A word from the Duesenberg website on the Starplayer TV Deluxe:
The Starplayer TV DLX is a semi hollow, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring arched top and flat back, bent sides, twin F-Hole construction and a 647mm scale.
Following the tradition of former German luthiers, we selected Spruce as our choice wood for the top. When you turn the guitar around, you will see that we chose flamed maple for the back and sides, which slightly shimmers through the translucent black burst finish.
The DLX is fitted with our classically wound Grand Vintage humbucker for the bridge position, giving you clear and balanced tone in any situation. The neck position sports our D-Tron humbucker, which is known for it’s distinct sparkling voice.Each pickup can be individually modified with our Vario-Tone controls, which allow you to scoop certain frequencies out of the signal, giving you endless options to personalize your tone.
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 plates.
All our fretboards are carefully pleked and finished by hand for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for. For the DLX, we chose a unique kind of fretboard inlays, called Diamond inlays. Additionally, the DLX features our Radiator Tremolo, the brother of our highly successful Diamond Deluxe Tremola.
The DLX is amongst our most desired instruments.
We would be happy to make yours.
