    Considering they're built in Canada, it shouldn't really be a problem :lol:

    Wow, all Dingwall looks so nice... Fan fret, interesting electronics and very good looking design which is a rare package.

    I love how Dingwall has turned "extra heavy weight wood" into a marketing buzzword :lol:

    I dunno if this is relevant to your guys interests at all but I've played a prototype of that Nolly bass while he was down here in Aus. My bass player got more time with it (a few days at least) whereas I had a couple of hours to play it.

    These basses are insane, they make my BTB776 look like a toy. Seriously considering getting one for my drop E material.

    Now it's time to google them and trawl through their catalogue to find out which one I want the most :D

    Can I ask a question? Are the lower priced DW's any good? I can't swing the "regular" versions being shown here at all.

    Youd be surprised :lol: I emailed a pretty big dealer in alberta (axemusic) but other than that, it seems the closest dealer is 1 L&M in the GTA for all of ontario :squint:

    anyone know where in canada these are built?

    EDIT: Saskatoon :lol:

    I had it for about two weeks or so, its a prototype but man! So good!
    37" multiscale, Darkglass pre, modeled off the combustion series body (ie, the cheaper one), pickups have a 4 way selector (bridge, series, parallel and neck), The bridge reminds me of a btb a little, individual saddles. The only thing I didnt really like was the plastic nut... needs a good bone but apart from that its great!

    I bought mine direct from Sheldon Dingwall, shouldn't need a dealer.
    Took 2 days to arrive in sault ste. marie ON from Saskatoon.

    The Combustion is extremely good for being Chinese Built. Dingwall does and awesome job finalizing them in Canada.
    It's my top choice and plays better than every other bass I've had.
    Sounds incredible and it's become even better with a darkglass duality.

    I'm happy with the purchase and would suggest the Combustion to everyone, it will be better than everything in that price bracket.
    I'm so impressed that I'm planning to pick up a legit all canadian model.

    That Afterburner HS picture is misleading, I was gonna pull the trigger but it turns out it does not come with triple pickups as standard. :(

    You can order it with the XXX pickup layout, though.

    "HS" means "Heavy Solid" or something. Essentially, Dingwall usually uses exceptionally lightweight woods, but the HS models don't.

    Thus my snarky comment about turning what is typically a negative into a marketing ploy :lol:

    Also, as a Dingwall owner, I'd much rather spend $200 more than the Nolly and get a real used ABI or a new ABZ. :2c:
