25th Anniversary

25th Anniversary



In 1995 the world was introduced to the original Duesenberg Starplayer guitar.

Over the years this iconic model has developed into one of the most impactful new lines within the music industry.

Today the Starplayer TV spends countless hours in studios and stages around the world, with legends like Mike Campbell, Joe Walsh, Ron Wood, John Mayer, Bob Dylan, Johnny Depp, Chris Cornell, Dave Stewart and many others placing the Duesenberg Starplayer TV into the history books.




Gold Leaf, Silver Leaf and Silver Plated Hardware

In celebration of this historic milestone, we are releasing two very significant versions of the Starplayer TV. In the Collector’s Series, the 25th Anniversary Limited Edition, is finished in a striking Gold Leaf and Silver Leaf accents on the sides and neck as well as on the inside of the guitar. All topped off with elegant silver plated hardware.
This Limited 25th Edition is exclusive to just 25 pieces worldwide.



Additionally, we are presenting another special version of the 25th Anniversary Starplayer TV in a stunning Anniversary Metallic Silver. This will come with our newly released Split-King Duo-Coil Pickups, which are uniquely constructed to deliver both a Singlecoil and vintage Humbucker tone for even greater flexibility on stage. The setting for both pickups can be controlled from two height-adjustable switches located on the pickguard.

This collectible will only be available during 2020.



Alliance Series Sascha Paeth


Continuing our tradition of Artist Alliances we have teamed up with legendary Heavy Metal & Hard Rock artist and producer Sascha Paeth to create a unique instrument specially designed for high-speed/high-gain use. Sascha's work as a producer of countless Heavy Albums in the past decades and his role as the lead guitarist for Avantasia had a profound influence on this project.

The Alliance Series Sascha Paeth is a solidbody construction made from Ayous featuring improved "SuperFly" access to the upper frets of the one-piece hardrock maple neck. It is fitted with our Chrunchbucker Humbucker in the bridge position - a choice easily made by Sascha being an experienced user of our Starplayer Special model. In contrast, the Domino P90 in the neck position delivers creamy response and cleans up nicely if needed.


Further details on this guitar are the Diamond Deluxe Tremola that Sascha puts to brutal use on all of his creations, a Kill-Switch located for easy right hand access, a discrete Thumb-Wheel Neck Volume Preset Control for quick clean pickup tones when switching and an exclusive faux Snake Skin finish, both available in Red or Black.
