When my money tree grows up or when my ship comes in I will purchase my self a Duesenberg Guitar. These guitars are gorgeous. Duesenberg Guitars have a unique stand out look. They are a high quality guitar at a reasonable price for a professional instrument.
I recently got to play a Duesenberg DDC Double Cat Electric Guitar in the fire burst color at Starchild Music Productions in Sandy, Utah. It had come into the shop that day and had just been set up by Floyd Kunz, guitar Luthier and bassist for The Jon Dansie Band. The guitar has a vintage look and feel. It has old school car like paint job think classic muscle car with Art Dec looks. All I can say is it sounds great. It plays great. The tone is bluesy.
Some of the features on The Duesenberg DDC are 22 jumbo frets, traditional set in neck, 2-piece American alder body with sound chambers, maple top (multi-layer), binding on headstock, fingerboard, body top. Super Tremola tailpiece (Can you say way cool?), floating bridge, 3-step kidney-shape tuner buttons, P-90 construction single coil pickup (neck position), vintage humbucker (bridge position), spezial Duesenberg twang sound in middle position of 3-way switch. The Duesenberg guitar probably comes with the heaviest case of all time. All in all it is one sweet rig.
Duesenberg guitars is one of the hottest guitars to come out in a while… Dieter Galsdorf has created a company and a product that is hot white hot. How hot? These guitars have been on back order for a while due to their popularity. I have seen the following artists playing Dusenbergs on TV: Billy F Gibbons (ZZ Top), Ron Wood (The Rolling Stones), Colin Haye (Men at Work), Elvis Costello, Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), Sheryl Crow, Kenny Loggins, Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Carrie Underwood, Joe Walsh (The Eagles), Hugh “Huey” McDonald (Bon Jovi) and Toby Keith.
If you are looking for a beautiful guitar… I recomend Duesenberg. If you are having trouble getting your hands on one contact Jon Dansie, at Starchild Music Productions in Sandy, Utah. He has them in stock and set up ready to play.
In addition to guitars Duesenberg makes basses, lapsteel guitars, vintage effects, and boutique amps all with the same attentions to detail and sound.
