Duesenberg Fullerton Elite – Catalina Blue(1)
ELEGANT AND VERSATILE, THE ULTIMATE BIG BODY GUITAR.
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.
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.
Fitted with out own 10/50 gauge strings. This set is custom fitted for the scale and delivers tighter low-end response and smooth high string feel.

DUESENBERG RADIATOR TREMOLO
The Radiator Tremolo is the pinnacle of Tremolo design and functionality. Known around the globe for its smooth operation, outstanding tuning stability and easy to use adjustability, it delivers everything you can ask from a Tremolo.
THIN AND LIGHT
Unusually thin 35mm sides make the big body Fullerton Elite extremely easy to handle on stage. The arched spruce top is combined with bent sides and arched back made from flamed maple and is perfected with a deluxe 5-ply cream binding around the body. As with almost any other Duesenberg, the Elite sports a one-piece neck made from American Hardrock Maple which is fitted with a 12″ Rosewood fretboard.
The Elite brings a unique pickup combination, which opens up a new range of Duesenberg driven tone. For the bridge position, we took our GrandVintage Humbucker, giving you great transparency and warmth right out of the case. This pickup is accompanied by our SingleTwin Domino noiseless singlecoil at the neck, providing you with just the right mix of attack and open tone you would expect from a classic P90 type pickup.
WE BELIEVE TUNING YOUR INSTRUMENT YOURSELF IS AN IMPORTANT MOMENT BEFORE ACTUALLY PLAYING IT.
Duesenberg Z-Tuners are specifically made to give you a super smooth and precise feel when tuning. They also allow you to elegantly hide the end of the cut-off string inside the tuner shaft so it’s not damaging your case, gigbag or fingertips.
Maintenance-free life – guaranteed.
MOST OF OUR HARDWARE IS NICKEL FINISHED.
You will find the geometrical three steps in almost every part on our instruments, from the curves on the headstock to the shape of the output jack.
When compared to regular chrome finishes, nickel has a beautiful warm and elegant sheen and ages naturally over time. It’s the way things were done before chrome became the standard. If you don’t want the hardware on your instrument to age, we recommend regular cleaning.
MADE TO HOLD SOMETHING THAT LASTS
A GOOD CASE IS ONE THAT’S MORE STURDY THAN WHAT’S INSIDE.
Handsome, laid-back and simply a good place for your instrument. Meet the Duesenberg Custom Line Cases. True flightcase quality, classically shaped, beautifully handcrafted and made to endure the most realistic and unrealistic abuses. It’s a case you can just throw in the back of a car, train or airplane and won’t have to worry about.
