The Alliance Series Johnny Depp
The Alliance Series Johnny Depp is a chambered body, single
pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring our Diamond Deluxe Tremola, custom
wound JD-63 pickup and an aluminium top plate.
Only few people actually know that Johnny Depp started
acting to support his musical career.
After the success of the Johnny Depp Artist Series Limited
run of 52, Johnny and Duesenberg have gone into production with a new version
of his personal guitar. Being one of the most in-demand actors of the past 25
years, and best known for his character Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of
Caribbean movies, we have redesigned his iconic guitar in the Duesenberg
tradition by telling the story of Johnny’s life from his tattoos; each one
symbolizes a significant event in his life.
The body of the Alliance Series Johnny Depp is made from
American alder combined with an ash top. On top of that, there is an aluminum
top plate in which we etched a selection of his personal tattoos. The tattoos
were photographed from Johnny's body and redrawn by an artist to have them then
applied onto the aluminum top.
What makes this guitar even more unique is the custom tapped
JD-63 pickup which was specially designed to meet every characteristic of a
classic open sounding single coil. Taking it a step further we offer the option
of adding 1963 turns of pickup wire (1963 is Johnny’s year of birth) to the
signal creating a warmer and crunchier tone. This guitar also offers our
classic Diamond Deluxe Tremola continuing the Duesenberg tradition.
All our instruments are fitted with our own hardware, which
you will only find on a Duesenberg. We design it with attention to even the
smallest details to create truly unique instruments from tuner buttons to jack
All our fretboards are carefully pleked and finished by hand
for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for.
