And now Nolly with a signature?

https://www.facebook.com/adam.getgoo...00531675561945

Yesterday, Nolly posted a (GORGEOUS) prototype Dingwall and said "keep your eyes peeled at NAMM"

Just now, he posted, via ask.fm, in response to someone asking "what was the deal with" with the bass he posted.

"I don't want to give too much away at this point, but suffice to say it's an instrument aimed specifically at the progressive player who wants to tune low and still have an aggressive, tight and clear sound. It's a prototype, so bear in mind not all features are there yet ... all will be revealed at NAMM in January!"

Hm....

Needless to say, if this IS true, congrats to him!

Even if it's not, that's a sexually attractive bass.

From what I understand, the combustion is the only "cheap" option from Dingwall and most of the custom instruments they offer are very much in the higher price range.

If its an import, like the Combustion, then it'll probably similarly affordable, but if this a USA model, it'll probably be somewhere over $3k.

But neato. A Combustion isn't... TOO hard, price point wise.... Been looking for a good bass for some time. Might be time to save up!

Canadian model, not USA

Looks like a yellow Combustion with modified pickup location and a 3-band preamp.

Definitely looks like a slightly modified Combustion, but with the Z2 and Leland Sklar series Musicman type pickup location.

Very cool to see Dingwall coming out with lots of new things lately. Especially the ABXXX (3-pickup varieties).

That looks pretty damn cool. I wonder what the full spec list is.

What is Periphery's current bass rig set up? Is it still Axe FX-2 into monitors or something?

He uses the Axe FX 2 running a tone-match patch of the Darkglass B7K into an Ampeg. Used to be direct into the board but I think I saw something about him using 6x10 cabs and matrix Power amps...

Dingwall doesn't do any lefty models. Lots of people are upset by this but I think I've read that part of the issues is not only the time it would take to program all the CNC machines to build lefty parts, but that they also do not have any lefty builders/ techs, so final setup would be difficult.

Lefty's are on Dingwall's list of inevitables.

I wouldn't hold your breath on a 6-string Combustion, as Dingwall sells a much, much smaller number of 6-strings compared to 5s, and the Combustion series is only profitable in large numbers due to economies of scale.

My prediction is that you'll be able to save for a 6-string ABZ or ABI well before a 6-string Combustion is even announced, let alone in production. Plus, the ABs really are a HUGE step up from the Combustions, in my experience and opinion.

at the several thousand dollar mark id more than likely get a warwick anyway. i don't really have any interest in playing much lower than B and 34 can do that very well with the right strings. fanned frets are something id (and id think others would) like to try but i don't make enough money to spend all that on something im not certain ill even get along with. you really think the market for a 6 is that much smaller than 5? id bet a sizable portion of combustion 5 owners would have gotten a 6 if they could have.

Keep in mind an ABZ 6-string is just above $2k, and I'd much rather have that than a Warwick (personal preference.)

You would lose that bet.

Fanned frets are not a big deal. And a Warwick's low B will never rival the clarity and evenness of tone that a Dingwall can produce.

Keep in mind, Dingwall's AB and Z series basses come in four- to six-string versions, so they have access to sales data including the demand for various numbers of strings. If the 6-strings were more popular than the 5s, they'd know and would probably have introduced the Combustions as 6ers.

However, the number of 5s they sell VASTLY outweighs the number of 6s, to the point where finding a Dingwall 6er for sale, used or new, is quite difficult.
