What We Think

Weight: 8.25 lbs.

Duesenberg’s flashy and bold aesthetic is mellowed out on this one...but don’t think that means it’s lacking in the tone department!

This guitar has an amazing amount of warmth and mellowness but with a surprising amount of oomph and body for a semi-hollow guitar. The hum-cancelling PH-90 in the neck is mellow and smooth while the D-Tron humbucker gives a great, sparkling bridge tone. Turn on a little distortion and listen to those natural harmonics ring out with a great, bold, and full-sounding saturation. This guitar sounds like a cadillac with the windows down on a summer’s day...and plays just like one too!

Everything from the mellow pickings to the aggressive and driven open chords ring out rich and full, proving that this Fullerton Elite is the complete package for the distinguished guitarist.

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.
