INTRODUCING THE ALLIANCE SERIES JAMES BOND 007
SIGNED & NUMBERED DAVID ARNOLD EDITION
Duesenberg joins forces with James Bond and long-term collaborator and five-time 007 composer David Arnold to make a unique guitar. Strictly limited to 75, each individually numbered guitar is handmade and personally signed by David Arnold.
The limited edition is inspired by a custom Duesenberg guitar co-created with David Arnold for the Sound of 007 in Concert in October 2022. Played by David Arnold and Hans Zimmer, it was then sold at Christie’s for £32,760.
A UNIQUE COLLECTORS ITEM
BASED ON THE PALOMA, THIS NUMBERED EDITION HAS A MONOCHROME BLACK AND WHITE BODY, WITH THE ICONIC GUN BARREL DESIGN ON THE FRONT AND A GRAPHIC LAYOUT OF THE 25 JAMES BOND FILM TITLES ON THE BACK.
The headstock features a vintage 007 gun logo, while tone and volume knobs are engraved with 007.
“Since Chris Cornell introduced me to Duesenberg whilst we were working on Casino Royale, I‘ve been a huge fan of their instruments. They‘re brilliantly engineered, have a fantastic design aesthetic and an idiosyncratic sound. The Paloma is the guitar I‘d wanted since I started playing. It has a beautiful shape, finish and sound which seems to cover all the best sounds of every other guitar I‘ve played – but in the one instrument. To be asked to design this special limited edition instrument with the guys at Duesenberg was very much a first for me. I hope who ever gets their hands on one plays something from the Bond back catalogue when they take it out of the case.” – David Arnold
