Imperial Whats unavoidable about the choice of Duesenberg semis is that many wear their Gretsch influence on their sleeve. For example, the Starplayer screams Duo Jet or single-cut White Falcon. But the Imperial is bigger than all contemporary Gretsches that were aware of, and actually closer to Gibson Super-400 territory with a body depth of just over 3.5-inches. The light orange hue applied to the laminated spruce top is very close to the classic orange stain as traditionally utilised by Gretsch, and the entire vibe demands a Fender Bassman and a vintage tape echo!
