New processes and quality checks implemented in the current run of NG-2 and Combustion basses have caused production to take longer than expected while the factory does some minor re-tooling and adopts the new processes. 35 basses will be shipping this week. We will be receiving them in mid August and will go through quality check and setup as quickly as we can. The basses will be shipped in the order that the orders were received. We will be processing approximately 2 per day. The remainder of this shipment will arrive mid to late September and again will be processed at approximately 2 per day. The second run is expected to arrive in late October. We will be processing those at approximately 2 per day. This is a big run so will take a couple of months to get everything out. We will be contacting customers as soon as we receive the shipment and do an initial quality inspection. We will contact them again once we've fully inspected and set up their bass and are able to ship. Sorry for the delay in getting these out. The increased quality will be worth it though.

Hello EMoneySC2, and welcome to the forum! I went from an old Ibanez to a MTD Kingston, which kinda blew my mind (the MTD was an awesome bass, directly competing with the Combustion, at least in price point). Then I went to a Combustion expecting to be blown away and I was! The tone was crazy, and there were so many useful settings, contrasted with my other basses that I had to fight with to get a usable tone. Then and there I decided Dingwall was the only way to go. I now play an ABII 6er and I LOVE it! Take the plunge, it's worth it! (sorry for the derail) Why wasn't that Black burst available in the V1 comby? I might have changed colours. :P Looks AWESOME! Is that finish available on other models?

I haven's seen one I like better than the first run Candy Apple Green. The second run Candly Tangerine would be a close second. That transparent blackburst is pretty cool though.

We have one order in transit and another larger order in final assembly. All current orders are sold out, but many basses will be available though dealers. Our next order is due in early spring.

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":170a4gfu]We'll be receiving both Green NG-2's and Standard Combustions.[/quote:170a4gfu] I'm so excited right now. I picked up an old Combustion (00026) a few months back and loving it. I simply can't wait.

They arrived on Monday. We've been going through them all for their initial quality inspection and they are off the charts great. The best yet. We are now disassembling, leveling frets and setting up. We'll start shipping next week.
