Duesenberg : Left Handed Guitars

Looking for left handed Duesenberg guitars but unsure which models are available? You are in the right place my friend!

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.

Fun fact – fans of the brand often refer to these guitars as ‘Doozys’!

An awesome quirk of this brand is that they use their very own hardware in order to create truly unique instruments. From the custom pickups down to the tiny details such as the tuner buttons and jack plates, you will only find them on a Duesenberg. All crafted by the finest German engineers!

All Duesenbergs fingerboards are Plek processed to ensure buzz free playability. Afterwards the luthier will expertly set up your guitar and personally sign inside the instrument as a seal of approval. Awesome!

Does Duesenberg Make Left Handed Guitars?

Yes! At the time of writing there are currently four left handed Duesenberg guitars available. These models are the Starplayer TV, the Caribou, the Paloma, and the Gran Majesto.

Technically there are five if you count all of the different colors available.

It’s also worth noting that at the time of writing the Duesenberg USA website does list a few additional lefties, but I am informed that these are no longer available and should be updated shortly.

Left Handed Duesenberg Guitars

1. Left Handed Duesenberg Starplayer TV

Duesenberg Starplayer TV Left Handed

The iconic Starplayer TV is probably the Doozy that you will have seen most often in musician’s hands. This semi-hollow, vintage inspired beauty is built to exacting standards, is chock-full of innovative features, and is an absolute dream to play.

It was designed to be an ultra versatile guitar, capable of slotting in to almost any genre with ease. As a result, many guitarists refer to it as ‘the last guitar you’ll ever buy’.

Main features include a semi-hollow body construction with centerblock for improved resistance to feedback. Duesenberg’s award winning GrandVintage humbucker and Domino P90 bring huge flexibility to the table. The brand’s own Diamond Deluxe Tremola unit is known as one of the best and most reliable vibrato designs available.

  • Body : Laminated Flame Maple Back/Sides w/ Laminated Spruce Top
  • Neck : 1-Piece Maple
  • Fingerboard : Indian Rosewood w/ 22 Jumbo Frets
  • Tuners : Duesenberg Z-Tuners
  • Bridge : Duesenberg Steel Saddle Bridge w/ Diamond Deluxe Tremola
  • Pickups : Duesenberg Grand Vintage Humbucker & Domino P90
  • Finish : Black

You can hear a few of the sounds that the Starplayer TV is capable of in the video below.

2. Duesenberg Caribou Left Handed

Duesenberg Caribou Left Handed

The Caribou is a solid body guitar featuring extra large sound chambers, giving the guitar a unique, yet versatile sound. Think of it as a crossover between a solid body and semi-hollow instrument.

Despite its retro stylings and surf rock aesthetic, the Caribou is able to slot into most genres from mellowed out jazz to hard rock and beyond.

Duesenberg’s proven GrandVintage humbucker and Domino P-90 pickup combo gives a clear and distinct sound that easily cuts through the mix. Clever wiring enables players to filter out specific low-end frequencies from the humbucker for unique and funky additional sounds.

  • Body : Solid American Alder w/ Sound Chambering
  • Neck : 1-Piece Maple
  • Fingerboard : Indian Rosewood w/ 22 Jumbo Frets
  • Tuners : Duesenberg Z-Tuners
  • Bridge : Duesenberg Steel Saddle Bridge w/ Deluxe Tremola
  • Pickups : Duesenberg Grand Vintage Humbucker & Domino P90
  • Finish : Narvik Blue

3. Duesenberg Paloma Left Handed

The Paloma is a solid body, versatile 3 pickup guitar which is available left handed in two awesome colors.

It features the same, legendary GrandVintage humbuckers as the two guitars above, coupled with two matched Duesenberg singlecoils – the Pearlito and AlnicoBlade. The result is a huge variety of sounds which is further expanded via a 4-way rotary switch.

The guitar is finished off with the brand’s lightweight Radiator Tremola, for buttery smooth playability and reliable tuning stability.

  • Body : Solid Alder
  • Neck : 1-Piece Maple
  • Fingerboard : Indian Rosewood w/ 22 Jumbo Frets
  • Tuners : Duesenberg Z-Tuners
  • Bridge : Duesenberg Steel Saddle Bridge w/ Diamond Deluxe Tremolo
  • Pickups : Duesenberg Grand Vintage Humbucker (B) & Pearlito Singlecoil (M) & Alnico Blade Singlecoil (N)
  • Finish : Narvik Blue or Red Sparkle

4. Duesenberg Gran Majesto Left Handed

Finally we have the left handed Duesenberg Gran Majesto, a big body semi-hollow with bags of tone. It features slim 45mm sides, twin f-holes, and a floating transparent pickguard. A solid centerblock helps to prevent unwanted feedback.

Although they look a little different here, the Gran Majesto features the same GrandVintage and Domino pickup combo that is on most of the guitars above. They are cleverly hidden under Duesenberg’s Phonico pickup covers for a cool new look.

  • Body : Laminated Maple Back/Sides w/ Laminated Spruce Top
  • Neck : 1-Piece Maple
  • Fingerboard : Indian Rosewood w/ 22 Jumbo Frets
  • Tuners : Duesenberg Open Z-Tuners
  • Bridge : Duesenberg Steel Saddle Bridge w/ Radiator Tremolo
  • Pickups : Duesenberg Grand Vintage Humbucker & Phonico P90 Domino
  • Finish : Catalina Green

The dreamy video below will demonstrate some of the sounds that the Gran Majesto is capable of.
