I'm looking at a Super J and it is a 2006 model with the battery still tucked up under the pickguard. How much trouble is it changing the battery? And in your opinions, is looking for a newer J with the battery cover on the back suggested? Thanks....

It's not too bad taking the pickguard off. The screws have threaded inserts, so you have no worries of destroying the screw holes. You shouldn't have to change the battery terribly often - I think that the batteries aren't even engaged unless you're in active mode. Can anybody confirm this?

The batteries run the active/passive treble circuit so even in passive the batteries are being used.

i'm getting geared up to order a super j through act 1 music in langley... so a couple more questions... i remember seeing a 'tool' on the Dingwall site where you could pick your options and it would change the colours, pickguard choices for you so you could see what your bass would look like. is this interactive program still available or has it been taken down? anything you super j owners would suggest is a 'must have' on a super j? so far i'm leaning towards the "p/j" configuration and baltic amber is my fave p/g. thanks... :-)

bassman- the color choice tool is still up. Its under the products section, SuperJ bass.(i know you could do this just as easy-http://www.dingwallguitars.com/html/products_superj_tn_gallery.html) As for must have....a SuperJ has pretty much everything, you choose the fingerboard wood and bass color,(esp since you want a P/J). I got a "D"-tuner on mine, and the rest is pretty much standard. (fretless is an option too) These are the best decision to have in life

I would consider the matching headstock option. I'd have chosen it on my black SJ PJ p'ups if it were available at the time. Battery in the back is so much easier than under pg. I sometimes change the pg (between black and white, I cannot choose, sorry :oops: ) and it's quite some work, but of course it will not kill you... Anyway, playing the thing will not change and will be a delight! bye

Hi Sheldon, Is it possible to get a standard Super J 5 without a pick guard? Say if I just wanted something like a basic candy apple red? Thanks again. Scott

Yes it's called an SJ Custom. The price is the same as the standard.

Hi Sheldon, I've seen a few pictures of the Super J where the input jack is top mounted next to the controls, still most I see are not this way. I am thinking about ordering a passive Super J 5 soon, but would not want the top mounted input jack......if this is the case wtih the passive models, I guess I would just order the active. Thanks again, Scott

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":36o5chng]We don't offer the passive option with a side mount jack.[/quote:36o5chng] Hi Sheldon, I have an SJ4 exotic on order.(Winnipeg) I was told this is active/passive. I`think it has a side mount also. Am I wrong Thanks

If I understood it correctly: Passive only = top mount jack Active/Passive = side mount jack
