SHIPPING

We put a strong emphasis on fantastic shipping practices. After learning from shipping thousands of guitars, we have come up with a few shipping rules:

  1. We only ship instruments and amps with FedEx or UPS.
  2. All shipments (besides inexpensive accessories) are shipped with a signature required, no exceptions.  
  3. Instruments are packed so there is no movement in the outer box, and/or inside the case (this is the key!).
  4. Plenty of tape!
  5. Always have shipments on the truck the same (by 2pm ET) or next day.

You will receive a tracking number as soon as your order ships. Please note: Tracking numbers usually take 24 hours before they appear in FedEx/UPS/USPS systems.  All delivery changes (hold for pickup, address change, etc.) must be requested before your purchase leaves our store, otherwise, they are the responsibility of the customer.

RETURNS

You can return an item for any reason (simply just don’t like it, etc.) 5 days from receipt of the item. This does not apply to international orders nor to instruments with custom modifications completed by our tech team per the customer's request (pickup change, strap button install, etc.) You will need to pay the return shipping cost and actual outgoing shipping cost (even if “free shipping” is offered), as well as applicable restocking fees dependent on your payment method (usually a 3-10% fee).

If an item is damaged in shipping, we will always complete a return at $0 cost to you (we will cover return shipping, and charge no restocking fee no matter the payment method, etc) AND/OR offer a partial refund to fully cover the issue. Please notify us within 48 hours of delivery if there are issues with your instrument. 

We highly recommend reviewing our full return policy before purchasing.

New body shape, same phenomenal Dingwall engineering and quality!

Body Core
The average weight of the D-ROC Standard is a low 8.5 to 9.5 lbs.
Finish: The Gloss/Matte D-ROC Standard finishes are a polyurethane color and top coats. This industry standard finish is long-wearing and beautiful for years of service life.

Neck
Neck Construction: We take neck construction very seriously due to our extensive experience in guitar repairs coupled with our geographic location and corresponding extreme climate. 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.

Neck Carve: Medium thin C shape
Neck Reinforcement: Heavy duty truss-rod

Headstock
Headstock design - flat. We designed a downsized tribute headstock with Hipshot Licenced Ultralite tuners. The results are excellent balance and solid performance.
Standard Fingerboard: Pau Ferro
Fret Options: We use 18% hard nickel silver fretwire. Lee Sklar turned us onto the benefits of small frets. The advantages are a more woody, less metallic tone, smoother glissandos and a faster feel. Our standard size is “banjo” size. This is the same size as you’d find on most guitars from the 50’s and 60’s. Although its size is smaller than standard bass fretwire, its service life is about the same.
Position Markers and Inlays: 3 mm plastic face dots, 2 mm plastic side dots.

Electronics
Pickups: The FD-3N pickups are made to our specifications. They feature Neodymium magnets which offer high output and a smooth but aggressive tone.
Pickup Options: 3 pickup neck/middle/bridge
Standard Electronics: Passive, FD-3n pickups, Vol, rotary pickup selector, passive tone
Pickup Switching: Position 1 - Bridge (CCW), Position 2 - Bridge/Middle (Parallel), Position 3 - Middle, Position 4 - Bridge/Middle/Neck (CW)
Knobs: The D-ROC Standard now features Smoked Nickel knurled dome style knobs with a set-screw.
Jack: 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 D-ROC Standard to be as reliable as it is great sounding and looking so we install the traditional style jack plate with a Switchcraft brand jack.

Hardware
Hardware color: Smoked Nickel
Tuners: We tested a lot of tuners when designing the Combustion. We were able to find an open-back tuner that met our requirements of light-weight and smooth feel. These tuners will provide years of trouble free performance. We also chose them to have the exact same hole specifications as both Gotoh and Hipshot tuners so replacement or upgrades down the road are a simple process.
Bridge: We started with an available bridge/saddle system that met our requirements for lock-down solid performance and great tone. Then we improved on it by designing a custom riser system to provide increased range of action adjustability.
Strap Pins: Standard

D-ROC Standard Fingerboard radius: 240 mm (9.45”)
