Duesenberg Gran Majesto DM2-CTG-S · Electric Guitar
The Gran Majesto is equipped with two F-holes, a transparent, floating Pickguard and a new 4-way rotary switch for pickup choice. This rotary switch extends the usual circuit by a further position.
In addition to the tried-and-tested Duesenberg center position, where low frequencies are filtered out from the signal of the bridge humbucker, the full signal of the humbucker can now be combined with the P90 at the neck. Both pickups are of course individually selectable.
The distinctive face of Duesenberg guitars manifests itself in the art-deco design of headstock, pickguard and hardware, while most of the body designs are based on old jazz guitars, such as those from the 1940s in Germany and in the USA, especially those created by German Emigrants.
Concept, overall construction as well as the pickup circuit have produced a really special Duesenberg sound. But pay attention also to the new frame for setting the pickup inclination! Or the Super Tremola - simple function and comfortable string-pulling.
The highly dynamic Custom Alnico pickups with open nickel-plated nickel silver caps round out the overall picture, so well-known musicians such as Ron Wood, Robbie McIntosh, Carl Carlton, Mike Campbell and German acts such as the Peter Maffay band, Wir-Sind-Helden And many others are among the satisfied Duesenberg customers. The Starplayer TV DTV-CTB-NF is a variant without F-holes.

Great looking guitar, beautifully made by Duesenberg as usual and sounds great.
