Dingwall Super P – Lake Placid Blue

Serial Number: 7108
Weight: 7 lbs 9 oz

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.

Alder provides a traditional warm tone. We build the body slightly thinner than standard to reduce weight and provide a bit more resonance.

I watched an endorser receive a bass from another company once. His tech brought it to him; he strapped it on, took his hands off it, jumped up and down a bit, then said, “It’s too heavy; send it back.” He never played a note.

Not everyone is this extreme, but it taught me a good lesson on the importance of balance.
The Super J headstock was designed not only to look great and fit with the body design but to be the lightest traditional design headstock available.

The most distinctive feature of the Super J headstock is the scallop. The scallop serves two functions. 1. It reduces headstock mass slightly. 2. It defines a three-dimensional Hot Rod style flame on the bottom edge of the headstock. The Super J follows the spirit of the original American Hot Rods. Strip it down to its raw components and build it back up to perform better than the original designers envisioned.

We designed and manufactured our custom string tree. It’s milled from a phenolic and features smooth and rounded string paths for snag-free tuning.
