The D-Roc is Dingwall's striking offset instrument. Combining alluring vintage-style curves with their precision-engineered playability, it's a formidable modern instrument with just the right amount of rock 'n' roll mojo.
Body & Neck
The D-Roc features a sleek but eye-catching body design. Looks aside, it is the instrument's materials that are more key to its focused and detailed sound. The tonewood of choice for the body is African Mahogany, known for its accentuated midrange and a brighter attack.
A 5-piece Maple neck coupled with a heavy-duty truss rod further complements the treble response while ensuring maximum hardiness. Dingwall manufacture has long-been exposed to extreme climate conditions, so they know a thing or two about reinforcing necks! Finally, a Pau Ferro fingerboard adds a little extra warmth and a smooth feel to boot.
A noteworthy feature of the D-Roc is its multi-scale design. With a 36.25" scale on the low E string and a 34" scale on the G, the higher string tension on the lower strings gives the bass more punch and clarity where it matters most.
Fanned frets allow for super-accurate intonation across the entire fingerboard, with their slanted placement suiting the natural resting position of your hand. It may look odd at first, but you'd be surprised at how easy it is to adapt to this type of neck!
Hardware & Electronics
The D-Rock Standard is triple-loaded with FD-3N passive pickups. The key to their punchy tone is the use of Neodymium magnets; higher output means a more aggressive sound. This lines up nicely with the tonewood combination, with plenty of midrange bite that produces a distinctly modern tone.
A 4-way switch offers a surprisingly broad tonal palette. Dingwall also opted for a traditional jack plate with Switchcraft jack connection to ensure maximum reliability. Finally, slick black hardware is used throughout, with Dingwall Combustion tuners and a specially designed bridge with a custom riser system - increased adjustability and sturdiness all in one.
