Duesenberg Guitars Announces the Triton Bass

Duesenberg Triton Bass Gold

Germany’s Duesenberg Guitars has unveiled a new bass model called the Triton. Its name reflects its three-pickup configuration.

“Three volume calibrated and tonally tuned pickups in Duesenberg phonico covers deliver a rich, well-balanced bass signal,” the company writes. “The solid five-way switch plus the serial/parallel wiring provide an unusually wide range of sounds for a bass, while the massive Duesenberg Triton Bass Bridge provides the necessary foundation to weld together an entire band.”

Duesenberg builds the Triton with an American alder body, one-piece maple neck, and an Indian Rosewood fingerboard with PLEK fret processing. It comes in either Black or Goldtop finishes. Other features include pearloid dot inlays, Duesenberg Z-Tuners with “Art Diego buttons, and a Custom Line case.

The Duesenberg Triton is available now with a street price around $3,000.

    Great bass; I’ve had one for six months… This model is a couple of years old??
