This guitar has a semi-acoustic maple body with a spruce arched top, stable maple neck with rosewood fretboard, ingenius pickup design with Domino PH-90 and D-Tron humbuckers, and the Duesenberg Radiator Tremola with superior handling. All together this gives you great tone, amazing sustain and a tremelo arm that’s amazingly subtle and sensitive.
Duesenberg are quickly becoming the go-to guitar for tone devotees who want a guitar that was built just for them. Each one is made to order so you can guarantee the guitar you receive is fresh from the hands of a master craftsman. This full hollowbody double cut model has a vintage style finish and professionally setup hardware. Deusenberg's famed design ingenuity and sonic finesse makes for a truly top end guitar.
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 appointments that are not often found anywhere else.
Starting off at the body you have a laminated spruce top on top of laminated 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 often get with hollow-bodied guitars.
All their fretboards are carefully pleked and finished by hand for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for. 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 25.5" scale length. After you get your hands round this neck you will fall in love.
If you know Duesenberg you know that they want to control everything that goes into their guitars. All their instruments are fitted with their own hardware, which you will only find on a Duesenberg. They design it with attention to even the smallest details to create truly unique instruments from tuner buttons to jack plates. 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.
Duesenberg are most famous for one perticular sound and a lot of that comes from their signature pickups. The Domino 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.
The Fullerton Elite is a semi hollow, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring arched top and back, bent sides and a 647mm scale. The Elite also features a thin body profile of only 3.5cm/1.37" making it rest elegantly on your side.
Following the established Duesenberg essentials, we use spruce and maple for the Elite's main body parts. 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 also shows 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.
All our instruments are fitted with our own hardware, which you will only find on a Duesenberg. We design it with attention to even the smallest details to create truly unique instruments.
All our fretboards are carefully pleked and finished by hand for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for.
Additionally, the Elite is fitted with our Radiator Tremolo, giving you smooth operation and improved tuning stability. Last but not least, we topped it all with some beautiful real pearloid accents with the pickguard and the headstock.
The Elite is available in an elegant High-Gloss Black and a stunning metallic Catalina Blue. The headstock on both instruments matches the overall design character of the main body colour.
The Fullerton Elite is designed to meet the greatest expectiations for tone and aesthetics.
And it will set you apart from all others.
We would be happy to make yours.
