Dual Split/King Pickups

The Duesenberg Split/King Dual-Coil Pickups open up entirely new possibilities for your tone. The innovative coil concept makes both tonal worlds, singlecoil and humbucker, available by the flick of a switch.

The Split/King Dual-Coil does not simply split a full-size humbucker to create a singlecoil. Instead, it starts with a real singlecoil pickup and adds a certain type of coil to make it also sound like a humbucker. This is a completely new approach to creating both tonal worlds in a single pickup.

The mode of the Pickups can be individually selected with two heavy-duty switches placed underneath the pickguard. A small elevator mechanism allows you to set the height of the switches the way you prefer them. Always switching the modes? Set them high. Like to keep your preset? Set them low so they are not in the way.

Nickel Hardware

Most of our hardware is nickel finished.

You will find the geometrical three steps in almost every part on our instruments, from the curves on the headstock to the shape of the output jack.

When compared to regular chrome finishes, nickel has a beautiful warm and elegant sheen and ages naturally over time. It's the way things were done before chrome became the standard. If you don't want the hardware on your instrument to age, we recommend regular cleaning.
