What's going on? Nobody is selling or buying Dingwalls anymore? Who wants to buy my ABI 4-banger, or take it in trade against a Super J? SOLD

Sorry GLF, I'm looking for a 6. I like 4's but I prefer that B and having a higher string is something I've been wanting for a while. A 4 just won't do it for me, but I don't know about everyone else.

The things is, Sir and this is a hard fact of life, when you advertise something for sale on a forum there is no garantee that the item will sell. Same as when you put something for sale on ebay / gumtree / craiglist. I am a member of quite a few forums and recently most of them are applying a policy where "bump"-ing is no longer tolerated. You are lucky that you can still do that here. I wish you good luck in selling your bass.

Hi all, I have played my amberburst AB4 literally only about an hour in total. It started to hurt my wrist because of the slightly longer scale length. It probably wouldn't affect you at all. For reference, I can't even play a regular Fender J-bass because I am prone to tendinitis. It is a couple of years old, but it has sat in the hardshell case the whole time. Talk about a closet classic! Pristine finish, BlueQube switch, passive, wenge fretboard. What more do you need to know? I haven't sold it because I like to show it to my musician friends sometimes. (No, I don't let them even touch it!) I'm waiting for a fair deal. I've been hoping for $1600 plus shipping, or partial trade towards a Super J4. (I am hoping that the slightly shorter scale of the Super J as compared to the AB will lower the strain on my wrist.) If you wish to make an offer, please PM me. GLF

Is it hurting your wrist when sitting, standing or both?

Hi Sheldon! Thanks for the message. Playing my AB4 hurts me either sitting or standing. I can play a P-bass all day without even a twinge, but a J-bass bothers my wrist, I think because of its neck heaviness. (I know that the Super J has fixed this issue!) I was so excited to get my AB, but when I played it, going for frets 1 and 2 bothered my wrist. I think the two contributing factors were the slightly longer scale length, and the fact that the fanning means that I have to twist my wrist out a little. I am hoping that I will be able to play a Super J, but I'm a little shy to take the plunge, not knowing whether my wrist will be able to take it. I think that I posted two years ago here on this forum asking if there were any Super J owners within a two hour drive of Toronto, Canada who wouldn't let me mind trying theirs, but I didn't get any hits. Maybe I should try again? I love the look and sound of your instruments; I just need to find one that fits my body. G&L basses are [b:300begcc]way[/b:300begcc] too heavy, and their necks feel clunky compared to your Dingwalls. I feel like I'm stuck driving a Country Squire station wagon (complete with faux wood panelling) when everybody else on here is zipping around in luxurious sports cars. GLF

I'm sure we've sold some SJ4's into the TO area but it's been a while. Would you mind trying the bass on a strap and moving it to the right until the pain goes away (if at all). If you can find a comfortable position, how much did you have to move the bass?

One of the major differences I noticed when I bought my SuperJ 5 after playing the Afterburners for a while is that it's like the positions have moved up a couple of frets. So, it feels two frets shorter in comparison.

Everybody else is ferociously buying though!!!! In all seriousness, good luck with the sale! For whatever reason, fivers seem to be the most popular DW snatched up, I've noted that four and six stringers take a little longer to find a new home.

My SJ is fatigue-free, the most effortless playing "traditional" sized bass I own. Throw some flats on and it's even better. Hope you find your SJ. Mark
