Manufacturer's Description from Duesenberg

Even being such a versatile instrument, it always retains its discreet character and enriches every type or style of music with its distinct Duesenberg sound. It will remind you of the time when Rock & Roll was still young.

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.
