We've machined one prototype body to test out the tool paths, here are some photos of the second body. This will be the first one machined on the new CNC.

Add to that 3 Hail Mary Mother of Jesus. Sheldon. Please officially accept my order for that no.1 Prototype, with a maple neck / non matching headstock / 5 strings / 3 tone sunburst / tort guard. Pearl dot inlays in the middle a-la Fender not to the side of the G string. Not blocks. p.s.: I thought you were going to add tone chambers? I love what I see.

Francesco, prototype will be heading to London to Dave Swift who will be playing it on the Jools Holland New Years Hootenany show which tapes next month. I will arrange for you to check it out. Neil Murray is also waiting to get his hands on it and as well would expect Jonny might relish a test drive.

So, I guess that means we'll be seeing some finished shots in a matter of weeks then? :D

Lovely! Very interested! When I bought my ABZ6, I was doubting between a six and a P5. Fallen in love with the ding ergonomy. So we are looking at the birth of the ancestor of my next bass. Yeah!

[quote="Smallmouth_Bass":1gmlgbmv]So, I guess that means we'll be seeing some finished shots in a matter of weeks then? :D[/quote:1gmlgbmv] That is correct. [quote="Iv@N":1gmlgbmv]I usually hate P-bass bodies, but that looks HOT![/quote:1gmlgbmv] Thanks. It's real close to a P but every curve has been reworked for better flow. [quote="Funkshwey"]Sheldon will there be a rear route and reversed P pu version too?[\quote] Probably not a rear-rout and for sure not a reversed P due to the pickups looking very odd when flipped on a fanned-fret P.

Can't wait to see this. Dingwall GAS never ends.

Cool! Is that a suction setup that holds the body down on the CNC table during the cutting? I'd love to see a video clip of the new CNC working.

I can't understand this hype for a Dingwall P. If there's a remarkable demand for it, Sheldon will develop it; ok. That's his business. But, all you guys please tell me: What's so spectacular about a Split Coil P? It's the first bass ever produced in larger amounts; okay; and it's a legend. But it has been improved in the last 60 years. Why do you wanna go back? Most of the actual Dingwall basses are able to reproduce a quite good vintage P sound playing the neck PU and using the tone control. So is it just the look (body shape)?

For me, it's definitely the look. A SuperPJ might be a superb choice otherwise. I'm not looking into getting one, I like my long scale. But maybe the P will be cheaper, maybe the neck profile will be different.

For me, it's partially the look, the body shape and the simplicity of the design. A volume and a tone control; it doesn't get much simpler than that! The benefit of having a Dingwall version of that is the playability, the fanned frets (benefit of a 35" B and the punch of a 32" G) and the attention to detail and minor refinements that you don't often see in a mass produced factory bass.

I've always preferred the P body over a jazz. It's going to look great with an SJ headstock.

Dee, there's nothing that sounds like a good American Pbass, IMO. If this SuperP comes close to, or surpasses, the the real thing, then we must have it. I built up a Novax fanned fret Pbass and it sounds unbelievable. Had to do that because there was no SuperP at the time.
