QTY:

Recognized as one of the world’s most influential bands in rock music, Grammy-winning multi-platinum selling band Soundgarden started a musical transformation that inspired a generation in its record-breaking career, leaving an indelible mark by helping redefine alternative and hard rock. From their early beginnings in the 1980s performing around Seattle Washington, Soundgarden was one of the most instrumental bands in the creation of grunge and alternative rock. Crossing generational lines, for millions of fans worldwide, Soundgarden created a voice for the youth around the world.

Legendary Soundgarden

Duesenberg incorporated the history of Soundgarden throughout the guitar, encompassing the symbols of their legendary past by celebrating their mark in music. The graceful style of the Duesenberg Starplayer TV was the canvas in developing the Alliance Series Soundgarden Black Hole Sun. For this historic guitar, Duesenberg chose a Mother Of Pearl finish for its vision of the “Black Hole Sun”, as well as symbols from the Badmotorfinger album all the way through the song “Been Away Too Long”. 

Duesenberg Feel

The Starplayer TV guitar has a unique sound that you can't really get anywhere else. Part of this comes from its acoustic guitar inspired wood choice of a laminated spruce top with laminated flamed maple back and sides. This not only makes that guitar sound huge when unplugged but it also gives you a unique classic tone that works wonderfully for any clean or crunch tones. The neck is made out of a single piece of maple that is set into the body and carved to a classic 'D' shape. Finishing off the wood choices you have an Indian rosewood fingerboard keeping the playing slick and smooth.

Quality Tremola

If you have ever played a vintage guitar with a tremolo you will understand the tuning issues that plagued guitarists who dared to use them. Duesenberg were not happy giving you a guitar with a trem that was more pain that it was worth. So they went back to the drawing board and between this new trem and the Z-Tuners you will never have tuning issues again.

Duesenberg Quality

Duesenberg do not cut corners when it comes to building their guitars. From their custom made hardware to the wood choice and the craftsmanship that goes into brining it all together they are hard to match. This guitar is part of their Artist Line and as such it is a bit more special than your standard Doozy with some unique apointments that are not often found anywhere else.

Body to sing

Starting off at the body you have a laminated spruce top on top of laminated flame maple back and sides with a solid sustain block running through the guitar. This not only gives this guitar an almost acoustic like amount of dynamics but almost completely eliminates the feedback issues that you can get with hollowbody guitars.

Neck made to be played

The neck has been carved out of a single piece of maple into their signature D shaped profile that fits wonderfully in the hands without feeling too chunky or too thin. Topped off with Indian rosewood for the fretboard cut off into 22 frets at a 25.6" scale length. After you get your hands round this neck you will fall in love.

Custom Doozy Hardware

If you know Duesenberg you know that they want to control everything that goes into their guitars. This is to make sure that they can deliver the exact guitar they want at a great price and it also means that everything is made bespoke for the guitar you have. From the split shaft style Z-Tuners to their deluxe Tremola everything has been purposefully designed for performance and style.

Signature Pickups

Duesenberg are most famous for one perticular sound and a lot of that comes from their signature pickups. The Domino "Phonico" P90 and Grand Vintage Humbucker pickups are made by Duesenberg in house with components sourced by them and known to be of the best quality around. Everything from the wire to the magnets and even casings are all made out of top quality materials not found anywhere else so you can get the same blues rock sound that has captured a generation of players.

Here's what Duesenberg have to say about the Alliance Soundgarden

The guitar features a custom Duesenberg Diamond Deluxe Tremola with built in spark plug, as well as a spark plug inlay on the 12th fret, a custom decal between the pickups and unique volume and tone knobs. Additionally, there is also a 4-string bass version of the instrument. The unveiling will occur at the Duesenberg USA booth 4878 at the 2016 Winter NAMM in Anaheim, California. This unique guitar will display all of the details, workmanship and sound for which Duesenberg is famous, as well as a number of features which are new to the Duesenberg tradition. The Alliance Series Soundgarden Black Hole Sun Series will be available as a limited 100 pieces run. First orders are expected to be shipped in Spring 2016. We would be happy to make yours.
