Per the bass specs page, the AB II standard top is Bubinga. Is that currently the only choice? Is picture #3 in the AB II gallery an example of this top, or can you send a link to a picture if not? The reason I ask is based on a conversation with my dealer the upgrade to the exotics is a significant jump in price, though they do look great. It sounds like the upgrade price is fixed, and not determined by the type of wood. Is the AB I standard top just finished Alder? The spec page says N/A.

The specs also has a "Top Options" line. I think it's for additional price.

Exactly my point... I'm wondering what the standard bass looks like without spending the extra money on an exotic top. As a suggestion for the specs page, it would be great to have the standard and top options linked to pictures of what they look like. I know the finish will make a big difference, but an example of, say, the wood type in natural finish, would be helpful.

The ABII standard top wood is Bubinga as mentioned, the jump to our X-Top package can appear to be a significant jump in price but includes our best tops plus a contrasting laminate of another exotic wood. Yes photos 3 & 4 on our ABII gallery are of the standard Bubinga top. Interesting fact, 90% of all ABII basses that we build are built with the X-Top option due to customer and dealer demands. The standard ABI top is AAAAA Flamed Maple. Hope this answers all your questions

Thanks Dingwall Sales, that does answer my questions. The more I process the options, the more I am with the 90%. Either that or go with an AB I (or Ia). Thanks again.
