DUESENBERG IMPERIAL

Overview

Brand name: 

Product: 

  • electric guitars

Dates of manufacture: 

The Duesenberg Imperial is a retro styled guitar, with a design like an early big bodied Gretsch - the perfect look for jazz, rock-n-roll and rockabilly.  It can also produce those rockabilly sounds with a Domino P90 (in the neck position) and a Grand Vintage humbucker and the bridge. Controls are a “Mid-Shift” twang pot, with a volume control, tone control and 3-way pickup selector. It has a Duesenberg steel saddle bridge with Deluxe Tremola tailpiece. It comes in transparent light orange or red burst finishes.

The Duesenberg Imperial D-Tron version has two D-Tron humbuckers designed to deliver Chet Atkins or Brian Setzer tones. The two medium level resistance coils are fitted in humbucker housings, while the thick Alnico magnet delivers high output and sparkling treble response.
