2013 Duesenberg '59er
For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 2013 Duesenberg '59er.
We just acquired this guitar in a trade and in addition to being blown away by its shear beauty and styling we were super impressed with its tone and playability. This guitar is mint with original case and hang tag.
As described on the Duesenberg website...
The 59er is a chambered solidbody, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring a solid arched top and a 647mm scale.
With reference to classic electric guitar construction, maple and mahogany are our choice woods for the 59er. Its neck and main body is made from fine mahogany, which perfectly supports the overall idea of tone and attitude for this instrument. The body is then sound chambered to further improve weight and resonance characteristics. Finally, this is literally topped by a solid, arched flamed maple top which we hand select for a beautiful, yet natural grain.
Keeping in mind what the 59er will be used for primarily, we fitted her with two of our fine Grand Vintage humbuckers, providing her with the tools to become what she was meant to be - a real rock guitar. Still, we wanted to give her the ability to breathe out clear, transparent sounds. Therefore, in the middle position of the pickup selector, certain low end frequencies are filtered out of the signal of the bridge humbucker, clearing up the mix and adding the pearly trebles we all love.
All our instruments are fitted with our own hardware, which you will only find on a Duesenberg. We created it with attention to even the smallest details to create truly unique instruments from tuner buttons to jack plates.
All our fretboards are carefully pleked and finished by hand for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for.
For the 59er, we took the same Diamond fretboard inlays we designed for the Starplayer TV DLX, making this one of the very few instruments to feature them.
The 59er is available in two different versions. There is the Tobacco-Burst edition, which features a Duesenberg standard aluminium Stop-Tailpiece and there is the All-Black edition which is fitted with the Diamond Deluxe Tremola Short. The Tremola is mounted on an adapter baseplate and can easily be swapped for a standard Tailpiece.
The 59er is amongst our most desired instruments to date.
