We are honored to introduce the Duesenberg Alliance Series
Guitar with Grammy Award-Winning band Soundgarden:
Chris Cornell (r.i.p.), Kim Thayil, Ben Shepherd and Matt Cameron.
Recognized as one of the world’s most influential bands in rock music, Grammy-winning multi-platinum selling band Soundgarden
started a musical transformation that inspired a generation in its record-breaking career, leaving an indelible mark by helping redefine alternative and hard rock. From their early beginnings in the 1980s performing around Seattle Washington, Soundgarden
was one of the most instrumental bands in the creation of grunge and alternative rock. Crossing generational lines, for millions of fans worldwide, Soundgarden
created a voice for the youth around the world.
Duesenberg incorporated the history of Soundgarden throughout the guitar, encompassing the symbols of their legendary past by celebrating their mark in music. The graceful style of the Duesenberg Starplayer TV was the canvas in developing the »Alliance Series Soundgarden Black Hole Sun«. For this historic guitar, Duesenberg chose a Mother Of Pearl finish for its vision of the “Black Hole Sun”, as well as symbols from the Badmotorfinger album all the way through the song “Been Away Too Long”.
The guitar features a custom Duesenberg Diamond Deluxe Tremola with built in spark plug, as well as a spark plug inlay on the 12th fret, a custom decal between the pickups and unique volume and tone knobs. Additionally, there is also a 4-string bass version of the instrument.
The unveiling will occur at the Duesenberg USA booth 4878 at the 2016 Winter NAMM in Anaheim, California. This unique guitar will display all of the details, workmanship and sound for which Duesenberg is famous, as well as a number of features which are new to the Duesenberg tradition.
The »Alliance Series Soundgarden Black Hole Sun« Series will be available as a limited 100 pieces run. First orders are expected to be shipped in Spring 2016.
