SEMI-HOLLOW

PLEK PROCESSED

A Plek processed fretboard guarantees perfectly level frets. This is the basis for our fret polishing and setup work that eventually makes all our instruments play like nothing you have ever played before.


FLAT TOP AND BACK

THE STARPLAYER III REVIVES THE ORIGINAL STARPLAYER DESIGN.

Its construction is based on the Starplayer TV design but features flat top and back for reduced body volume and improved handling on stage. It comes fitted with our award-winning and versatile pickup combination comprising of the classically voiced GrandVintage humbucker and the thick and creamy Domino P90.

DIAMOND DELUXE TREMOLA

MEET THE VIBRATO SYSTEM THAT HAS CHANGED THE IDEA OF WHAT A CLASSIC DESIGN CAN DO.

Buttery smooth action, reliable tuning stability and string changes that are a breeze are just the main aspects of our unique vibrato design.

The Diamond Deluxe gives you the best tone while being lightweight. 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.

Proven daily on the stages of this world.

COLORFUL

The Starplayer III comes in three elegant colors. A classic all over black and the two metallic finishes Catalina Blue and Catalina Red. All feature our deluxe 5-ply cream binding and a transparent burst on the back that shows the flamed maple shimmer through the finish.

THE DREAM TEAM

DUESENBERG PICKUPS ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR DISTINCT, CLEAR AND VERSATILE TONE THAT EASILY CUTS THROUGH THE MIX FROM MELLOW JAZZ TO SUPERCHARGED ROCK.

Our creamy Domino P90 in the neck position and the classically voiced GrandVintage Humbucker at the bridge form an all-around dream team many have tried to replicate.
The acclaimed middle position of the heavy duty 3-way switch features a special wiring that filters certain low-end frequencies out of the humbucker signal. The result is an open, funky and extremely versatile addition to your pallet of tone.

WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT GERMAN SILVER

The quality of the components in a pickup is vital when it comes to delivering the best tone possible right from the start. You cannot get back what is lost here. That is why we use a special material called German Silver for the baseplate and cover. It's the only material that does not have a negative effect on frequencies transmitted by the pickup.

We also use a very specific insulated wire that we get from an old German copper wire factory. The coil is wound slowly, simulating a hand winding to give the pickup all the natural imperfections that make it sound great. The result is an extremely wide and defined frequency output that doesn't limit you or what you want to do.

PLEKED FRETBOARD

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 our professional luthiers. The luthier responsible also leaves his or her signature inside the instrument.

This all is our promise to you that a Duesenberg instrument will always feel great in your hands.

NICKEL HARDWARE

MOST OF OUR HARDWARE IS NICKEL FINISHED.

You will find the geometrical three steps in almost every part on our instruments, from the curves on the headstock to the shape of the output jack.

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.

MADE TO HOLD SOMETHING THAT LASTS

A GOOD CASE IS ONE THAT'S MORE STURDY THAN WHAT'S INSIDE.

Handsome, laid-back and simply a good place for your instrument. Meet the Duesenberg Custom Line Cases. True flightcase quality, classically shaped, beautifully handcrafted and made to endure the most realistic and unrealistic abuses. It's a case you can just throw in the back of a car, train or airplane and won't have to worry about.

This instrument comes including the Duesenberg Custom Line Case as standard.
