Mark, can't wait to see yours.[/quote:1y3m7w5l]


Me either. :twisted: I've discovered what Fullrange knows better that all of us - the jones for delivery of subsequent Dingwalls is just as bad as with the first one! :o

That ain't good news... making a choice for the first one is already overwhelming... :)

It's been a while since this thread had an update. Here's a quick shot of the group in assembly.

:shock: Wow, they look like candy. Amazing finishes all, Sheldon. Thanks for the update.

Looks like the 12th may be pushing it for delivery, but...

:D It's beautiful, Sheldon. Thanks for the glamour shots. I know you are very busy, and I appreciate you taking the time to get some pix before you shipped it. Now my task is to try to get it here by the 12th! Happy birthday to me, indeed. Thanks also go out to my beautiful wife. After all, this bass was her idea, and she pushed me toward the 3 tone finish. Thanks, sweetheart! Many thanks also go to forum member [b:1lnl0tkt]Lomo[/b:1lnl0tkt], who offered me his queue in the Z bass production schedule. That allowed me to go from a Z2, then to a Z3 in record time- only about 5 months wait. :) Thanks again, Morris.

This one turned out really nice too. This is the first time we've used birdseye maple for a fingerboard. It doesn't photograph well, but it really pops in person.

Wow, very nice, Sheldon. I don't know how I ever decide on a finish for my Dingwalls - they are all so beautiful.

Yeah, too much contrast with the black background. Did you try photoshopping the neck (reduce levels etc.)? You can make out a bit of the birdseye on the headstock shot. Very nice Sheldon! I love the black D inlay in the middle.

Brim, that's over my head. My photoshop skills are pretty pedestrian :oops:

And the Fullrange machine.

As a continuation of the "Bound" headstock D from Xrobs. I thought a black bound pearl logo would pop a little better on the natural quilt. It's way subtle, but the D @ th 12th is also bound.

Fully talked us into a custom switching system with 62 tones. This will remain a one-off for now.

What an honor to post after Master Sheldon has posted the pics of my Z3!!! Apart from the body I had not seen it till now!!! Wow :shock: :shock: :shock: . Looks fantastic. I'm speechless.

First of all, I would like to thank Sheldon for taking the time and putting the effort to materialize such a masterpiece (more on that later).

Second I would like to thank the Canadian dealer for the long standing order, great service and perfect arrangements so my brother could receive the bass on his trip to Canada at the time specified (it helps a lot when you know the schedules of all people involved, several months to years ahead). Proud to be Canadian!!!

The quilt on the headstock looks so 3D :shock: . Looks as the FRB is surfing on the crest of the waves of the quilt over a deep quilt maple.

As far as the switching goes, I've proposed that it will remain a secret, until Sheldon decides. The only thing I can tell you is that Sheldon has suffered major headaches with my ideas and they only were intensified when he started putting ideas into reality.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

That black binding looks fantastic and the quilt is beautiful. Congratulations, Sheldon, on another masterpiece and to fullrange on picking up his 19th?, 20th? Dingwall. And what great addition to the family!
