Includes Dingwall Gig-Bag

Dingwall Combustion 6-String Specifications:

Body Core: 2 piece Swamp Ash Body  

Finish: The gloss Combustion finishes are polyester base topped with polyurethane color and top coats.  This industry standard finish is long-wearing and beautiful for years of life.

  • Natural (Ash Body w/ No Top)
  • 2 tone Blackburst (Quilted MapleTop)
  • Vintageburst (Quilted Maple Top)
  • Indigoburst (Quilted Maple Top)
  • Whalepoolburst (Quilted Maple Top)
Pickguard: Matte Black

Neck Specifications: 

Dingwall takes neck construction very seriously due to their extensive experience in guitar repairs and understanding of extreme climates.  Dingwall experimented with many different lamination techniques and have found a 5-piece maple construction to be among the best.

Neck Carve: Medium thin C shape

Neck Reinforcement: Carbon fiber reinforcements and 2-way truss rod

Headstock: Flat with string retaining bar.  

Dingwall has combined the minimalist shape of the Afterburner headstock with the lightest import tuners they could find.  The result is an excellent balance and solid performance.

Fingerboard: Maple

Maple has a nice snappy top end that really enhances the attack of the note.  Dingwall now finishes the NG maple fingerboards with a satin polyurethane to maintain stability.  The entire neck is finished with the same finish.

Fingerboard radius: 240mm (9.45")

The Combustion bass features a single radius fingerboard.  This makes for a very comfortable playing experience.

Fret Material and Size: Dingwall uses 18% hard nickel silver fretwire.  

Lee Sklar turned Dingwall onto the benefits of small frets.  The advantages are a more woody, less metallic tone, smoother glissando and a faster feel.  Dingwalls standard size is "banjo" size.  This is the same size you would find on most guitars from the 50's and 60's.  Although its size is smaller than standard bass fretwire, its service life is about the same.

Position Markers and Inlays: 3mm plastic face dots, 2mm plastic side dots

Dingwall Combustion Electronics: 

Pickups: FD-3N pickups made to Dingwalls specifications

Featuring Neodymium magnets which offer high output and a smooth yet aggressive tone.

Jack: The jack is one of the most critical electronic components of a bass.  It is the most likely to suffer abuse so needs to be rugged in order to be reliable.  Dingwall wanted the Combustion to be as reliable as it is great sounding and looking so Dingwall installs an amazing socket style jack plate with a Switchcraft brand jack.  This is the most reliable system you will find in this price range.
