The Starplayer TV DLX builds on everything that makes Duesenberg’s original line of Starplayer TV guitars great. A semi-hollow, yet robust and roadworthy construction delivering outstanding tone, incredibly good pickups and Duesenberg’s renowned Radiator Vibrato unit - just to name a few.
On top of that, Duesenberg have added double bound F-Holes, Diamond fretboard inlays, a floating transparent pickguard, a new pickup for the neck position and an ingenious way to customize your tone via the Vario-Tone controls located by the pickup switch.
The Starplayer TV DLX is a semi-hollow instrument featuring a solid centerblock, double F-Holes, arched top and flat back. Semi-hollow guitars deliver a unique and open response suitable for any genre.
D-TRON & GRAND VINTAGE HUMBUCKERS
Two humbucking Pickups. The D-Tron in the neck position and GrandVintage at the bridge are a perfectly fine tuned team that delivers a new nuance to the pallet of tone in the line of Starplayer TV guitars.
The Vario-Tone controls work as a regular tone blend, but also as a mid-frequency filter for each pickup. This allows cutting mid-range frequencies in your signal and offers endless options to customize your tone.
The Starplayer TV DLX is fitted with Duesenberg’s custom D-Tron pickup in the neck postion. This pickup delivers a distinctly transparent and sparkly tone usually not found in the neck position. It is joined by Duesenberg’s jack-of-all-trades GrandVintage humbucker in the bridge position giving you a balanced, classically voiced humbucker tone that leaves nothing to be desired.
Both pickups can be fine-tuned with the Vario-Tone controls. These allow you to filter mid-frequencies out of each humbuckers' signal while also performing a nuanced coil-split. A noticeable middle-stop in the pots travel seperates the Vario-Tone control from the regular tone-blend.
THE DUESENBERG RADIATOR TREMOLA IS THE EVOLUTION OF OUR OWN VIBRATO SYSTEM DESIGN.
It keeps everything that you love about about Duesenberg’s original Diamond Deluxe Vibrato and delivers it in a new and exciting design.
Buttery smooth action, reliable tuning stability and string changes that are a breeze are just the main aspects of our unique vibrato design. Heavy duty needle and nylon bearings give you the highly responsive Duesenberg feel when using the vibrato arm. The arm itself can be turned freely for 360° and can be adjusted to your preferred angle and length. The strings are simply guided through the holes in the bar underneath the arm-axis and can be lead to the tuners without any hassle.
The fretboard is to your music, what the handle of a brush is to a painting. It says a lot about an instrument how much care was taken here.
Every single Duesenberg instrument is expertly pleked for buzz-free playability all throughout the fretboard. It is then carefully finished by hand and precisely set up by one of their professional luthiers. The luthier responsible also leaves his or her signature inside the instrument.
This all is Duesenberg’s promise to you that a Duesenberg instrument will always feel great in your hands.
Duesenberg Z-Tuners are specifically made to give you a super smooth and precise feel when tuning. They also allow you to elegantly hide the end of the cut-off string inside the tuner shaft so it's not damaging your case, gigbag or fingertips. Maintenance-free life - guaranteed.
You will find the geometrical three steps in almost every part on Duesenberg’s instruments, from the curves on the headstock to the shape of the output jack.
Most of Duesenberg’s hardware is Nickel finished. When compared to regular Chrome finishes, Nickel has a beautiful warm and elegant sheen and ages naturally over time. It's the way things were done before Chrome became the standard. If you don't want the hardware on your instrument to age, we recommend regular cleaning.
