From Duesenberg –
“Our semi-hollow deluxe guitar is played by many of the top players in the world. The Starplayer-TV features a greatly improved 60s style tremolo and a floating bridge with steel saddles. Our custom-wound DP90 in the neck position gives an authentic blues tone making a versatile combination with the vintage Humbucker in the bridge position. The distinctive arched spruce top and elegant flamed maple arched back has elevated the Starplayer TV to one of the finest guitars in the world.”
The Starplayer TV is Duesenberg’s bestselling guitar. It has a punchy, robust sound, and its retro lines combined with easy playability make the Starplayer a very versatile instrument.

With the Outlaw, Duesenberg has taken their Starplayer TV into the world of extreme by adding a whole new look to their deluxe semi-hollow body guitar. They’ve given the DTV a black leather Alligator Tolex covering that gives a new meaning to the words “Bad to the Bone.”
The Outlaw’s feel and tone is all Duesenberg, but with a style that says “look at me!” This is the model played by Keith Richards and is featured in the Rolling Stones Gear book.
This is a beautifully built guitar, with looks to match. Since its beginnings in the mid 80s, Duesenberg has become a brand synonymous with quality. They build fabulous looking guitars that you can actually play.
And this one plays really well, with a comfortable neck and excellent setup, it feels strong & balanced.
There’s tons of tone and the pickups are perfectly suited to the semi hollow body construction. The proprietary Bigsby style trem stays in tune, and offers other tonal options.
This guitar is nearly ten years old but presents in as-new condition. There are no marks, scratches, dings or dents anywhere. The metalwork is clean and untarnished. This guitar has been well looked after, and has not seen much work. Which is a shame because it screaming out to be played, and seen. The black alligator tolex is a killer finish – a unique, sexy and stunning look.
