Super J

The Super J is a reinvention of the classic J-style bass.

The look and feel lean towards the traditional, however the tone and quality are everything you’d expect from a Dingwall. For ideal clarity on the B and E-strings, alongside a big and warm quality to the D and G-strings, the scale length has been shortened by 2″ from our standard length.

Super P

The Super P is our interpretation of the Classic P-style bass. We deconstructed the original design, kept what worked, and improved everything else. 

The look and feel lean toward the traditional we all love, but the tone and performance are everything you’d expect from a Dingwall. We downsized the scale 2” from our standard scale range. The results are great clarity on the B and E-strings with a big and warm quality to the D and G-strings.

Lee Sklar Signature

Best known for his bass work with the likes of James Taylor, Lyle Lovett, Phil Collins, Toto and Carole King, not to mention The Immediate Family, the Lee Sklar Signature is a result of our long-standing association with session legend Lee Sklar. “It was hard for me to find a 5-string I liked until I met Sheldon Dingwall,” says Lee. “The B-string is the best bottom I have ever heard – I think it is the additional string length that makes the difference. I will be playing these basses for the rest of my life.”

Tricked out with a modified Glockenklang 3-band preamp and a seriously well-appointed feature set, the Sklar Signature appeals to the working pro who needs to cover a lot of different stylistic ground. “For years I had been looking for a 5-string that actually had some clarity in the bottom end, and with Dingwall I found exactly what I was looking for.”
