It's a beautiful guitar, the finish irrprochable nothing to envy or gibson gretsch upscale.
It is comfortable despite its size, the game sitting poses no concern is well balance and weight raisonnable.Un getting used to nanmoins is Necessary for the game who is accustomed to standing the solid body.
the handle is shaped trs enjoyable "C" I would say that it is close to a handle are 335.
Access in acute is ais.
vibrato is excellent but not well suited to uses extreme, the mounting Systm amlior strings from the Bigsby traditional grace of the recesses and practical guides trs.
gretsch ergonomics is typically the only BMOL for me is the location of the knob under the arm vibrato.


It's a great guitar for anyone who wants tater jazz (a little), blues, rock, country or rockab.
it comes with strings 10/50, now I sound IMMEDIATE 11/50...Elle climbs, the empty sound is excellent dj and powerful enough to work single branch is a rgal is powerful and all combinations that you esssayerez, you APRS habitus to be DIFFERENT rglages you meet, the soft twang to you and above all can find any use.
All potentiomtres be used on all their race.
You will get sound from the crystal clear fat crunch without any difficulty is a matter of rglages, (I did not test larger distos is irrelevant I think).
I use a fender hotrod deluxe, for the music mentioned above is impeccable.


I bought this guitar 6 months there, new (2140 euros), I compare the date with a gretsch 6120 rvrend horton signature mod .... I took the Duesenberg.
She is beautiful, it sounds, it is perfectly finished, all The elements are of high quality is of high quality and at a price much more reasonable than gibson or gretsch for MODELS equivalents.
This guitar is try it, just go somewhere we do not find a distributor anywhere (in my region, north, there are several)
I am the happy owner of a 2005 Fender American Deluxe, a Gibson Les Paul Standard, I wanted an archtop of quality ... well I have and I'm delighted.

Duesenberg Imperial
See the specifications on the site
consistent with those announced
What about the Varitone?


Channel OK
Access to the 18 acute jusu'à easy after you go slower but it is not the goal
Healthy weight
We feel the frets.
The sound is already there empty, it sounds terribly balanced.
Easier to play sitting and standing one suspects


While attention is
This guitar is very accurate but it helps the game does not allow cheating
In which case it transcends or eliminates ...
not on saturration to hide.
In fact with a horn section and so on ... I play funk, RnB, soul, rock or jazz ..
and I play the amp's in the rehearsal room or scenes
My config a tube screamer and more, and a tuner (Point bar) and this guitar or a strategy for maxique + Heavy
I tried on a Microcube IMPERIAL marshall mosfet 100 and a WTTS.
Each time no one rating higher than the other +
Clean sounds from country to jazz to rock (with an amp correct, means the résonnace of the box, you can play every note saturated and listen!)
+ Saturated crunch sounds possible style OASIS, ACDC ... I beyond a stratum with a DiMarzio


For a week.
The +: the sound on, plans to play encourages you would not dare, musicality
convenient volume knob,
the -: the other knobs a little less convenient, Varitone not very effective with an amplifier means,
The look is great, everyone drool, it's like on the photo site ...
With this guitar it makes its sound.
I did not hesitate at all with the Gibson (ES series sounds are too well known and exclusive)
I hesitated with GRETCH but I did not want to pay the brand (I prefer outright purchase copies) 30% unjustified.
I will add one after my rehearsal
After more than 3 months
TERRY problem guitar vibrates rather not connected I think there is a problem of welding or other inside. I hope it will be settled with the distributor or manufacturer JE keeping watch!
ADD MY ... I finally got my guitar that had a bad rib stuck ... I was told that it's rare ca not happen to me in 30 years of scratch .. BofDuesenberg was not very pro
one month of the skyscraper capital despite the good tracking playback ...
I want to congratulate
