The Falken brings you an entirely new and daring body shape. The new Split/King pickups open up a whole new world of versatility. And its construction was designed to withstand the tough challenges of a life on the road. The companion for the brave. The Falken.
This Solid-Body construction delivers instant response, a lot of sustain and perfect feedback resistance. Carefully shaped alder body combined with a maple neck and rosewood fretboard.
The two Split/King pickups are capable of producing real singlecoil and real humbucker tone. You can select modes with the switches on the lower brushed aluminium pickguard.
A Plek processed fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our fret polishing and setup work that eventually makes all our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.
The split/king is not the splittable pickup you might expect. The innovative coil concept of extending a real singlecoil to a full humbucker with a fine-tuned seperate coil enables you to access both pickup sounds with the flick of a switch. The Split/King actually houses a real, full-size singlecoil pickup that can stand on its own compared to your regular split humbucker. This pickup is the pinnacle of our own component design and delivers a maximum of versatility. It's not just two pickups - it's actually four.
The duesenberg radiator tremola is the evolution of our own vibrato system design. It keeps everything that you love about about our original Diamond Deluxe Vibrato and delivers it in a new and exciting design. Buttery smooth action, reliable tuning stability and string changes that are a breeze are just the main aspects of our unique vibrato design. 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.
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.
Handsome, laid-back and simply a good place for your instrument. Meet the Duesenberg Custom Line Cases.
