Semi-Hollow Construction

Semi-Hollow guitars deliver a unique and open response that cannot be compared to a Solid-Body instrument. Our specialised construction additionally blocks most feedback and keeps you going even on high gain levels.

PLEK Processed

A Plek processed fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our multi-step fret polishing and setup work all done by hand that eventually makes all our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.

Icon for Duesenberg Multitone Potentiometers

Middle Pickup Blend

The ingenious Multi-Tone control works from a tactile middle stop. In one direction from the middle stop it acts as a classic tone control. Turn it in the oppsite direction and blend in the middle pickup in any position.

Duesenberg Guitars Starplayer TV Custom Pickups

D-Tron Humbuckers

The Custom sports three of our special
D-Tron Humbuckers.

These Pickups are fine tuned for an open and transparent tone with crispy sparkling trebles not usually associated with humbucking pickups.

Our unique wiring allows you to blend the middle pickup into the mix in any position. This is made possible by our Multi-Tone Pot which acts as both a tone- and middle pickup blend control from a tactile middle stop position.

Duesenberg Tremolo System

The sweetest Tremolo in the world

The Custom is fitted with our own Diamond Deluxe Tremola in gold. This Tremolo is the pinnacle of countless years of innovation and improvement on the original design from the 50's.

From maintaining a stable tuning through high quality German bearings, easy and comfortable stringing of the instrument to brilliant options of customizing the action of the arm - the Diamond Deluxe has it all and delivers it in a sexy package.

Flamed Maple Back
