So I've had this cool looking , almost new Starplayer TV offered in a deal. I'm totally un schooled in these guys, so any owners comments, opinions would be appreciated.
It'll cost me £1150.
Cheers guys.

Assuming you‘re aware of the “assembled in Germany” thing, my experience with Duesenbergs is that they look really cool, sound good, but they feel like other Made in Korea guitars, like Electromatic Gretsch and Reverend. I would not be surprised at all if the parts were made in the same factory. But the trem is a really good design and feels great. When I saw Petty right before he passed, Mike Campbell was playing one of his blue signature models and sounded great. But Mike Campbell always sounds great, no matter what he’s playing. The price is good, just be aware that the resale value on these is questionable.

Duesenberg and Reverend ARE made at the same facility in Korea.

In addition to the “assembled” in Germany point, also be aware the middle pickup position is out of phase and not typical of similarly configured guitars. I didn’t find it particularly useful.
