About Duesenberg Guitars

Germany-based Duesenberg Guitars make high-end guitars for artists including The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan and Johnny Depp. The company has a long standing relationship with Bond musicians, including five time 007 composer David Arnold, the late Chris Cornell - who sang Casino Royale‘s title song “You know my name“, and “Skyfall“ singer Adele’s band.

David Arnold says "Since Chris Cornell introduced me to Duesenberg whilst we were working on Casino Royale, I‘ve been a huge fan of their instruments. They‘re brilliantly engineered, have a fantastic design aesthetic and an idiosyncratic sound. The Paloma is the guitar I‘d wanted since I started playing. It has a beautiful shape, finish and sound which seems to cover all the best sounds of every other guitar I‘ve played - but in the one instrument. To be asked to design this special limited edition instrument with the guys at Duesenberg was very much a first for me. I hope who ever gets their hands on one plays something from the Bond back catalogue when they take it out of the case."
