So Sheldon, does this mean guitars are a regular part of your lineup, or will be soon? Are you making your own PU's for these guitars, or will you purchase them? Any plans on other types of guitars any time soon? I'm pretty happy for you. It must be nice for a guitarist to finally produce some guitars. Kudos. :)

We're not known in the guitar world so we'll be starting out slowly. Direct, semi-custom sales for the first year to fine tune the options.

It would be cool to see a Dingwall fanned-fret 7-string guitar...

Seeing the G1 & G2 brought a big, fat smile to my face. Nice work Sheldon! Do I spy a Skyway and Fralin split blades on that G2 :D ? What's the pickup switching scheme on the G2?

What's the pickup switching scheme on the G2?[/quote:331i8lky] Hey Kevin, Good to hear from you. You're 2 for 2 on those observations. The switching system provides 11 tones with two switches. It sounds complicated but it's pretty intuitive. toggle down = 5-way all positions are the same as strat except the middle position which is the outside pair for a tele tone. toggle up = lead pickup soloed this is a hot version of the split blades. If you just want to run it like that, then you have a pre-set cut to lead in addition to your classic strat and tele tones. toggle middle = lead pickup in series with the 5-way. this give 5 subtle variations of humbucker from a warm neck position to a medium-high output bridge position. These tones have the fatness of a humbucker but with more clarity. With the tone rolled down there are some really smooth but clear jazz tones available.

I didn't have a chance to join Bryn and come down to the booth, but I did take in Charlie Hunter at Place Des Arts on the final Sunday of Jazzfest. Great show, but brief at 1 hour. Looks tough wrasslin' that 7-string, fanned fret guitar. Interestingly (and with great reults) his axe has separate outs for the bass and treble strings. The former fed an SWR head (not sure which) and Golight 410 and the latter a Fender combo (likely a Twin). He's a 1 man band with that setup and played some thoroughly enjoyable arrangements. I dug Ahmad Jamal's quartet a lot more though :-)

Sorry to have missed you Morris. I didn't get a chance to see Charlie play, but I had a nice chat with him one morning. What a great guy. Monte Montgomery was the only real show I caught and I was blown away.

Well, Mr D., if you only had time to catch 1 out of over 500 shows (including over 100 free) that can only mean 2 things..... 1)you worked too hard and 2)you need to come on back again :-)))

Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I had a great visit with Sheldon and Dingwall Sales at the Montreal Guitar Show, spending most of the show time I had with them in fact. The G1 blew me away. This was the first time in my 44 years of playing that I did not have to spend any time getting used to a guitar before being comfortable with it. From the time I picked it up, it was like I had been playing this instrument for 40 years. I have never owned a Bigsby or any other vibrato equipped guitar, yet Sheldon's implementation on the G1 was intuitive and perfection. Again as though I had always played one. So as of early August, the anticipation toward my new G1's delivery date has been building. Fantastic guitar. I sure hope Sheldon and Dingwall Sales come back to see us in Montreal soon, perhaps the 2011 Guitar Show?

Tell us about the guitar you've got on the way...how about a rundown of the specs?[/quote:1dzw8gvz] It will be virtually identical to the Montreal G1 prototype, including the Bigsby and the TV Jones pick-ups, the neck carve, but in a finish similar to a vintage Rickenbacker Fireglo. Master tone and master volume. Nothing too exotic, other than the fact it is a Dingwall G1. This will be the first non-Rick guitar purchase for me this millenium. I have 4 Rickenbackers (as well as a couple of Godins and a '69 Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop), and while I do love them and will continue to play them all, the G1 is in a class of instrument all on it's own, and I look forward to it's extensive use for gigs. I would say the G1 is to guitars what Sheldon's basses are to basses. I have a couple of months yet to go before it is ready, so pics will have to wait. :)
