guesses closest will win his/her choice of Dingwall T-shirt, beanie or ball cap (subject to stock availability) at my expense. It won't matter if the guess is before or after the actual date, only how close it is. Dingwall employees, owners and their families, pets, concubines, gardners, intestinal parasites and barbers, past or present, are not eligible. I have no inside scoop on the date, will be the sole arbiter of this contest, and will rely on Dingwall Sales and Sheldon for the correct answer. All entries must be entered into this thread within 72 hours of this post. 1 per contestant, please. In the unlikely event of a tie, the winner will be decided based on a series of Monty Python trivia questions. Finally, I won't formally participate, but my unofficial prediction is New Year's Day 2008! All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth and a bright orange SJ5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May 17, 2008 (May 17 was my Mom's birthday and I'm guessing that 1 year from now is about right)

Even though I think I will get the date wrong I place my guess on Oct 1st 2007. I am sure that Sheldon is putting all his efforts to please (and to get us more hooked) all Ding-aholics.

Feb. 14, 2008 Let's see. When I win, I have a beanie, cap, and T-shirt. I guess that leaves a Prima. Yeah, that'll do. I'll take the Prima, thank you sir.

hey Lomo cool contest. Anything to push Sheldon's buttons, no? What odds that the first SJ5 turns out orange? Playing long odds: my sweetie's birthday Dec. 11, 2007 is my entry. Here's hoping Grey

Hope fo rit on the 2 of 0ctober 2007. In fact I have to admit that I'm much more waiting for seafom green Super P with 18 mm strings spacing, reverse painted headstock, P and MM mics, oBP 3 preamp with a twisted (angled) neck to avoid arm problems. My best to all of you, especially to the Dingwall crew. PS: I'm the lucky owner of the 3822 blue Super J (with P/J config.). Alex

I vote for January 4th, my honey's birthday. However, let's skip the question about airspeed velocity of an unladen sparrow, please. :) Mark

January 17th, 2008. Aka, the NAMM show. Good times, though, it will be worth the wait. Just as long as my Z gets finished first! Rob

Well, Funk, I really hope the June 15th guess is right, but since Dingwall Sales hasn't even accepted my deposit from Bass Northwest yet, I think its' Fantasy Island..............nevertheless, hope springs eternal!

Just curious, is there any word on the SJ5 street price in US dollars yet? Also, was the string spacing ever decided on? Zac

I've heard/seen zip. I assume it'll be a tad more $$ than a SJ4. Don't know if the DW braintrust has decided on spacing, but I can't imagine 17-gotta be 18 or (hopefully for me) 19mm.

Sheldon's current best guess is around mid-Sept. If that's correct, then the Dingwall duds will be going to Greece for modelling by Fullrange. Whoever wins, we'll just have to have a pic to make sure the fit is acceptable :-)

As I originally posted, the target date for the pool is the SHIPPING date of SJ #1. I sent a check to Sheldon this week to cover the cost, and I'll wait for him to confirm the date.

Well, mid September has come and gone and I have yet to see the first SJ5 picture (which I imagine will be posted here). So I guess my early November guess is still in the running! :D
