Unique looks, unique tone

The Double Cat sounds like nothing else.

The Double Cat is made from solid alder featuring large sound chambers. The body is fitted with a flat maple top featuring a Cat Eye styled F-Hole. This distinct construction of a solid but chambered alder body combined with a flat top and a one piece maple neck gives the Double Cat the special tone which musicians all around the world came to love.

The Double Cat is equipped with our proven pickup combination comprising of the classically wound GrandVintage humbucker for the bridge and the smooth and creamy Domino P90 singlecoil for the neck. The middle position of both pickups features our special wiring, which splits certain low end frequencies out of the humbucker signal. This creates an open and extremely versatile addition to your pallet of sounds.

Duesenberg pickups are known for their distinct, clear and versatile tone that easily cuts through the mix from mellow Jazz to supercharged Rock.

Our creamy Domino P90 in the neck position and the classically voiced GrandVintage Humbucker at the bridge form an all-around dream team many have tried to replicate.
The acclaimed middle position of the heavy duty 3-way switch features a special wiring that filters certain low-end frequencies out of the humbucker signal. The result is an open, funky and extremely versatile addition to your pallet of tone.

What we learned about German Silver

The quality of the components in a pickup is vital when it comes to delivering the best tone possible right from the start. You cannot get back what is lost here. That is why we use a special material called German Silver for the baseplate and cover. It's the only material that does not have a negative effect on frequencies transmitted by the pickup.

We also use a very specific insulated wire that we get from an old German copper wire factory. The coil is wound slowly, simulating a hand winding to give the pickup all the natural imperfections that make it sound great. The result is an extremely wide and defined frequency output that doesn't limit you or what you want to do.

Double your Z-Tuners

The Double Cat comes in a 6- or 12-String setup.

Both versions feature our unique Z-Tuners that make restringing your instrument a breeze.

Duesenberg Z-Tuners are specifically made to give you a super smooth and precise feel when tuning. They also allow you to elegantly hide the end of the cut-off string inside the tuner shaft so it's not damaging your case, gigbag or fingertips.

Service free life guaranteed.

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.
