Duesenberg Introduces D-Bass Fretless Bass

Duesenberg D-Bass Fretless Bass

German instrument builder Duesenberg has introduced a fretless version to their D-Bass line of basses. Available in Black and Coral finishes, the D-Bass Fretless carries the same specifications as its predecessors, with the exception of its fretless ebony fingerboard.

The D-bass sports an alder body with a hard rock maple neck. Combining vintage-vibe with modern chic, the pickup is Duesenberg’s split-coil Bass Toaster humbucker that can be switched between parallel and serial modes with a push/pull switch. It also has a mid-shape control, which the company says allows for a “seamless fade from J- to P- bass character.”

The nickel plated hardware includes Duesenberg’s 3-way adjustable bridge, trapeze tailpiece, and deluxe tuners.
