The Dingwall D-Bird Standard is a cost-effective version of a classic design.  The  D-Bird Standard uses a mahogany body with smoked nickel Hipshot/Dingwall hardware with four stunning finishes available. 

Includes Dingwall Gig-Bag

Dingwall D-Bird Standard Specifications:

Body Core: 2-3 piece Khaya (African Mahogany)

Finish: The gloss/matte D-Bird Standard finishes are a polyurethane color and top coat.  These finishes are long-wearing and beautiful for years of life.

Colors:
  • Aquamarine Metalflake Gloss w/ Matching Headstock
  • Blue to Purple Colorshift Matte w/ Matching Headstock
  • Vintageburst Matte w/ Matching Headstock
  • 2-Tone Blackburst Matte w/ Matching Headstock
Pickguard: Vinyl

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  

Fingerboard: Pau Ferro

Fingerboard radius: 240mm (9.45")

The Dingwall D-Bird Standard 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 D-Bird Standard Electronics: 

Pickups: FD-3N pickups made to Dingwalls specifications

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

Standard electronics 3-Pickup: 
  • Master Volume
  • 4 Position Rotary Pickup Selector (1 Bridge, 2 Bridge/Middle in Parallel, 3 Middle, 4 Bridge/Middle Parallel in series w/ Neck)
  • 3-Band EMG Preamp: 30Hz Bass / 600Hz Mid / 6kHz Treble
Knobs: Smoked chrome knurled dome style w/ set screw

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.
