Duesenberg Starplayer TV Phonic – Venetian White

Serial Number: 220178
Weight: 7 lbs 14 oz

The best, now better.

The Starplayer TV DLX builds on everything that makes our original line of Starplayer TV guitars great. A semi-hollow, yet robust and roadworthy construction delivering outstanding tone, incredibly good pickups and our renowned Radiator Vibrato unit – just to name a few.

On top of that, we 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 fitted with our 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 our 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.


It keeps everything that you love about about our 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.
