If ever there was a guitar designed for Darth Vader and Clint Eastwood, this is THE guitar. I just could not help myself with this one. I’ve always had a “secret” love affair with Gretsch guitars but have always been weary of taking the plunge on a guitar that I wouldn’t use that often, never mind carving up the top to fit a PAF style humbucker. Enter the Starplayer TV Outlaw. Our Dusenberg rep Mike Gregory had me at the faux Alligator hide finish. (Insert long sigh here_____________). What can I say that hasn’t been thought or said? Stunning looks aside; the guitar truly is a marvel of tone with its humbucker/ P90 configuration. Sporting a hollow body construction with a sustain block, this guitar is right at home with Rockabilly and Hard Rock. The fretwork, courtesy of PLEK, makes this guitar a dream to play. The addition of a Bigsby style tremolo unit adds even more mojo to this beauty. The fact that it works flawlessly makes it even more of a marvel. I’m asked on a daily basis…”Mike, which guitar is your favorite guitar in the store right now”. Without one shred of doubt, it would have to unequivocally be this guitar.
