The D-Roc Custom is our take on this classic design. Our version is very balanced, with no neck dive!
This passive 3 pickup design features a super sleek khaya body, matching wood pickguard and the great tone and definition you look for in a Dingwall. Most colors we offer are available in a matte finish.
Available in 4 and 5 strings
Khaya body, matching wood pickguard. Black Hipshot/Dingwall hardware.
We designed a downsized tribute headstock with Hipshot Ultralite. The results are excellent balance and solid performance.
In my years in the guitar repair business, I constantly had to deal with humidity-related problems made worse by our local climate’s colossal temperature and humidity swings. Simple design changes and material choices could have minimized many of these problems.
Touring musicians are constantly amazed at how stable Dingwall instruments are.
We’ve experimented with many different laminations and have found a 5-piece maple construction to be among the most reliable. Years of experience have proven this design to be extremely stable and reliable.
We offer a 5-piece laminated wenge and roasted Ash neck options.
The V3 bridge is our newest minimalist bridge design. It is lightweight, solid and simple to adjust. A single wrench adjusts both the action and intonation.
The wrench size has been carefully chosen to be universally compatible with metric and imperial systems. As with the Z and Afterburner bridges, the adjustments are set and forget, leaving you free to focus on your music.
The hidden ball pocket simplifies restringing, making the process quicker and easier than ever before. The “bridge in pocket” design allows the bridge to be mounted to flat or curved top basses. The bridge sits on adjustable macro-shims that allow for the perfect string angle to be achieved no matter how high or low the desired action.
FDV pickups are made in-house. They feature Alnico 5 magnets which offer high output and a smooth but aggressive tone.
Dingwall strings have been meticulously tested to maximize performance and deliver a tone that blends effortlessly with any style of music. We were the first company to design strings specifically for multi-scale instruments. Available in both nickel and stainless steel, our strings provide an even tension for optimal balance, letting you experience the warmest highs and the tightest lows possible.
Note: basses are shipped with Dingwall Nickel Strings
