In 1995 the world was introduced to the original Duesenberg Starplayer guitar and over the years this iconic model has developed into one of the most impactful new lines within the music industry.
In 2020 Duesenberg released special 25th Anniversary Starplayer - one in Gold Leaf (now discontinued) and one in Silver - that has been extended until June 2021.
We have been impressed by their attention to detail, playability and sound.
Today the Starplayer TV spends countless hours in studios and stages around the world, with legends like Mike Campbell, Joe Walsh, Ron Wood, John Mayer, Bob Dylan, Johnny Depp, Chris Cornell, Dave Stewart and many others placing the Duesenberg Starplayer TV into the history books.
This special edition of the Starplayer TV comes in a stunning Metallic Silver on the top of the instrument. It keeps everything that made the original Starplayer famous but this time we have taken it a step further.
The Duesenberg Split/King Dual-Coil Pickups open up entirely new possibilities for your tone. The innovative coil concept makes both tonal worlds, singlecoil and humbucker, available by the flick of a switch.
The Split/King Dual-Coil does not simply split a full-size humbucker to create a singlecoil. Instead, it starts with a real singlecoil pickup and adds a certain type of coil to make it also sound like a humbucker. This is a completely new approach to creating both tonal worlds in a single pickup.
