We have more than 40 years of experience in electric guitar hardware design.

Easily identified by our signature 3-Step design elements, our hardware is made to be exceptionally beautiful but also to endure the rough challenges of a life on the road.

Every part on a Duesenberg is designed by us, exclusively made for us and expertly fitted by us. These are parts that you will only find on a Duesenberg. This enables us to constantly push hardware design forward and create handy solutions in every detail of the instrument. Like the option to hide string ends inside the tuner shaft, easily attach strings to the tremolo without hassle, precisely adjust the angle of the pickups and so much more.

We are musicians.

We think music is a beautiful way of expressing yourself.

A Duesenberg is the perfect companion on your journey as an artist. It's an instrument you can grow with, without the need to update to the next, slightly better level.
And because we have spent our fair share of nights on stages, we know what makes an instrument great. Duesenberg instruments are known for their unique voice and clarity that is unlike any other instrument. Every part in the signal chain, from pickup baseplate to output jack, is designed to keep all the rich and vibrant nuances of your tone so you have all the options at hand.

We make instruments for people who have to/want to/love to use them every night.

We make them beautiful to inspire you even when they are just resting on the wall.

We make them sound rich and different with a voice that says, “Hey, let’s do something new today“.

And because you can feel that in every part you look at, every switch you move and every chord you strum, we are always:

Three Steps Ahead.

A solid body that features big sound chambers for enhanced tone and weight reduction. Particularly characteristic tone somewhere between a solid and semi-hollow construction.


Made from a single slab of wood. Delivers instant response, a lot of attack and sustain and perfect feedback resistance.
