  1. When Leo Fender first invented the Precision bass it immediately became popular with musicians of the day, the instrument was upgraded again in the 60s and has become an icon for bass players around the world. Sheldon Dingwall has brought this design straight in to the 21st century utilising the benefits of fan fret technology which gives a more balanced tone and reduces dead spots. The scale runs from 34.25" on the E to 32" on the G which makes the bass easy and fast to play and the hand carved neck profile is very comfortable, add in the lightweight alder body and you have arguably the finest take on an old school classic. This bass has been further enhanced by the addition of an FD3 pickup in the bridge position and 4 way pickup selector.

SUPER P

The Super P is our interpretation of the Classic P style bass. We deconstructed the original design, kept what worked and improved on everything else. The look and feel lean toward the traditional, but the tone and performance are everything you’d expect from a Dingwall. We downsized the scale 2” from our standard scale range for a faster attack and quicker, punchier decay. The results are great clarity on the B and E-strings with a big and warm quality to the D and G-strings. The Standard features a pick guard and top mounted controls.


Features include;

  1. Novax Fan-fret system and specially designed strings for huge, ultra clear B-string response and balance across the fretboard

  2. Multi-laminated neck to increase stability and decrease dead spots

  3. Custom Hipshot tuners - lighter weight and greater string angle at the nut

  4. Thickness balanced body for better weight distribution and increased resonance

  5. Dingwall designed bridge - lightweight with increased sustain and note clarity

  6. Dingwall Neodymium powered pickups  - more power, punch, clarity and frequency response

  7. Tone-Fusion (tm) circuit - blends between a traditional tone capo and a passive mid-cut. Sweep from super-deep dub tones to aggressive P tones to modern slap tones - all passively

  8. Optional active East designed P Retro


THE NOVAX® FANNED-FRET SYSTEM™ – UNDER LICENSE FROM NOVAX GUITARS®

After years of building basses mostly using the Novax® Fanned-Fret System™, but also some with standard

parallel frets, Dingwall came to the conclusion that the use of this technology makes basses better - period. The

tension and tone from string to string is more even and low note definition is greatly improved. EQing a bass

whose strings are all of a similar tonal character is so much easier than when the low strings have a darker

quality and the higher strings have a brighter quality.


ELECTRONICS ON PASSIVE SUPER P

Just like the original the Super P uses a simple master volume and tone control. The custom pickups give you a wide frequency response and the tone of the instrument will warm and soften when engaged.


NECK CONSTRUCTION ON SUPER P

We take neck construction very seriously due to our extensive experience in guitar repairs coupled with our geographic location and corresponding extreme climate.  In my years in the guitar repair business I constantly had to deal with humidity related problems made worse by the huge temperature and humidity swings of our local climate.  Many of these problems could have been minimised through simple design changes and materials choices.


Touring musicians are constantly amazed at how stable Dingwall instruments are.  Many state that their Dingwall necks are as stable as their graphite necked instruments. We’ve experimented with many different laminations and have found a 5-piece maple construction to be among the best. Years of experience have proven this design to be extremely stable and reliable while minimising dead spots.


CORE WOOD – ALDER ON SUPER P

Alder is the traditional wood for the P style bass. It can’t be beat for a traditional warm tone.
