Description of the Duesenberg Starplayer TV Phonic from the Duesenberg website:

“The Duesenberg Starplayer TV Phonic Thinline Archtop Electric is a semi hollow, dual pickup, 22 fret electric thinline guitar, featuring arched top and flat back, bent sides, gold plated hardware and a 648mm (25.5 inch) scale.

With the Starplayer TV Phonic in an all-over bright Venetian White we are continuing our vision of truly independent hardware design. As the first model in our Starplayer TV line it features our new spectacular ‘Phonico’ pickup covers and the 4-way rotary pickup selector placed at the cutaway.

The Phonic comes with our celebrated set of a GrandVintage humbucker for the bridge and Domino P90 for the neck position. The new pickup selector allows you to choose between each pickup individually or two options of combining the two. The first option lets both pickups run freely without touching the frequencies, while the second option filters certain frequencies to give your tone a unique and even more defined character.”

All Duesenberg guitars equipped with a selection of very well designed and built Duesenberg hardware such as the very smooth Radiator Tremolo Bigsby-style unit, Steel Saddle Radius Bridge and effortless Z-Tuners for smooth and easy string changes and tuning.  The fretwork and setup are done partly with a PLEK machine for accuracy and consistency.  

These elegant, innovative instruments really stand out.   The design is well thought out and executed, and they play exceptionally well. 

The original Duesenberg hard-shell case is included.
