Starplayer TV Custom

The theme of Black & Gold in guitar history seemed to be occupied forever, just like the name Black Beauty ... but in 2012, the Starplayer TV Custom moved into the center of attention everywhere in guitar world and ensured amazed eyes.

The deep black finish is indeed a magnificent presentation area for the gold hardware, and the lush pickup configuration of three Duesenberg D-Tron humbuckers extends the Duesenberg soundscapes to an exciting new level. Instead of the rather inflexible circuit of other guitars with three humbuckers the TV sports the Duesenberg Custom Multi-Tone potentiometer that dials in the middle D-Tron on request, which makes a wide array of six different sounds. These sounds cover the whole spectrum from Clean to Crunch to Rock - but always with a certain charm and chime, as never has been heard before.

The German magazine Gitarre & Bass wrote in its issue 10/2012: "In addition to its rich voice and dynamics, its broad range of sounds, the best workmanship and the equally noble and elegant appearance, the Starplayer TV Custom features a simple but ingenious circuitry and the the Duesenberg Diamond Deluxe Tremola. All these many smart technical solutions and the tasteful design details are thrilling and fascinating. In short, a fantastic guitar .... "
