Sheldon, could you give us the final specs (string spacing etc.) and the list of available colors/pickguards? Also, the final word on the price?

Thanks.

Any word if CL Green is going to be an option? I have a birthday in April and must decide on a color soon. :)

Great job on the colour/combo options! A lot of diversity and a little something for everybody. What a clean roll-out!

I understand this was a rush job. But has anyone read the copy on the 'Combustion page
------------
100% Dingwall tone @ 1/fraction of the price
Dingwall made in Canada FD3-A pickups
EMG USA BT07 2-band pre-amp
Dingwall USA strings
Select hardware
Manufactured in China
Final setup at Dingwall Shop

NOW AVAILABLE - OWE IT
---------

errr... owe it, you mean like you owe it money?

i think he mean " OWN IT"-- maybe even better-- OWN IT TODAY


Also 1/fraction - is that a real fraction?

Not trying to be nitpicky- just helpful.
BTW I will be inline for one of these, after I get my magical mysterious bass come tax time--- i hope, and the sounds clips sound fantastic

Sorry --
I'll gladly delete this thread

SPYDER--
Sheldon has address both of those questions, in various comments here and over at talkbass

The street price is supposedly under $1200.00 USD for a 5 string (no talk on 4 bangers yet) and NO on the maple fretboards

1/fraction = Canadian fraction

Owe it = If you can't afford it just finance it

Frank are you getting the magical one of a kind Dingwall by April? Looking forward to checking it out.

Wasn't it 2 or 3 years ago that you could get an all Canadian ABI-5 for $1350?

Yeah, it sounds like there's a big difference between these new pickups and FDs. tThe clips sound like my Jazz bass with old, really hot DiMarzios.

No, my ABI-5 was nearly $1800 in late '05 without any of the extra options I specified. That's with a fancy top. I guess it would have been a couple of hundy less w/o the top.

That was about right for a used one. I bought my AB-1 5 in 2005 and it was right around 1700 at that time, and I did plenty of bargain shopping to find that price.

I don't think he said no on maple fretboards, he said 'we don't know what the future will bring' and that was both about maple and 6 strings.
