Duesenberg Starplayer Special – Red Sparkle
Contoured body made from Alder. Solid-Body constructions deliver instant response, a lot of attack and sustain and perfect feedback resistance. Alder is a versatile tone-wood known for its bright voice and versatility.
The Multi-Tone pot enables you to filter specific frequencies out of the pickup signal while also splitting the coils. It operates from a tactile middle stop position of the tone pot giving you both, a regular tone-blend and also a coil-tap.
A Plek processed fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our multi-step fret polishing and setup work all done by hand that eventually makes all our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.
THE MOST AFFORDABLE STARPLAYER YET
The Starplayer Special combines a variety of different approaches to form an instrument which is both high quality but also affordable. Its Alder body is contoured for premium looks and playability and then fitted with a bolt-on maple neck. This combination presents exceptional sound and clarity which brings sweet thick tones and long sustain. Our bolt on maple neck and rosewood fingerboard deliver a distinctive attack and clarity not usually associated with this body type.
The Starplayer Special delivers everything you need from a good instrument.
THE STARPLAYER SPECIAL BRINGS PREMIUM PICKUPS NO DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER DUESENBERGS.
The mounted GrandVintage pickup – in combination with the slightly higher output CrunchBucker – delivers penetrating and powerful rock sound. The Multi-Tone control extends the possibilities beyond that with endless blend options and singlecoil tones.
