Duesenberg Starplayer TV - Black Sparkle
Does it get any cooler than black sparkle? This Duesenberg Starplayer TV not only looks amazing, but plays and sounds and plays awesome too! The Grand Vintage humbucker and Domino P90 are a perfect combination, and give you a wide variety of tones. In the neck, it's clear with a nice fatness, and the bridge has plenty of bite but it never gets too thin. Imagine the perfect combination of a Gretsch, a 335, and a Les Paul and you get this guitar. Also, Duesenberg's proprietary tremolo system is one of the best out there - it's extremely smooth and won't knock the guitar out of tune! If you have any questions about this guitar, please feel free to reach out to us!

The Starplayer TV is a semi hollow, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring arched top and back, bent sides and a 647mm scale. The distinctive arched spruce top and elegant flamed maple arched back has elevated the TV to one of the finest guitars in the world. Even being such a versatile instrument, it always retains its discreet character and enriches every type or style of music with its distinct Duesenberg sound. It will remind you of the time when Rock & Roll was still young.
For the cutting leads and heavy riffs, we took our own classically wound GrandVintage Humbucker and paired it with our open Domino P90 for airy chords and creamy licks. The middle position of both pickups features a special wiring, which splits certain low end frequencies out of the humbucker signal, resulting in an open and extremely versatile addition to your pallet of sounds.
If you decide for the Starplayer TV+ variation, you get an additional Piezo Pickup which can be blended with the original signal from your magnetic pickups to achieve an even wider range of tone.
The Rebound charity edition sets you up with rhythm focused Duesenberg Little Toaster Pickups.
