Sheldon, Any plans to have a simple super J (passive) built overseas. I'd love to add a Dingwall 4 string super J, but won't be able to afford the hand built one. Thanks, Mitch (loyal Dingwall only bass player; Tampa, Fla) (2) AB1's

Hey Brim, I see that you post quite a bit on this forum. You must have the inside scoop on a lot of this stuff. What is your take on a super j import? I know that Sheldon is launching an AB type import. How are things in Sarasota?? mitch ps. What is your take on the super J??

Hi Mitch, we won't be making any plans until we get the Combustion up and running smoothly. Once that happens we'll start adding to the line.

Sarasota is great, except for the lack of jobs. :) I have [i:rhprtu39]yet[/i:rhprtu39] to try a SuperJ. The only Dingwall I've played is my ABII-5.

PS (off topic) Brim, what I've send you are the ones in my relevant folder. I need to check the total archive to see if I've got anything more to send you. Thank you for your patience

I just hope my wife won't mind a 3 day stop at Dingwall-Mania b/c it will take me at least that long to absorb your fine collection. Thanks for the pics btw - we still need to get that archive going.

Import stuff often looks the same but never feels the same as hand made. Of course money is an issue not to knock around lightly... But the paragraph on the splash Dingwall web site says it all. These instruments actually are cherished by virtually everyone who owns them. They are hand built works of functional art in every way. IMHO they are one of the few kinds of custom built anything that are actually worth the money. It's no novelty or gimmick. If there was one thing you'd save the $$ to get (as a bass player) that would last a lifetime (or more) it would be a DW bass... :wink:

Most first basses are cheap, at least mine was. I wouldn't have given $2000 to try playing bass. So, no import bass - no DW several years later :) Also, if you want to fool around with a fretless, or a 6 string for tapping when you play 4 strings, an import is the way.

[quote="Willem":3chz67sd]FRB: where in Europe do you live?[/quote:3chz67sd] You'll find him at the corner of GAS Ave. and Jones Blvd. Look for the black hole vortex where Dingwalls are being sucked in at an alarming rate. Mark
