We are lucky to get this little beauty in store - a bass that sounds like basses used to sound back in the 60's. Rounded, full bottom end and looks to die for!
Here is what Duesenberg have to say on it...... The Starplayer Bass is a semi-hollow, dual pickup, 22 fret electric bass, featuring arched top and back, bent sides and a 770mm medium scale. It is available in a choice of different editions from opaque and transparent finishes, to our famous tolex covered Outlaw model and the Mike Campbell version.The Starplayer Bass was designed to complement the overall construction of our Starplayer TV model. Therefore, the Starplayer Bass is made from spruce for the arched top, flamed maple for the back and bent sides and American Hardrock Maple for the neck. The Starplayer Bass is fitted with two of our Duesenberg Bass Buckers which will give you clear and rich overtones and crisp response in any situation.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.
With the Starplayer Bass, the strings are anchored to a nickel-plated, solid and completely adjustable brass bridge, while, at the other end of the instrument, Duesenberg Z-tuners allow for quick string replacement and optimal tuning stability. All our fretboards are carefully pleked and finished by hand for optimum playability and the smooth feel they are famous for.
