Hey Dingwall Sales, I've got your price list and I wanted to ask... there is a price for an FD-3 set with BluEQube... Does it also include the 4-way selector? How much does the selector cost if bought seperately? How much does the bluEQube cost seperately? thanks

Hi Dragonlord, The FD-3 set does not include the rotary switch, the rotary switch is $20.00 and the bluEQube bought seperately is $75.00. Also I understand you need a price for a set of wrenches, they are $10.00. Dingwall Sales

Thanks! A few more questions: 1) I have barts in it now, which have the screws in the middle of the top and bottom side... to put FD-3s in there I would need to make new holes in the bass, which I'm not thrilled about. Could I get a pair of FDs with the holes in the middle? 2) Can I order a pair of FD-3s with a pau ferro instead of a plastic cover? How much would that cost? 3) Should I order these straight from you or through my dealer of choice? 4) And a last one: this took place in another topic, I guess Sheldon missed that post, but you're probably the right person to ask anyway: [quote="Dragonlord":3eu51rf8][quote="Sheldon Dingwall":3eu51rf8]The new saddles are compatible with the older Kahler plates with the removal of some pins. The difference in tone is Kahlers have more of a fretless tone, Dingwall's are more clear and bell-like with slightly more volume and sustain. The saddles are $25.00 each.[/quote:3eu51rf8] Cool, sounds like it's time for an upgrade. So, you would suggest getting only the saddles and not the whole bridge, right? Can I order some saddles that would be compatible with my Kahler plate from you straight or through my dealer, or do I have to remove the pins you mention by myself?[/quote:3eu51rf8] thanks

Hi Dragonlord, Due to the difference of the Barts compared to the FD-3 you will need a professional installation. We can supply Pau Ferro caps for the pickups for $120.00. You can order them direct from me. Sheldon's response re the bridge: "The new saddles are compatible with the older Kahler plates with the removal of some pins. The difference in tone is Kahlers have more of a fretless tone, Dingwall's are more clear and bell-like with slightly more volume and sustain. The saddles are $25.00 each." So you can order just the saddles as they are compatible with the Kahler plate, I suggest that you have this done professionally at the same time as having the FD-3s installed. The pins will be easily removed when the saddle installation is done. Dingwall Sales Lamb

[quote="Dingwall Sales Lamb":3aryjjzi]We can supply Pau Ferro caps for the pickups for $120.00. You can order them direct from me.[/quote:3aryjjzi] Well, I was hoping I could order a set that would be moulded straight into the wood instead of being made in plastic and then add wood on top of that... reason is that it would bring the pickups closer to the strings. I believe that this is how you do it with Prima Artists, so I was hoping to have an FD-3 set made the same way if the price won't be too harsh.

What is their thickness on the top side (the one under the strings)? And are the corners as curved as the plastic corners of normal FD-3s or are they more edgy? Thanks a lot!

Hi Dragonlord, My apologies, I had written you a reply and for a reason which I can't explain never posted. Maybe I previewed it and forgot to submit. I do not answer questions by not responding. Our wooden shells for the pickup are the only casing for the pickup, we do not cover a plastic shell with wood. The attached photo shows you the shape of the outline of the pickup. I am not aware of the thickness of the top of the veneer but obviously Sheldon will have thought the design through to the best possible outcome. Let me know if you still want this info andf I'll contact Sheldon tomorrow for the measurement. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. I would recommend that you contact me through email at blamb53@shaw.ca for answers to your questions as it is a better medium for your personal concerns. Dingwall Sales

Dingwall Sales, no worries, I know you're a busy man! Cool, I thought that FD-3s didn't have removable plastic covers... thought that the pickup was moulded into plastic and that's it. Cool, I'll probably take a pair then, not sure when exactly, I'll contact you via email. Guitarded, how long is it taking? They look awesome!

One more question: when you say that the caps are $120, do you mean for the pair or each?

[quote="Dragonlord":1jxr3x1e]Guitarded, how long is it taking? They look awesome![/quote:1jxr3x1e] Too long :cry: . Sheldon had them finished, but then I sent my Voodoo to him for further pimping out. The color didn't match, so he is refinishing them. Be prepared to wait 2-3 months, I would guess. Mark
