The Gran Majesto is a big body, semi hollow, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring arched top and back, bent sides and a 648mm scale. Its 45mm sides and semi-hollow construction, featuring a solid centerblock, provide the celebrated Duesenberg flexibility from clean to rock tones and even further.
Additionally, the Gran Majesto features twin F-Holes, a floating transparent pickguardand our new 4-Way rotary pickup switch which adds a new variation to the way we combine pickups.
The pickup switch located at the lower cutaway now lets you choose between a full Humbucker and P90 combination, as well as the typical Duesenberg wiring where low-end frequencies are filtered out of the humbucker signal when both pickups are combined. You can also select each one individually, of course.
The new Phonico pickup covers are our visionary expression of truly independent hardware design. They also prove that nothing really has to stay the same just because it always has been. The inside dimensions are designed to hold most forms of today's pickups, just in case you may want to swap them. We don't think you will.
The open style modern tuners operate smoothly, reduce weight and eliminate sharp string ends sticking out of the headstock. And the design received just as much attention to detail as the rest of the guitar.
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.
The Gran Majesto is available in two variations: The double cutaway version comes in a deep Catalina Green and is equipped with an aluminium stop-tailpiece for enhanced resonance transfer. The single cutaway version is available in a classic Vintage Burst sporting a Duesenberg Radiator Tremola. Both versions are only available in the above mentioned colours and hardware configurations.
We would be happy to make yours.
