    I picked this up in a trade yesterday and I can't help but feel like this is going to become my main recording bass in the future. :shred:

    Good thing that's a 5. If it was a 6 you'd be a dead man, and I'd be tuning my new bass to F#.

    Any chance you can post some soundclips when you get it tuned down to the low E?

    I've been debating if I should sell some gear and buy a Dingwall to go an octave lower, though I haven't really heard anybody play one that low outside of a mix context.

    I pray to the bass gods that they'll force Dingwall to make a lefty of this. A six string version of this is pretty much my dream bass. HNBD! It looks awesome.
