Dingwall Guitars

Sheldon Dingwall wasn’t yet a teenager when he began machining his own guitar bridges. The process of guitar building has been in his blood ever since, as has his interest in all things music. When he was 19 years old he owned his own record company, which was followed by three years touring with a local band. In 1987 he formed a company building replacement scalloped guitar necks, which soon developed into selling full bodies. Sheldon also created parts for other companies (OEM) and his own brand, which includes models that have been in production continuously for over 30 years. Have a chat with Sheldon and you will get a hint of that 12-year-old’s passion and excitement.
