The distinctive face of Duesenberg guitars manifests itself in the art-deco design of the head, pickguard and hardware, while most of the body designs are based on old jazz guitars, such as those from the 1940s in Germany and in the USA, especially by German artists Emigrants.
Concept, overall construction as well as the pickup circuit have produced a really special Duesenberg sound. But pay attention also to the new frame for setting the pickup inclination! Or the Super Tremola - simple function and comfortable string-changing.
The highly dynamic Custom Alnico pickups with open nickel-plated nickel silver caps round of the overall picture, so well-known musicians such as Ron Wood, Robbie McIntosh, Carl Carlton, Mike Campbell and German acts such as the Peter Maffay Band, Wir-Sind-Helden And many others are among the satisfied Duesenberg customers.
