Jeff DaRosa, the rock multi-instrumentalist and a member of the Boston-based punk band The Dropkick Murphys, has collaborated once again with Duesenberg and together we have come up with this amazing guitar which has one pickup but three completely different sounds.
These sounds are paramount for the Dropkick Murphy sound that we all know and mirrors the life growing up on the streets of Boston, Massachusetts.
Jeff goes into more detail by telling us the following, "When we go into the Studio, Tim likes to use his humbucker semi-acoustic and James goes on the other side with his humbucker solidbody and I like to go straight up through the middle with a single coil sound. But I also need something to kick ass live on stage and my new Duesenberg Alliance Series does all of this, so now I have found my perfect guitar."
This pickup can switch between real humbucker and real singlecoil mode. But it is not the splittable humbucker you might expect.
It actually houses a real singlecoil which can be extended to a full humbucker with a second, specially designed coil to actually deliver the best of both worlds. As a third option, the pickup can be set into an in between mode where both coils are mixed in a special way to give you even more flexibilty.
The Alliance Series Jeff DaRosa is based on our brand new Senior design but comes in a breath-taking all over Catalina Green Burst finish with a nickel finished armrest, Duesenberg "Wing" fretboard inlays and a laser-etched single volume control.
This Alliance Series guitar comes with a certificate of authenticity hand-signed by Jeff DaRosa, Duesenberg CEO Ingo Renner and the luthier who finished the instrument.
