      Really?  While I get you might not like it, an adjective such as "hideous" really fails to describe that guitar in any way.

    Anything and everything Duesenberg makes is hot. The price is a major ass-raping, though.

      Not something I'd buy, but still pretty hot.  Neck pickup would be even better.

    Hot, but I can't figure out why a guitar with one pickup needs a pickup selector switch.

      according to the website, it's a unique coil tap.  here's what another site has to say about it (seems intriguing):

      "Speaking of tone, Duesenberg crafts all of their own pickups and the P-90 they've put in the Dragster is fantastic. Having the ability to be multi-tapped, this single pickup in conjunction with a 3 way switch can give you everything from jangley, single coil tones to super beefy tones Les Paul Jr oomph that you'll swear might pass for a humbucker."

      Lol. And a p-90 at that.

       

       

      EDIT: I just saw GreatDane answered that question.

      jello!

      i agree.  i love the tones i get out of neck pickups in general.  if i had to have a one-pickup guitar, i'd want that one pickup in the neck position.

    That's just crazy talk.

      Needs another pickup. And why put a rosewood veneer on the headstock and then paint it black?

    Don't let price cloud your decision. If you think it's hot (or not), then that's all that matters.

      I recently got the chance to noodle on a Duesenberg Fullerton Hollow, which is kind of like the ES-330 -- slim fully hollow, P90 pickups. The sound was very nice, kind of chimey and the tone control gave a really nice range of sounds, between the two pickups.

      The price, though, was absurd. Aren't these made in Korea? This one had an asking price of nearly $3300, and really, what are you getting for all that money?

    Hot, but my favorite Duesenberg is the Double Cat.
