Onstage or in the studio, the Dingwall Super P''s modern take on a legendary design can and will tackle it all.

Breaking from tradition can be a slippery slope. But when a talented and passionate craftsman does so with an instrument, the possibilities and results can sometimes be downright incredible. Sheldon Dingwall, founder of Dingwall Guitars, falls into this camp. Whereas not entirely a household name, the basses rolling out of his workshop are known in the bass universe for envelope-pushing designs and superb construction. These attributes—combined with upscale features and versatile tone—have helped turn a number of players on to the quality basses being built in the company’s humble workshop in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

With the RatRod Roadster Custom, Baudier Guitars has successfully synthesized the design aesthetic of the rat-rod subculture and electric guitar design in an instrument that plays and sounds great.
