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 deliver 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 design 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 colours, Tobacco Burst and Black. Both feature an Aluminium Duesenberg Stop-Tailpiece.
