The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Duesenberg Starplayer Special Creme and Black, 2002


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Introduced in 2002, the Duesenberg Starplayer Special uses the classic bolt-on design, with a full 25.5 inch scale maple neck on and alder body with humbucking pickups. The neck sports an Indian Rosewood fingerboard,  with Mother of Pearl dot inlays.  It is a straightforward guitar, delivering exactly what it advertises.

This early Duesenberg Starplayer Special, built during 2002 – the first year of production – is in very clean, all original condition. It plays very well and has just the slightest wear, even to the frets. The original Duesenberg hard shell case is included.

Here’s what Duesenberg says about the Starplayer Special:

“The Duesenberg Starplayer is a solid body, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring a contoured alder body, bolt-on neck and a 647mm scale.

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 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 several additional singlecoil-like sound options.

All our instruments are fitted with our own hardware, which you will only find on a Duesenberg. We design it with attention to even the smallest details to create truly unique instruments from tuner buttons to jack plates. And with the Starplayer Special, you get the same high quality hardware as on all our other instruments.

All our fretboards are carefully plecked and finished by hand for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for. “
