I just finished watching the South Park episode about the 9/11 conspiracy theory. It made me realize something. I've put together some facts about Fullrange that reveal a deeper truth: FULLRANGEBASS IS NOT A REAL PERSON. There is no way. Sheldon fabricated this lie to make us all jealous and want to buy more Dingwalls. 1. No "bass player" could fund Fullrange's crazy Dingwall acquisition. He seems to have so many gigs, it's almost as if he has no day job. The gigs are so diverse, it's obvious Sheldon created him to show how versatile a DW is. 2. One person could never find enough time to love 15 Dingwalls. Mine gets a minimum 1 hour per day. 3. He is single. Sheldon wants us all to feel fine when our significant others leave. It's not our addiction to Dingwalls causing problems - they just could never understand. 4. Nobody's "brother" just gives them a Prima Artist!!! 5. He isn't an a--hole like everybody who really has nearly 50 boutique basses AND money to keep getting new ones. 6. FRB can be heard saying things like, "I hardly ever play my parallel fretted basses anymore. They just don't compare." Well no crap they don't! Nobody that has that many Dingwalls would have anything else, unless Sheldon created him to talk about how his DW's compare to the other high-end stuff. 7. No human being could possibly be that happy! Feel free to add to the list.

I am not saying that the "mystery" person has to post here necessarily, but he is somehow related.... And I have to admit that it's one of Sheldon's pieces of functional art

You are spot on!!! Indeed it is Leland Sklar. For one thing I hope to meet him in Frankfurt. The story will unfold soon.... We need to make a plot as to what arrangements are taking place for my gift. I will start the scenario from the next post

Santa has confirmed that he has read my letter few posts back He needed to check if I was a good boy (affirmative) and if the Dingwall museum was in perfect order (yes, all are in order). Now he has been working on what can be fit for FRB. He started asking around to see if any special toy was available. Everyone from Shinning Star Sheldon to lookalike Santa Leland Sklar. There is something coming from that direction....

Well to give you all a hint as to what I'm about to receive, I'll post a double question and the answer will direct us all to the right direction. The question is: (A) What type (brand) of pickups do my Dingwalls, so far, sport? (not model, but brand) (B) What is one brand that is world known, many years in the pickup industry but absent from my Dingwall herd?

Nordstrand? EMGs? Seymour Duncan?

The right answer lies between EMGs or SDs. Has anyone spotted any Dingwall with either EMGs or Seymour Duncans? (I have seen a Dingwall with the one brand but not the other). I assume that most Ding-aholics keep a folder with Dingwall pics (I have to admit that I have such a folder)

The bass had EMGs from moment zero, but I don't mind buying a used Dingwqall :wink: . I know that I will be able to compare all these great pickups side by side on the world's best basses!!! I am sure that some Dingaholics must have heard of this bass (or the previous owner). It's not the Apple Red Z2.... Unless someone figures out the bass, I will reveal tomorrow night... I have been a very good boy indeed :wink: :wink: :wink:

Is it Lee's "baby puke" green Z bass? Mark

It's not the Green one either. It's quite a humble bass (just like Leland is, from what I've heard so far) but it carries a bit of history too. Tomorrow I will reveal (along with an Xmas story for Ding-aholics)

More humble than this? I think Ed Roman had this bass for sale recently. Mark

Congratulations!!! You have spotted well. It's the autographed one (the other I have to nick it out of the shop when I visit the shop, but please be quiet about it :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: ) Tomorrow I will reveal the story!!! My favorite bassists are Billy Sheehan (I own a Yamaha Attitude custom but not one that he used), Randy Coven (I have one of his 3 Foderas ever made), Mike Porcaro (I own one of his Status Empathies) and Leland Sklar (I am humbled by the opportunity to own a bass that belonged to him)

I guessed Lee first, then I guessed the mystery bass first. So, don't you think [b:yuric2mm][i:yuric2mm]I[/i:yuric2mm][/b:yuric2mm] deserve a Christmas present for doing such high quality detective work? :) No, I'm not thinking I necessarily deserve a bass, but a Dingwall T-shirt in large would do nicely. PM me for my shipping address :D And about that blue Voodoo rotting in back of the shop- I've already hit Sheldon up a while back about putting together a [i:yuric2mm][b:yuric2mm][color=darkred:yuric2mm]Frankenwall[/color:yuric2mm][/b:yuric2mm][/i:yuric2mm] bass for me from unloved and unused [i:yuric2mm]spare parts[/i:yuric2mm], so you may have some competition there. :P I've also asked for permission to travel to the shop to do the final assembly and set up on the Frankenwall. The race is on! (You will probably win, however, given your expertise in Dingwall acquisition. :wink: ) Remember, I need a large T-shirt, not XL. I've been working out and losing weight so that I can strap on 2 of my Dingwalls at once, like Mr. Levin does with his MM and Stick! Congrats on your "new" bass. Looking forward to the story. Keep this up and I'll have to surrender my GUITARDED handle to you and adopt another! (But please let me keep the name for my band - I'm booked too far in to '08 to change it :) ) Merry Christmas.
