John Taylor talks about his latest collaboration with Dingwall Guitars — the new Rio Dream Bass. With a sleek custom finish that takes its inspiration from Duran Duran’s seminal Rio album cover, the John Taylor signature model embodies the personality and stylistic range of the band’s 1982 multi-platinum record.
Specs of the new bass include an onboard preamp designed and configured in collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs. “With Duran Duran, the bass has to occupy quite a narrow bandwidth,” says John. “You just need that really direct, low-end punch and I found Dingwall to deliver exactly that.”
