Starplayer III

The Starplayer III is a semi hollow, dual pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring flat top and back, bent sides and a 647mm scale.

Trailing the roots of the very first Starplayer guitar, the Starplayer III brings you the early Duesenberg design featuring a flat top and back combined with a classic rosewood veneer for the headstock. Still, the Starplayer III does not miss the proven wood combination of spruce for the top and flamed maple for the back and sides.

Even in the early days, we found that a combination of a balanced Humbucker for the bridge and a responsive P90 Singlecoil for the neck combines the best of both worlds. This is why we took our own classicly wound GrandVintage Humbucker and paired it with our open Domino P90 Singlecoil for airy chords and creamy licks.
