Bridge on Prima Artist, Lee Sklar Signature and Z Series

Dingwall-Custom-BridgeAt Dingwall, we take our hardware pretty seriously. Nowhere is this more evident than our bridges. The Prima Artist and Z-series basses feature Dingwall designed individual saddles with a countersunk sub plate system.
Dingwall-Custom-SaddlesThe saddles feature a unique pin system that anchors the string by utilizing the hole in the ball. This eliminates any stress points on the string where it wraps around the ball.
Dingwall-BridgeDesigned to be “set & forget” simple. Once the string height and intonation are set, the saddle is locked down to the sub plate for perfect coupling. This also guarantees that the saddle never goes out of adjustment accidentally.

Aircraft aluminum is used for the saddles and sub plate as it is lightweight and has a wonderful ring (Aluminum is the material of choice for vibraphone bars).
The riser screws are made from 18-8 stainless steel. These screws will virtually last forever.
