      Very nice. Enjoyed it, although my wife and daughter didn't (no taste).

      Crikey. What a kerfuffle. At least it's there now. Does Dingwall HQ know yet too?

      Oh my god. What on earth happened to that?

      No idea what happened. The body is undamaged though. I have already told Dingwall, but I think they're still asleep ;)

  3. It seems FedEx found my bass body yesterday without noticing me. It was in Memphis all along, and it's supposed to be delivered today. They just e-mailed me "out for delivery", no call, nothing. Thanks FedEx.

      Couriers, couriers, couriers.... Is there such a thing as a good one? :(
      Sorry to hear of your woes. Fingers crossed, that it arrives promptly and safely for you

      There are good couriers: I have never experienced problems with GLS and UPS (although I know many have had issues with UPS). I do know I'm never using DHL again.

      To be fair to FedEx: they did the shipping of the actual Dingwall bass flawlessly.

    Which pickup is in this '69 Fender Mustang?

    TBH it was more a cool restoration project for me, it was white and the neck was made by the same guy that did my P. All that added together gave me the impulse to try and get it. In hindsight you guys might be right It still feels like a cool think to have for me, but then an original one.

    That's why I didn't go for it

    Nah, you haven't seen it up close. It's not firewood.

    Nah, the guy was at my house when I checked it and he agreed on 750. I honestly believe someone offered him 1000 euros. I think the chances that the buyer will pull out are very small. The neck on this bass is amazing.
  8. Spoke to FedEx on the phone. They asked me if it would be a possibility that Dingwall sends me a replacement body. They actually asked it.

      No response from FedEx yet. They have 2 days until the body is officially lost. By FedEx. And they have to buy a new one.

    The difficult bit is a pickguard. They seem hard to find (or I have to get them from the States which could turn out pretty darn expensive). EDIT: Celebrated a bit too early. The dude said yes and then somebody added €250 to the price. Well, I'm not paying €1000 for it. So bad luck.

    Hahaha I have offered him a certain amount of money Wonder what he'll do.

    Well, I checked the bass today. It's not a '69, it's a '72. The neck (including tuners, frets and neck plate) is 100% original. So are the finish (which is a lot prettier in real life), the bridge and the control plate. The pickup, pickguard and pots are replacements and they haven't been very subtle in putting them in. The soldering on the pots is sloppy, the cavity for the pickup is kinda ugly and the knobs are hídeous. Looking through that, however, it has some real potential. It plays great. The original shielding copper plates are still there. I want to buy it (depending on the price) and reinstate its beauty. Cool detail: this mr. Torres (who was an employee at Fender in the late 60's and 70's) made the neck on this bass. He also made the neck on my '71 Precision.

    My thoughts exactly

    Hahah no worries The finish looks awful and especially the pickguard is terrible. Looks like wood fibre to me too.
