Introducing the Duesenberg Alliance Series.

We are proud that for the first model of this brand new Duesenberg Series we had the honor of working together with one of the most remarkable and influential musicians of our time. In alliance with Joe Walsh we developed an instrument which not only meets Joe’s requirements for tone, looks and playability but which is aimed to also fit the taste of many other guitar players out there.

The instrument features numerous different details connected to Joe’s style or history. The fretboard inlays spell his name in morsecode, referencing his passion for radio operation. Being a serious guitarhead himself, he also likes to mess around with the hardware of his guitars, often resulting in weird hardware finish mixes, so for this reason the hardware of the Alliance Joe Walsh is a mix of nickel and gold.

The instrument will be available in a beautiful classic Gold Burst or solid Black finish. According to the main colour, the instrument has a Fullerton Elite Style headstock front in either Gold Burst/Brown or Black/Pearloid. The Tibetian Knot on the top between both pickups is a symbol of very personal meaning to Joe which he also carries as a tattoo. The guitar features a thin body profile measuring only 3.5cm/1.37″, a regular Duesenberg mid D profile Neck and medium Jumbo frets. A Duesenberg Little Toaster pickup delivers transparent treble tone in the bridge position and the state-of-the-art noise-cancelling Duesenberg SingleTwin Singlecoil gives clear classic neck sounds in any situation. The guitars are equipped with our own Radiator Tremolo which we customized with a golden grill just because it looks so cool.

Specs:
• Available in Gold Burst or Black
• Thin 3.5cm/1.37″ body profile
• American Hardrock Maple Neck
• Indian Rosewood 12″ fretboard featuring Morsecode inlays

    Hi Andrej,

    befinde mich momentan in Entscheidungsfindung… Was für eine Schöne! Bin auch auf den Preis gespannt. Müssen Kunden aus D. auch bis Sommer zwecks Verfügbarkeit warten?

    Gilt das auch für die neue Starplayer DLX in schwarz?

    Gruß
    Mike

    I assume the nut width on the Joe Walsh Alliance model will be 1.654″? If not please let us all know what it is. This is my “next” Duesenberg – beautiful guitar.

    Thanks

    Hey,

    you created a real beauty. Can you tell me which material the bridge is made of? Is it aluminum or brass?

    Thx

      Hi Kevin,

      the Duesenberg Radius Bridge (which is fitted to all our instruments) is made from a zinc-aluminium alloy. The saddles are made from sintered steel for extreme durability and longer string lifetime (steel strings on steel saddles is the best you can get).

      Let us know if you need anything else.

    I just ordered a Gold Burst model from The Guitar Sanctuary in McKinney Texas. Lead time is 3-4 months. Brian Meader is the sales manager and great to work with no matter where you live. I live out of state but it ships FedEx right to my door so it could not be any more convenient. I can’t wait to get my hands on it. It will hold a special place in my collection.

    Thanks

    P.s. I would love to experiment with some of the Doozy effects pedals and possibky own a few, but I find the price is just too high to buy sight unseen/ heard. Any other way to get a “taste” of the tones any of these pedals might offer?
    Thx
