Duesenberg Julia Collection – Black
A solid body that features big sound chambers for enhanced tone and weight reduction. Particularly characteristic tone somewhere between a solid and semi-hollow construction.
The Julia features our innovative Duesenberg Split/King Pickup. This pickup is capable of delivering both real humbucker and real singlecoil tone through a special construction unlike any other pickup.
A pleked fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our fret polishing and setup work all done by hand that eventually makes our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.
JULIA IS FOR THOSE WHO SEEK STYLE, ARTISTIC FREEDOM, A FRESH APPROACH AND GREAT SOUND QUALITY.
The two pickup layout featuring our own Domino P90 and Split/King dual-coil offers a unique variety of sounds. All this is topped off by a design that radiates the pure elegance of 50’s and 60’s guitar design.
MAHOGANY & MAPLE
Julia is made from solid premium mahogany with large sound chambers, a maple top and elegant double binding. The neck is made from a single piece of maple fitted with a rosewood fingerboard and a cream binding.
SPLIT/KING DUAL-COIL PICKUP
THE DUESENBERG SPLIT/KING DUAL-COIL AT THE BRIDGE POSITION OPENS UP ENTIRELY NEW POSSIBILITIES FOR YOUR TONE.
The innovative coil concept makes both tonal worlds, singlecoil and humbucker, available by the flick of a switch.
The Split/King Dual-Coil does not simply split a full-size humbucker to create a singlecoil. Instead, it starts with a real singlecoil pickup and adds a certain type of coil to make it also sound like a humbucker. This is a completely new approach to creating both tonal worlds in a single pickup.
The mode of the pickup can be selected with a switch behind the tremolo. The other switch acts as a direct out switch that routes the bridge pickup straight to the output jack, bypassing all other electrical components.
DIAMOND DELUXE TREMOLA
MEET THE VIBRATO SYSTEM THAT HAS CHANGED THE IDEA OF WHAT A CLASSIC DESIGN CAN DO.
Buttery smooth action, reliable tuning stability and string changes that are a breeze are just the main aspects of our unique vibrato design.
The Diamond Deluxe gives you the best tone while being lightweight. Heavy duty needle and nylon bearings give you the highly responsive Duesenberg feel when using the vibrato arm. The arm itself can be turned freely for 360° and can be adjusted to your preferred angle and length. The strings are simply guided through the holes in the bar underneath the arm-axis and can be lead to the tuners without any hassle.
Proven daily on the stages of this world.
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.
Julia is available in two striking colors: Black with a distinctive figured pickguard and Narvik Blue with a classic Aged White pickguard. Both feature our special Duesenberg “Wing” inlays on the rosewood fretboard.
THE FRETBOARD IS TO YOUR MUSIC, WHAT THE HANDLE OF A BRUSH IS TO A PAINTING.
It says a lot about an instrument how much care was taken here.
Every single Duesenberg instrument is expertly pleked for buzz-free playability all throughout the fretboard. It is then carefully finished by hand and precisely set up by one of our professional luthiers. The luthier responsible also leaves his or her signature inside the instrument.
This all is our promise to you that a Duesenberg instrument will always feel great in your hands.
