quantat's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A PURE wonder"

Duesenberg Carl Carlton
Made in Germany.
Some imported parts (knobs Japan selector USA, Italy input jack).

Duesenberg vibrato: a beautiful face and it not tune the guitar (even the G string)


It is a marvel: the handle is perfect.
It is a bit heavy due to the size but not more than a solid body of solid wood. It does not prevent me from playing more than 4 hours in a row without dropping out (while I tired after half an hour with my Cort Artisan B4).


I use it with a VT30 or directly via the sound kord ax1000g: I get clear sound and powerful slap, round and warm sound, great for crunches. I found this guitar on all the sounds I was looking for (after trying other well-known brands ... maybe too familiar?)


I use it for two months, but I already played on a TV Starplayer (including microphones and acastillage are identical) and I can not sleep anymore.

I tried various shift box which I still have some gripes (including the high end), especially in terms of finishes.

The Duesenberg is ultra neat, down to the smallest detail: the knobs are not those found on low-end guitars (as is the case for cetraines brands) and are not likely to use the pick guard style "art deco", follows the shape of the guitar is topped by a metallic bar with the trademark symbol, like vibrato both massive and worked (adjustable in length), the selector is heavy and solid and produces an elegant "clack".

I had not ever seen the mechanical system: the fate behind the head string (finite strings soil / if / you fall half in the fingers). Grover's my cheap Washburn are next to those. Even the mechanical design is worked.

Exceptional value for money in my opinion (I almost had recoiled trying another scratch of a great brand, the price was double, wondering if the seller was not mistaken in the picking).

I can not say that I like the most: aesthetics, sounds, finish, handling ... everything is as wanted.

I would do this choice, of course, without the slightest hesitation.

Come visit the "hall of fame" Duesenberg: a European brand that appeals to guitarists across the Atlantic ... there's a real reason for that.

Duesenberg Carl Carlton
Guitar German, half-cash (cash or quarter for the purists ...).
It is similar to 335 for the manufacture, table and back in plywood Sides + central block, handle al.
Micro P90 in severe acute signs PAF and Duesenberg. Bigsby vibrato.
One volume, one Tone knob a three-position, bending the body and neck, back flame of beautiful translucent table revealing the wood grain, whatever the color.
The finish is beautiful, nothing to do with the Gibsons of the same price (ES 333). Price: 1600 euros tui.
The handle is a medley. Large enough and flat key, tune Fender type long.


Well it's quite heavy, it is not an alder tl .....
Equivalent weight of a Les Paul or a 335. 335 the same template.
The hoop is perfect, the guitar is perfectly RULES book.
Gnral comfort is good, however it is not a guitar for crazy speed. Rather a guitar to play with the guts or sensiblilit.
CSTA is quite difficult to acute, but not more than 335.
We feel that the dj in acoustic guitar sound and the sustain is good.


Then it's fabulous. The best guitar I recently jou far. Yet I have tried tons wanting to dpart a Gibson. In fact, I sold an old Les Paul for me to pay and without regrets.
Defines how the sounds so the range is wide but still with a lot of characters.
First, the micro serious is warm and dynamic, extremely prcis. It ranges from jazz, blues, punch, just playing on the attack, volume and tone. It's pretty Sidr. The stamp is like a PAF with more DEFINITIONS.
The tone knob is of great progressive think it's electronic active! It can darken or more frankly lgrement Sonora. Ditto for the volume. Is lowered slightly and the sound changes, loss of punch and brightness zoup then a bit of a knob and redcoiffe ca ......
CHARACTERISTICS This is reflected in the other two configs. Postion the middle is interesting, just between the gretsch twang and out of phase Start.
The micro is sharp puncher and warm trsdfini. It is equivalent in Gibson and less messy. This is not a micro hard though ...... By lowering the volume, decreases the dynamics and is approached his 70's.
Short of an amplifier is the top lamp. One can find the grain of Paul Person in Live, shuffled to the DEFINITIONS, punch and warmth.
In short try. I have long rflchi, tried 335, and 333, the new, old and yet I have not found a guitar as good as the carl carlton. In addition she is beautiful in Sunburst, much more beautiful than in the picture on their site ......
Notices may be DIFFERENT course, some will hate the other love, so try it. I had a sound in the head and the Duesenberg's what's most others.


In short no regret, superb violin, Electronic Top, characters, heat, DEFINITIONS.
The report quality price is of course fantastic, especially compared to 3000 euros dbourser need for a 335 ..... The 333 does not play in the same short (finishing quality infrieure).

espelette.peppe's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Duesenberg Carl Carlton
German guitar design, semi-hollow central beam and table bomb al Saddle sleeve with rosewood fingerboard (22 frets)
Table pica multi Saddle and back fire.
Mcaniques bath dhuile Kluson, Bigsby vibrato type with a guide rope for easy mounting of the strings.
Duesenberg pickups, Vintage Grand position lead and rhythm in position P90.
Slecteur 3 positions, volume and tonality.
Finishing Art Dco usual brand, body binding, neck and head.


Trs comfortable and manageable, although a little heavy, this guitar can play up without fatigue, but for small sizes, the prfrez Starplayer TV.
The handle has the usual profile of Duesenberg, a compromise between the handle section dun vintage Gibson 335 type and length of 64.7 cm lon found that the almost total Fender.
Your exact is comfortable and enjoyable to play if we do not take a guitar hero.


In the neck position, the P90 dlivre a warmth, a little jazzy, but well suited to rock trs. Your exact is round, serious and prcis while staying warm.
Center position (the Great Vintage Splitt is typical Twang is the sound that recalls the sound Duesenberg P90 vintage Fender or some slightly warmer than average, your exact is again trs prcis.
Solo position, not surprisingly, the Vintage Grand dlivre crisp, prcis that supports saturation without drooling.
I use a Fender 60 watt all-tube


I have this guitar for 2 years (in fact I have 2) I like everything and I can not find a default ... and yet I looked. The only complaint is the weight and size but it is the type who wants a guitar that goes for a big Gibson or Gretsch, so if I do not cite these brands at random because it ' is in the register lies the Carlton ... but a price divided by 2 or 3.
I tried many guitars before ... actually has to be my 30th or 35th and guitar is by far the best.
I redid this choice because I have two and I also have a Double Cat of the same brand and is also a real bomb.

François JR's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Duesenberg Carl Carlton
See above


Trs enjoyable round for the picking Access in with a good treble.

Guitar PSE weight (that's a it sounds) fortunately I play sitting down. For my 185 cm it fits well trs.

The knobs are sensitive trs (2 volumes 1 Tone general) and it is very easy to find a good sound. I seem to change depending on the type of guitar used rglage.


Playing mainly picking it absolutely necessary.

I use a Sovtek Mig 100 head office and MARSHALL MODEL 1960 + 412 1 LEXICON MPX 110.

I use a lot of the inning with a micro SETTING THE plutt Tone serious. The sounds are clear, distinct and warm.


Since 2005 Fvrier I am the happy owner.

The violin is excellent. There is no edit rglage.

I tried GIBSON GRETSCH and other REFERENCE who are in this area. But the bill is Whereas Different. Duesenberg about two to one of the other two.

I would do this and my next choice will Imprial.

BRAVOS Duesenberg.
