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 Grand Vintage Humbucker, giving you great transparency and warmth right out of the case. This pickup is accompanied by our PH90 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.
