This 2020 Duesenberg Paloma is in excellent, nearly unplayed condition. The D shaped neck feels fantastic in the hand and is exceptionally comfortable. The frets are in nearly unplayed condition and show no signs of play wear. This guitar has been set up and plays outstanding up and down the fingerboard with low smooth action and spot on intonation. This Paloma is a pleasure to play. The Duesenberg pickups sound superb and because of the pickup configuration, this guitar is extremely versatile. The bridge position humbucker has a very open, articulate and round tone that is very airy and excels with both overdriven and clean tones. Both the neck and middle position single coil pickups are clear, snappy and very balanced. This instrument has great, usable tones in every position. The Duesenberg tremolo on this guitar is by far, in my opinion, the smoothest operating and most usable tremolo unit in the business. It’s really just a pure joy to use and it stays in tune like a champ. All the hardware on this guitar is top notch. This guitar is housed in its original heavy duty Duesenberg hard shell case and it includes all paperwork and case candy. If you are searching for a righteous playing and sounding instrument with an exceptionally attractive finish and flawless build quality, then this Paloma checks all the boxes.
