What We Think

Weight: 8.25 Lbs

This guitar is absolutely stunning - something about this color is just so classic! I've heard a couple guys say it reminds them of a fancy old school car - you will definitely feel cool playing this one. Great balance of warmth and punch from the smooth neck pickup and the sparkling bridge tone. Resonant and airy - this guitar has everything we've come to love from Duesenberg: beautiful aesthetics and excellent playability. 

Manufacturer's Description from Duesenberg

We have taken our Fullerton series and continued to meet the standards of the elite players in the world. The Fullerton Elite is a thin body semi hollow which comes with our new Radiator tremolo accompanied with elegant lines and our classic accents. High class vintage-pearloid – made of genuine celluloid – used as pickguard and headstock material underline the exclusive look.

The fantastic sound is delivered by a D-Tron humbucker at the bridge and PH-90 Single Twin in neck position. The PH-90 sounds like a P-90 single-coil pickup, but without any hum. The Fullerton Elite will deliver the traditions Duesenberg is known for and set you apart from all others.

Duesenberg Guitars

About Manufacturer

Duesenberg Guitars exploded on the scene a few years ago and have been turning heads ever since. These days everyone is playing a Duesey, from Mike Campbell to Bob Dylan to Ronnie Wood. The build quality and price-point are hard to argue with. Here at Sound Pure we always have a healthy stock of Duesenbergs and are happy to special order if our inventory does not suit your needs.

In a unique way Dieter Goelsdorf's Duesenberg design consolidates guitar construction, features and sounds which have written music history. The art deco style design of headstock, pickguard and metal components gives Duesenberg its own eye-catching look, while the body design bases on the old traditional Jazz guitars like being built from the 40s in Europe and in the USA. These design elements are combined with the best possible electric guitar construction values of the 50s: Grand Vintage Alnico pickups, classical Fender scale length plus a Gibson-like fingerboard radius. Most of the vintage-style tailpieces, bridges, tremolos, pickups and controls come with greatly improved details. The light weight plus comfortable position of controls of these stage and studio guitars provide a distinctive playing performance and handling for the most demanding player.
