So Cool Mark- retro- old school Dingwall. A wonderful homage to Sheldon's older black faced Zebra basses. Great idea--- so how did you get the "D" sticker back on?

It worked better than I imagined it would. Mark

Beautiful work guitarded. I guess there were no issues with the new hardware bolting right on? The headstock looks amazing. I guess I'll grab a couple of scalpels from work and try to emulate your workmanship. The black just works incredibly well. Stunning effect. Great job.

[quote="guitarded":2ajt0952]Pimp. Mark[/quote:2ajt0952] Beautiful work, Mark! How about adding some custom DW rubber knobs to top off the hi-end look? :)

I tried to get Sheldon to finish the headstock, but he denied my request. I think it's just what the C bass needs. Anyway, it's how I envisioned mine. Maybe this feature will become standard/optional at some point. Indeed, the hardware bolted right on, no issues. I'll be happy to provide links to the ebay sellers I used. Mark

Mark[/quote:2mjx6s9a] I would appreciate that. It would eliminate a couple of uncertainties for me. You can post them or PM, whatever is easier. I hope to get my Combustion in a week or two. Again, stellar work and the results are exceptional.

This will hopefully make it easier for those about to pimp their C bass.

Just put in my order for THIS: :D :D :D [img:34r5gbnm]http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/9013/combustionblondemba113v.jpg[/img:34r5gbnm] I was planning on getting a rosewood fretboard, but in the end the maple won me over. It just looks [u:34r5gbnm]so[/u:34r5gbnm] killer with the blonde body. I will post plenty of pics upon her arrival, fellow Dingwallians.

Attention CAG owners. After some searching, my wife and teenage daughter have discovered [b:3q7enqm1]Sally Hansen Hi-Def Frost nail color [/b:3q7enqm1]at Walgreens, a near-perfect match for our candy green basses. It looks like it will be a perfect match for touch-up or pimping. Hi-Definition is the line of polish, Hi-Def Frost is the name of the color. Mark

The maple is so right with that color, but I might have ordered a pearl-white guard, or none at all. Anyway, it's killer. Congrats, Jj. Mark
