The history of Göldo Music reaches back way into the 1970s. Precisely in 1978, when "Rockinger Guitars" was founded, with the world’s first electric guitar kits, plus a range of replacement parts at sensible prices. In 1981 they set up their own US distribution company - ROCKINGER-USA - in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Just one year later, the company already shipped tremolos, pickups and pickguards to South Africa and to New Zealand.
In 1991 internal differences led to a split and the founding of Göldo Music which focuses on wholesale, production, distribution, import and export of own and outsourced components.
In 1995 the newly designed, but retro-stylish Duesenberg Starplayer guitars hit the market and are an immediate success. Up to this day, the Duesenberg user list grows bigger and bigger, including names like Slash, Billy Gibbons, Mike Campbell, Ron Wood, Joe Walsh, Keith Urban and Mike McCready.
