Here's an AB 1.5 (listed as ABII, but it's one of the active ABI's that Jong had made for Jive Sound). This person is in my hood too...no shipping charges...must resist....

Yeah...that looks like a nice one. I hate it when I get my eBay email alerts for Dingwalls!

I've already checked out the one on ebay. I think I found it a few minutes after it listed....I need a life, huh? Is it really called an AB 1.5? What is the advantages over an AB I? I don't have the benefit of playing a Dingwall before I buy, there's no dealer closer than 3.5 hours away. :( Honestly, my AB I blows me away! I can't see me needing any more diversity, tonewise. I actually just leave it set one way, and occasionally flip the switch when I slap. So, since I can't hear the differences, will someone with an AB II tell me what they are? Thanks :)

As I understand it, the AB 1.5 (which is just what we call it) is a limited edition AB I (woods and such) with the active electronics like an ABII. Someone please correct me if this is wrong...

Afterburner on ebay. How does an Afterburner differ from an AB I? I noticed there's no switch. Is $1000 high?

AB is Afterburner

It's an older AB I without the BluEQube but it's definitely worth the money

If only there was not another episode of the "Conspiracy" thread coming......

I think the product descriptions on the Dingwall page should be updated to give more detailed descriptions of the different AB series. For instance, the Afterburner description says they have a one piece neck. I know Ab-I's and (I assume) II's have several pieces. And, I think it mentions the bulEQube. But, that's not in an AB???

I am definitely not Sheldon, but IIRC Sheldon mentioned that in the beginning they were doing 1pc necks for the AB's but because it was getting harder to get good quality boards for 1pc necks they went to 3pc. From my own experience of my 19 Dingwalls I find 1pc (AA I as I call my fist Afterburner for very valid reasons) and 3pc (as ell as 5pc) Dingwall necks all being very very stable.

The update on the website takes time and effort, esp when Sheldon and team always evolve products and produce new ones. I am glad that Sheldon answers questions here and we all are very helpful to one another (and we are a knowledgeable community)

Nice vintagey ABI on Ebay. Boy, if I only had some spare cash as this one will no doubt go for a very reasonable price!

Yeah, I'm definitely not dissing Sheldon. It's just that, I remember when I first checked out the website's product descriptions about 2 years ago. At that time, I was not into forums. I didn't join the forum until the previous owner of my Dinger told me about how Sheldon would help me with any issue I might have with the bass. :shock: That blew me away! And, sure enough he contacted me the next day after my first posting, and has helped w/ all of my questions and issues since.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that some possible customers might be turned off by the not-so-clear product descriptions.....and never experience bass perfection!

Think of the Dingwall Bass Registry (much simpler than updating the website). I have the Excel completed and I have emailed the empty form to few people to fill in. If someone from the Dingwall team is expected to do that, then think of another couple of months in back ordering. I think, as the person with the largest Dingwall family, I must find the time and process all the data in the Excel (from all Dingwall owners who would like to register their basses) before I forward the total to Sheldon to fill in the DoB for each Dingwall.

I just got a Z3, but apparently the horrible affliction known as Dingwall G.A.S. just won't stop :P . If I win this (I'm not even sure how badly I want it, and I definitely don't need it :? ), I'll have it converted to a fretless. Let's see how this plays out.

Wow, that bass seems to be having trouble finding a permanent home. That is a gorgeous bass and at a great price, too. Somebody go get it, quick!

Hey FRB, I'd be happy to fill out a form - maybe this should be a new thread? :D

Vintage Voodoo on ebay. Pre-fire? With updated bridges? If it was a 5'er I'd take it. :(

Post-fire due to the zero fret.
