I would buy Duesenberg Joe Walsh model...
Gretsch + Rickenbacker + Hofner = Duesenberg?
Not my opinion as such ... was pure guess more like.FS,
I don't know what Gretsch + Rickenbacker + Hofner = , But I have my doubts that they equal a Gretsch Double Jet copy, named after a vintage automobile.
You can have your Duesen-Gretsch, I'll take Gretsch, Rickenbacker, Hofner...any day of the week, by a mile.
Please note...I do respect you opinion.

Does not matter at all, as I will not gonna use 3000euros for any guitar. In real I tend to purchase guitars between 500euros and 1000euros. That price range will offer quality - price ratio which I'm able to accept. If my salary/livelihood would come from music, then maybe...
But dreaming is fun ...

Duesenberg's line reminds me very much of Harley Benton Guitars.
Instead of putting their efforts into something original, that they can really call ''their own'' they make near copies of brands such as Gretsch, Gibson, Rickenbacker...and a couple of others.
For that kind of money, you can buy the genuine brand, not a facsimile.
Further, Like Harley Benton, Duesenberg is European based, but that's no guarantee the base of manufacture is in Europe. They have that ''over-glossed'' MIC look. Not that there's anything wrong with MIC, a few of my regular players are MIC, including two Gretsch models, but neither of them were 3000 Euros.
If you look at Duesenberg's web site, see attached, they show what I would refer to as a ''kit guitar''. I'm inclined to think, this is what Duesenberg Europe receives from ''Offshore'', and they assemble and finish the guitars in Europe. This is pretty much the same thing US based Phantom Guitars does.

That buys the Streamliners and Electromatics. Fender Player series, G&L Tributes, high-end Epiphones, Yamahas, mid-range Ibanez, etc. I even got two new US-made Gibson Tributes (LP and SG) on sale for less than $1K.
Right now the US dollar buys .98 euro. I don't think I've ever noticed $ that valuable before.
Edit: for some reason I had the impression that the euro was always worth much more than the dollar but checking the history shows a dollar has bought between .80 and the .98 is close to a high.
