Alliance Series Sascha Paeth

Continuing our tradition of Artist Alliances we have teamed up with legendary Heavy Metal & Hard Rock artist and producer Sascha Paeth to create a unique instrument specially designed for high-speed/high-gain use.

Sascha's work as a producer of countless Heavy Albums in the past decades and his role as the lead guitarist for Avantasia had a profound influence on this project.

Solid-Body

The Alliance Series Sascha Paeth is a solid-body guitar made from Ayous. It is specifically fine-tuned for high-gain use and features our new SuperFly neck heel for easy upper fret access. Artificial snake skin.

Versatile High-Gain

Fitted with our CrunchBucker pickup in the bridge position for proper high-gain performance. This pickup gives a fatter, more saturated tone which still remains warm and defined. Paired with our versatile Domino P90.

Icon for Duesenberg Plek Service

Plek Processed

A Plek'd fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our fret polishing and setup work all done by hand that eventually makes our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.

Heavy Rock Masterpiece

The Alliance Series Sascha Paeth is a solidbody construction made from Ayous featuring improved "SuperFly" access to the upper frets of the one-piece hardrock maple neck.

It is fitted with our Chrunchbucker Humbucker in the bridge position - a choice easily made by Sascha being an experienced user of our Starplayer Special model. In contrast, the Domino P90 in the neck position delivers creamy response and cleans up nicely if needed.

Added Controls

We made this Alliance Series even more versatile by adding a few extra controls to the pickguard. A Killswitch allows you to instantly kill the signal for the famous "machine-gun" effect and a small dial lets you preset the volume for only the neck pickup. This enables you to set a clean tone for the neck pickup while being on full distortion on the bridge pickup.

"SuperFly" Neck Joint

The satin clearcoated maple neck joins the body around the 18th fret, providing improved handling and easy access to the upper frets. This is even improved by our newly designed "SuperFly" neck joint giving space for your fingers when playing solos.

PLEKED FRETBOARD

The fretboard is to your music, what the handle of a brush is to a painting. It says a lot about an instrument how much care was taken here.

Every single Duesenberg instrument is expertly pleked for buzz-free playability all throughout the fretboard. It is then carefully finished by hand and precisely set up by one of our professional luthiers. The luthier responsible also leaves his or her signature inside the instrument.

This all is our promise to you that a Duesenberg instrument will always feel great in your hands.
