These are going to GuitarX in Denver. Gary has committed to a run of 12 Limited Edition Quilt top ABIIs. The 6 is a fretless. He managed to talk us into a Buckeye one as well. Gary can be a persuasive dude when he wants to :)

Just for future use, if I were to order an ABII and includ the point in the price list called [quote:1hqvmb5x]X-Top package - highly figured exotic top, contrasting laminate.[/quote:1hqvmb5x] would that look something like the basses in this thread? Could I specifically get something looking like one of these? Or are the transparen color/burst ABIIs reserved for GuitarX?

It's been a while since this thread had some content. Here's one on it's way to GuitarX. It's a fretless 6 setup for tons of Mwah. Brown and blue are tough colors to make look right together, but this one just works.

[quote="GuitarX":37rrsv0k]Thanks Jeff! This black cherry finish looks way better in the flesh than those pictures show. It's darker and much richer looking. The stain over the walnut body looks amazing as well, and the color looks great with the walnut neck and wenge board. This one really tugs at my heart strings. I will definitely be doing more in this finish. 8) I hope all is well with you all now that the government owns GM... :roll:[/quote:37rrsv0k] All is well so far, I'm writing from Strasburg Va where we sell parts to the new Camaro for an instrument cluster manufacturer. That car is going like gangbusters, we are at 185% of quoted capacity producing these parts, so someone somewhere is buying them. I'll let the annals of history decide if this was a good move for the US government to get involved in, but I am of the opinion the status quo needed shaking up at GM over 30 years ago. It may be too late, or it may be just in time, we will see. Pray for a speedy recovery, that would put my bass acquisition back on track! Jeff

[quote="John H.":1clfwdfm][quote="Evolver":1clfwdfm] I am one VERY happy customer and proud to be a new Dingaholic![/quote:1clfwdfm] That about sums it up. That's great that you're so pleased with the new ABII. Your post should be required reading for anyone considering buying a Dingwall sight unseen. Congrats and enjoy. John[/quote:1clfwdfm] Thanks John! And, I did indeed order my ABII without having ever played a Dingwall (or any other fanned-fret bass for that matter) and only once had seen one in person. I'm very glad I took the risk; certainly, the good folks on this forum helped convince me and I'm grateful for all the input!

I had been thinking there would be no point in a fretless Dingwall, until I saw that. What a nice companion to my fretted 6 that would be.

They are breath taking, really. Especially the fretless one made me run and grab my fretless. Now I know why I am lusting after Dingwalls. Sheldon, you are one bad influence on me!!!! :wink:

That maple topped one is soooooo sweet. Well, all three are, but that one is just sooooooo incredibly fine.

I have #4 coming to me. I can't wait to get it. Go to www.guitarx.com for info on buying one. Gary has been awesome with me so far. AHHHH! The bass can't get here fast enough...

We've started using Glockenklang pre-amps. The active/passive switch is on the volume. Walnut necks are significantly lighter than maple & bubinga. So if anything, balance is even better. With the addition of HD carbon fiber, they are equally as stiff. The tone is more open, airy and acoustic-like.

These are just sick! I've been telling myself my next Dingwall is going to be a Z, but after talking to Gary @ GuitarX and seeing this first run of ABII's, I'm starting to have second thoughts...... Sheldon, how do these balance with the walnut neck?

Cool, are those all walnut necked? Are the new ABII's not equipped with an active/passive switch?
