I am SO fucking glad that made it up in one peice, I'd never shipped anything like that without a case before.
I'd have bought one but I literally couldn't find a thing it'd fit in, so I bought a nice gig bag to ship it in.
Long story short, Beard actually plays bass, was never going to leave me alone about it, has a long-overdue Sherman on order, and while that thing was immaculately made the specs probably weren't as good a match for what I'm after as the Dingwall will be, I think.
I'd had some backbow issues and buzz at the nut that I didn't have the right wrench to fix, but I brought it to my tech before shipping who straightened it out. He also happens to be a bassist, and will probably never forgive me when I tell him I swapped it.
Great bass, and seeing in pictures and not on the stand in the corner of my room makes me miss the thing a bit.
still, enjoy the thing, dude, though I call dibs if you ever get rid of it.
