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 :)

This baby is now back in Canada. Picked it up from Bass Northwest this weekend. It is my 1st Dingwall and it is truly stunning. Won't be my last. Later Rob [quote="Sheldon Dingwall":3cpu0qlq]Here's one that's on it's way to Bass Northwest. We're starting to dial in the Tiger eye burst finish to where it's becoming a shop favorite.[/quote:3cpu0qlq]

Hello. First I would like to thank Sheldon and everyone who had a part in making the Walnut Burl AB II. The bass is amazing. Fit, Finish, Set-up. Attention to detail is where the Dingwall crew definitely excels. Second, the sound of the all walnut bass. It fits your mood. If you want mellow, the booty of motown or to rock out. The sound is there because the bass is so responsive. I have to agree with Funkshwey when he said the walnut gives a very clear open even tone. There is such a depth to the tone that it almost has an acoustic quality. Thanks, I'm going to play.

[quote="Funkshwey":138nqs2z]The burl walnut is top shelf. You guys that are fixing to receive the all walnut Dingwall's are going to have some of the best tonal offerings to come out of Sheldon's shop. The all walnut basses are my personal favorite. All walnut gives a very clear open even tone and adds to the overall firmness/taughtness of the bass IMHO. It's very cool that Sheldon's doing more all walnut basses and is not helping to relieve my DAS. 8)[/quote:138nqs2z] Yes, the burl walnut is a beauty. The comments on tone are making me even more anxious... Hope that truck gets here soon!

[quote="RalphL":1cw4xcs6]My comment was tongue in cheek; I have a feeling I'll be playing this baby so much that I'll have to sell my others just to get more. Been designing a Prima already. I feel the DAS starting.... r[/quote:1cw4xcs6] I'm with ya there!

I agree with this. I think I have the first all walnut ABII (Burl walnut top). I have a 4 string ABII with a bubinga neck and I have the walnut neck one, and I do prefer the walnut neck, its amazing. I am happy to see the walnut neck becoming so popular, even making it onto the SJs. It was nice to have a one of a kind for awhile, but I am glad others can share in the walnut.

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":1miqpxci]This one's staying relatively local. Walnut burl top, flame maple contrast layer.[/quote:1miqpxci] That might be the best AB I've ever seen. Is the headstock signed? Also, the D on the headstock is not that clear.. You might have signed with a thick black pen, and made the D look like it's made of black granite.. But that would be too much :D

I can only say that I cannot blame myself for wanting a Dingwall or two (maybe not so few :wink: :wink: :wink: )

[quote="RalphL":1hq0epwd]Thanks, Evolver! All 3 are killer IMHO. Your burl is jaw dropping! The quilt on the maple basses is as good as it gets! I have all sorts of woods on my basses, Modulus, Alembic, Acacia, Volbreht, Stambaugh, Roscoe, among others, but the Dingwall is its own animal. The lines of these SE, especially with the "closed" F hole, are stunning on all 3 basses. It is like they are moving fast just standing still. Hard to describe. I'm kinda hoping I don't like playing the bass because if I do, I have so much selling to do before I can get more Dingwalls. Life is a series of critical difficulties. Rock on everybody! Russ[/quote:1hq0epwd] Thanks Russ! Sounds like you have some nice bases to sell/trade so that's always a good thing! I'm thinking the opposite - I'm hoping I love this bass so I can focus on it and maybe a future Dingwall. I've spent too much time and money trying to find the "right" one and I hope the quest is over!
