A Dingwall branded Levys Gigbag is available seperately.
Core Wood – 2-3 pc Alder body
Alder is the traditional wood for the electric bass. It can’t be beat for a traditional warm tone with strong mids, damped highs and warm but not overpowering lows.
The average weight of the NG model is a low 8.75 lbs.
We take neck construction very seriously due to our extensive experience in guitar repairs coupled with our geographic location and corresponding extreme climate. We’ve experimented with many different lamination and have found a 5-piece maple construction to be among the best.
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 minimized 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 minimizing dead spots.
Headstock design – Flat, string retaining bar.
We combined the minimalist shape of the Afterburner headstock with the lightest import tuners we could find. The results are excellent balance and solid performance.
Maple on NG Models
Maple has a nice snappy top end that really enhances the attack of the note. We now finish our maple fingerboards with satin polyurethane. To maintain stability, we also finish the neck shaft with the same finish.
NG Fingerboard radius – 240 mm (9.45”)
The NG bass features a single radius (240 mm) fingerboard. This makes for a very comfortable playing experience.
The FD-3N pickups are made to our specifications.
The jack is one of the most critical electronic components of a bass. It’s the most likely to suffer abuse so needs to be rugged in order to be reliable. We wanted the Combustion to be as reliable as it is great sounding and looking so we install the amazing socket style jack plate with a Switchcraft brand jack.
This is the most reliable system you will find in this price range.
