In alliance with Joe Walsh Duesenberg developed an instrument which not only meets Joe’s requirements for tone, looks and playability but which is aimed to also fit the taste of many other guitar players out there.
In a career spanning more than 40 years, Walsh has been a member of five successful rock bands: the Eagles, the James Gang, Barnstorm, The Party Boys, and Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. His guitar lines have helped make the Eagles a name known across the world and in 1977 his lead lines won Hotel California Record of the year at the Grammys
This guitar has some incredible, unique features. The fret markers spell out Joe's name in morse code, referencing his passion for radio operation, the Tibetan Knot on the top between both pickups is a symbol of very personal meaning to Joe which he also carries as a tattoo and, being a serious guitar-head himself, Joe likes to mess around with the hardware of his guitars, often resulting in weird hardware finish mixes, so for this reason the hardware of the Alliance Joe Walsh is a mix of nickel and gold. Check out the gold radiator grill tailpiece.
American Style, German Made
