We've got a nice run of Z's going at the moment. Another one to start soon.

Some of you may recognize these bodies already.

Sheldon,

What are the circular depressions on the bottom of the pickup routes? Just curious.

It is amazing that you can describe to Sheldon what you want, and then he just nails it!

We've recently added pickup cavity shielding to all models, the drilled pocket provides a place for the connector lug to go.

You never rest on your laurels :!: :!: :!:

Sheldon, you never cease to amaze me (even after all the Dingwalls I own). The older ones are not inferior in any way but every step you take it's a great step forward and an improvement. Congratulations once again

Hi Sheldon,

Does the connector lug allow for unplugging and then replacing a pickup without getting into the electronics bay and resoldering?

Yeah! Give us the Voodoo complete with the "Burning Sky Burst" high-gloss finish! I am suspecting the green/teal is just the warm-up when it comes to crazy new styles..

It will be coming soon enough...I'm sure that once its ready, you'll see pics! Due to working on some other aspects of this instrument, there's been tiny bit of delay...but soon enough! :D

I know that you'll all be tired of looking at it before too long...(Yes, I plan on taking detailed high res pics once it's in my hands too! I'm saving some 'personal days' from work so when it's ready I can have some quality time with it!

And for the record, my girlfriend is already starting to get a bit jealous. Luckily, she's a very understanding woman, as you might imagine she'd have to be to hang out with me. :wink:

Just plain amazing, the fusion of art, craft, and technology just sets DW basses miles ahead of anything else, Sheldon deserves all the credit and praise he gets. Looking forward to the next run of SJs (hopefully mine will be one of them :wink: )

Hi John H. The pickups are still soldered inside the control cavity. The pocket in the pickup cavity is for a ring lug that connects the pickup cavity to ground.

Sheldon,

I understand from Jong at Jive Sound that my bass has been completed (or at least is pretty close to completed).

Did you happen to take any glamor photos? I hope so, because your photos always look so much better than anything I take. Thanks.

I'll be sure to take some before it leaves. It's looking killer!

Here's one called Toscha's Lotus Flower. This one's been a LONG time coming, but it's exceeded all expectations.

The top is spalted maple burl from the same board as Patrick's. Originally we were going to do a linear burst in magentas and violets, but the customer had a change of heart on those colors. The diagonal burst seemed to make more sense as it follows the natural grain changes in the wood. The re-burst on the edges idea came while longboarding at the new skatepark in Prince Albert SK.

While I'm sure the Violet and Magenta would have been beautiful, I think the green/teal combo with the lotus works perfectly. It's really another stunner.

This current batch of Z's has some really beautiful and unique instruments happening. Its been very fun to watch them all develop and take wing. Each one is very individual and special in their own way.
