6 string LTD B206 with spalted maple over ash.

If they only made a B205 of this while retaining the 35" scale (their 5's are usually 34"...)

Find a used BTB1006e. Prestige Japan built, astounding quality and action on the one I played, the Bartolinis sound awesome. They were $1400 originally but you can get a used one for $500-700 based on my research. Not spalted, though, if that's what you really want.

35".

Well honestly I wish it was 37" or 38" scale due to standard downtuning (G# C# F# B E). 35" isn't enough. I've tried bigger strings, but then I get buzz. Medium strings are middle between being too floppy/notes die too quick vs fret buzzing. If I had a longer scale, I'd be set.

I've got a soft spot for spalted, but aesthetics come 2nd.

Ha! I don't know if I could ever deal with playing a Dingwall live. I'd be too busy worrying about dinging it (no pun intended) :lol:

If I had the choice, I'd take that red Afterburner II. I'm not much into red, but that looks really droolworthy!
