i am not a lefty but my best friend is. lusts for a dingwall and he is so impressed by my AB1.
just my opinion, but if a premium was charged for a lefty, could it ever be worthwhile to cater to the southpaws?
i bet lefties would be willing to buck up for a chance to play these killer basses.
is there any hope in the future?

Really appreciate you bringing this up joebar as in the past couple of years I have been getting more and more requests for a lefty Dingwall bass. Sheldon and I have discussed it to the point of deciding on some necessary features (ie Z-Series bridge and saddles) and realize that it is in our future. It is simply a matter of making it a priority for a small company that has more projects on hand than there are days in a week. Continued and increasing requests will only help bring the situation into reality. Quick answer to your question, yes I believe there is hope that in the future we will offer a lefty.

I come back once every 2 or 3 months to see if dingwall has opened up for left handed players. I love the company, love the quality, workmanship and tone of your basses even though they are almost impossible to play lefty. that said your products are almost useless to me being a long tenured tradition lefty. i love you guys but we cant have a relationship til you accept me for who i am haha... a lefty!

until next quarter or so when i come back to check on you.

Love
Jeff aka skylandbusta

I am a lefthanded bass player and have been playing bass for over 30 years. I own 4 beautiful lefthanded basses (1 Ibanez, 3 warwicks) that I purhased through this period.
It is a pity that Dingwall does not provide lefthanded versions for their wonderful instruments. This is a controversy for a company that takes justified pride in its masterfully crafted instruments and innovative approach, as well as being close to the individual musicians and listening to their needs.

Today, most of the instrument manufacturers offer lefthanded versions to most of their models. Many, like Warwick or Ibanez, do not charge a surplus for this, which is a socially correct approach towards not labeling a normal natural feature as a "different", or "problematic" handicap that cannot be addressed at, or has to be charged an extra cost for.
I am certain that Dingwall has corporate and social responsibility high in its values, being a musicians' manufacturer.

I would happily try a Dingwall bass (D-Roc is now in my sights), if it were available in a lefthanded version.

Please, consider your social responsibility options and give this 15% of musicians the opportunity to not be left out.


thank you for listening,

Antonis Nikoloudakis
