Dingwall Unveils Super P Bass at NAMM 2012

Dingwall Guitars showcased a modern take on a classic design at the NAMM Show this year with the introduction of the Super P.

Dingwall Super P Bass

Sporting the Novax Fanned-fret System, the bass features a multi-laminate neck for increased stability and decreased dead spots while the body is balanced by thickness for better weight distribution and increased resonance.

The Super P includes Dingwall’s neodymium powered pickups coupled with their Tone-Fusion circuit, which blends between a traditional tone cap and a passive mid-cut. For fans of active basses, John East’s P-retro system is an available option. A Hipshot bridge and tuners round out the hardware.

Dingwall is currently taking orders, with an estimated delivery window of 4-5 months. The base price starts around $2,025 with options to upgrade features. For more info, visit the Dingwall Guitars website.
