Duesenberg Guitars are a brand of the Göldo Music GmbH company from Hannover/Germany that produce electric guitars and electric basses in a very special own art-deco-Style.

The brand Duesenberg has been in use since 1986 by Dieter Gölsdorf for very futuristic Heavy Metal guitar design. In the year 2000 the sales were starting to pick up fast and Duesenberg decided to open a distribution company in America in 2004.

Today Duesenberg is a small but worldwide known and respected brand for premium quality electric guitars with special looks and sound.

The name Duesenberg is identical to that of the car company founded by the brothers Friedrich und August Duesenberg that made the most luxurious and powerful cars in the 1920´s. In many cases the guitars have the same nickname as the car name relatives, referring to them as “ Doozy” The Duesenberg guitars have this special Art Deco flair and are a tribute to the 40´s and 50´s.

Most of the Duesenbergs are designed following the traditional hollowbody construction, much loved by jazz-guitarists.

The other Duesenberg guitars with solid bodies also follow traditional designs. The Art Deco style is found on many applications made to the guitar. Here you will find typical style elements such as grand vintage alnico pickups, classical Fender scale length plus a Gibson-like fingerboard radius. Most of the vintage-style tailpieces, bridges, tremolos, pickups and controls come with greatly improved details. To underline the style some of the guitars are finished in pearl mosaic with chrome.
