[quote="spacer":2bvufucv]So here is the $64,000 question: Will there/ is there a retrofit option for us existing Z3 owners to convert to the new system? If so, what is the approx turn around time?[/quote:2bvufucv] No, this would be for new builds or a complete new model only.

Is the blade switch option also available on a Z3 6 string with FD3 pickups? If so how are the strings divided between the switches?

We can make it available in a Z3 6. The split would be 3 and 3.

perhaps a future 6 position blade, and combining of Series/parallel settings on existing Z3's might be considered possible? if it was you would certainly have the most comprehensive choice of sounds, keeping both the Neck/Bridge combination as well as the many sound combo's from the existing Z3 set up... although first time users might find it to be too much, the tonal options /flexibility of Dingwall basses has always been a cornerstone of their appeal (amongst the fantastic build, innovation, amazing finishing, and overall quality...) . Sheldon if you ever decide to try a retro fit, (risk of damage to finish?) I am a willing Experiment waiting to happen with my Z3, it would be a great test bass given the unique body wood combo of Swamp ash bass and Alder Treble side...

Since the blade switch system and the series/parallel switches are mutually exclusive, I would be interested to hear feedback from existing Z3 owners whether losing the series/parallel switches would be worth the trade-off. I do not have a Z3 available to compare the different sounds from the series/parallel switches. In my case I mainly play finger-style with the occasional chord, so the series/parallel switches might be more useful.

i do love the options on exising Z3's - but the mix of bass and treble side strings on different pick ups is a wild concept, and really seems like a way to get the most of the bass i have heard in many cases - when using Basses like Dingwall Especially (due to the very clear and accurate articulation of the wood via pick ups) when used with ultra clear amps- you can actually hear subtle differences from the bass and treble sides of the instrument's wood body. the ability to match all strings in same pick ups (as todays- and the new blades do) and to mix (as only the blades can) sounds like a spectacular advancement!!! BUT adding 1 more position to the blade to allow NOT losing the Bridge-Neck combo's would really make for ultimate flexability etc... too bad you can't have the parallel - series options too

I'd probably miss the "MM" setting with bridge and middle pickups in series. Very cool idea though, could be expanded with a stereo output to route only certain strings through effects (like I believe Aram Bedrosian does with his Ritters)
