The Paloma is a solidbody, three pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring an alder body, short Duesenberg Radiator Tremola and a set neck with a 648mm scale. The Paloma is for those who seek ultimate flexibility.
The three pickup layout featuring our Grand Vintage Humbucker and two matched Duesenberg Singlecoils, Pearlito and AlnicoBlade, offer a wide variety of sounds for any situation. The four pickup combinations are accessible through our new 4-Way rotary switch. All of that is topped off by our premium Radiator Tremola, deluxe Diamond fretboard inlays and a beautifully shaped body contour.
Additionally, their Diamond Deluxe Tremola proved to be one of the best of its kind, providing buttery operation and outstanding tuning stability. 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 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.
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.
We are proud to present four well known Duesenberg models with a spectacular new finish that is truly out of this world. The 2018 STARDUST SERIES represents the very best craftsmanship that Duesenberg has to offer in four of our most popular models.
All the guitars equally feature creme dot inlays and bindings plus a black pickguard. The elegant Stardust finish covers the entire body, neck and headstock, along with the precision and uniqueness that you expect from a Duesenberg Instrument. Our Paloma guitars are played by many of the top players around the world, and have become one of the staples within the music industry.
We would be happy to make yours.
