Duesenberg : Left Handed Guitars

Neal May 26, 2013 4

Duesenberg Guitars was founded in Germany in 1986 and specialises in producing high-end electric guitars and basses with a distinctive Art Deco design.  The company’s name alludes to the legendary car brand Duesenberg, a USA company famed for their luxury passenger cars and record-breaking racing cars.

Duesenberg currently produces four different left handed guitars.  There are two hollow bodies and two solid bodies to choose from, all of which come in a single finish only, apart from the Starplayer TV which is available in both black and creamy pearl.  Unfortunately there are currently no left handed bass guitars available.

Let’s take a look at the selection from this German brand…

Duesenberg Website

Duesenberg has two websites, one based in the USA and one in Europe which are both fairly similar in design.  Neither site has a left handed section, but left handed guitars are clearly displayed on individual model pages where available.

      Uh, you would need to contact Duesenberg; LeftyFretz doesn’t sell them.

    Fantastic looking guitars and I love the art-deco theme, but surely if that’s the image you’re going for (and especially at this price point) you have to aim a little higher than dot inlays?
