We are honored to announce the new Duesenberg Alliance Series Guitar with Grammy Award-Winning band Soundgarden: Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil, Ben Shepherd and Matt Cameron.
From their early beginnings in the 1980s performing around Seattle Washington, Soundgarden was one of the instrumental bands in the creation of grunge and alternative rock. Crossing generational lines, for millions of fans worldwide, Soundgarden created a voice for the youth around the world.
We have incorporated the history of Soundgarden throughout the guitar, encompassing the symbols of their legendary past by celebrating their mark in music.
» BLACK HOLE SUN« ALLIANCE SERIES
The graceful style of the Duesenberg Starplayer TV was the canvas in developing the Soundgarden Alliance Series. We chose Mother Of Pearl finish for this historic guitar as our vision of the »Black Hole Sun« with symbols from the »Badmotorfinger« production up to the »Been Away Too Long« record. We have also created unique volume and tone knobs that feature the Soundgarden logo.
The unveiling will occur at the Duesenberg USA booth 4878 at the 2016 Winter NAMM in Anaheim, California.
This unique guitar will display all of the details, workmanship and sound for which Duesenberg is famous, as well as a number of features which are new to the Duesenberg tradition.
The »Gran Majesto« is part of our brand new line of guitars for 2016. Its 45mm sides and semi-hollow construction, featuring a solid centerblock, provide you with typical Duesenberg flexibility from clean to rock tones and even further. Our new open style tuners allow for smooth tuning and weight reduction on the headstock and the new »Phonico« pickup line is love for both your ears and your eyes.
The »Gran Royale« is the new big boy in our lineup. It features 60mm sides and a full hollow construction with soundpost for a real Rock‘n Roll attitude. Twin F-Holes, a floating transparent pickguard and unique »Duesenberg Wing« inlays on the fretboard further build on that character. Our new 4-Way pickup selector is located at the lo-wer cutaway and adds a new variation to the way we combine pickups.
»It‘s all about the curves.«
The »Paloma« is for those who seek ultimate flexibility. The three pickup layout featuring our »Grand Vintage« humbucker and two matched Duesenberg Singlecoils, »Pearlito« and »AlnicoBlade«, offer a wide variety of sounds for any situation. The four pickup combinations are accessible through our new 4-Way rotary switch. All of that is topped off by our premium »Radiator Tremola«, de-luxe »Diamond« fretboard inlays and a beautifully shaped body contour.
