I remember the builder of these basses joking on TalkBass about the idea of building one with fanned frets... I was thinking of these basses before I discovered Dingwalls. I can see how it works and how comfortable it could be, but I like to have visual contact with every fret (and I don't think you can see the first frets that well) and I'm not sure there won't be any setup issues in the long run. Anyway, my Warwick was a far reach to the first frets - since I caught Dingwallitis from fullrangebass, I never considered those twisted necks again.

yeah thats my problem too. i'd take fanned frets over a twisted neck, partially because i know its good (no, GOOD), but mostly because i think it makes more (or more important) difference. dont care much about visuals, but maitenance is more of a concern.

however, even tho it would probably be a long time before i could afford something like that, the thought of a twisted dingy gives me the butterflies

Yeah, well the one affects comfort and the other one sound and feel... Fanned frets are far more important than the twisted neck IMO, no comparison.

Seems to me you could have both fanned frets and a twisted neck. Especially on a 5 and/or 6 string, it would be a bit more comfortable to have the twist. I do like to see where I'm going, however, so that might be the problem for me. I guess then the neck would have to be see-through, too.
