Duesenberg has announced a limited-edition Dropkick Murphys Alliance Series electric guitar and bass, designed with Ken Casey and Jeff DaRosa of the Celtic punk band.
The semi-hollow guitar and bass both feature double-cutaway bodies, two f-holes and a ‘Rose Tattoo’ decal between the pickups - that’s a Domino P-90 and Grand Vintage humbucker on the guitar, Bassbucker duo on the bass.
The German company claims its special pickup wiring yields a “unique, direct sound not heard in a Duesenberg before now”.
Both guitars come in a Catalina Green Burst finish and feature volume knobs laser-engraved with KC and JD respectively, while the tone knob bears the logo of the band’s charity, the Claddagh Fund (opens in new tab).
Just 96 instruments will be produced, and each comes with a t-shirt, Dropkick Murphys-played guitar picks, and hockey puck Certificate of Authenticity with handcrafted wooden stand.

This isn’t Duesenberg’s first foray into artist-designed models; you may recall its frankly stunning Soundgarden Black Hole Sun guitar from 2016.
