Duesenberg Guitars Unveils the Dropkick Murphys Alliance Series Bass
German manufacturer Duesenberg Guitars has announced a limited edition series instruments with Boston-based punk band the Dropkick Murphys. The Alliance Series is limited to 96 instruments worldwide and includes a bass model for Ken Casey.
“In very close collaboration with band members Ken Casey (bass) and Jeff DaRosa (guitar), we have used many of the classic Duesenberg design elements in a new way to create simple, no frills instruments that are ready to rock,” the company writes. “The Dropkick Murphys Alliance Series includes a semi-hollow bass guitar (available in left- and right-hand versions) and a semi-hollow guitar with stop tailpiece. Both feature a double cutaway, 2 f-holes, and a subtle tone-on-tone “Rose Tattoo” decal between the Domino P90 and Grand Vintage Humbucker pickups (between the Bassbucker duo on the bass guitar). All instruments are solely available in a stunning Catalina Green Burst.”
The bass’s volume knob is laser engraved with Casey’s initials (KC) while the tone knob has an engraving of the logo for the band’s charity, The Claddagh Fund. Each instrument comes with a “goodie box” containing a limited edition t-shirt, a hockey puck Certificate of Authenticity, a wood stand for the puck, and four original band guitar picks used on the 2019 Dropkick Murphys tour.
