Dingwall Combustion 5-String Bass Natural Ash

The Combustion succeeds in providing the ultimate combination of tone, performance and value, making it perfect for both stage and studio work. Thanks to Dingwall's hybrid manufacturing approach, each bass receives a final fret level and is set up by their skilled team of artisans in Canada, which means you can enjoy all of the cutting-edge Dingwall benefits at a more affordable price.

The body is swamp ash and modelled on the Custom Shop Afterburner. It’s compact and lightweight, making for a bass that’s comfortable to wear and beautifully balanced. The five-piece maple neck is securely attached via four bolts and the fingerboard employs Ralph Novak’s fanned-fret system and a 34–37” scale spread (the scale length of the B string is three inches longer than the G), with a 240mm fretboard radius making it superfast over a full two octaves.

The Combustion comes fitted with Dingwall FD3-N pickups that are made to Dingwall's exacting specifications using neodymium magnets, which offer both high output and a smooth, but aggressive tone. They’re wired to a 3-band EMG preamp, along with a 4-position Quad-tone pickup selector, master volume and an active/passive toggle switch.

The bridge started with an available bridge/saddle system that met the requirements for solid performance and great tone. Dingwall then improved on it by designing a custom riser system to provide an increased range of flexibility when it comes to adjusting the action.

The headstock combines the same minimalist shape of the Afterburner with the lightest import tuners Dingwall could find. They collaborated with Hipshot to modify their Ultra-lite tuners, which resulted in a shorter tuning peg that allows proper downward angle at the nut for maximum sustain and improved stability.
