Duesenberg’s new Catalina finishes recall the golden era of rock ’n’ roll

These metallic coats debut on the Starplayer III model.

Duesenberg has unveiled new, retrolicious Catalina finishes for its Starplayer III model.

Both shades – of blue and red – have a metallic sheen that’s inspired by vintage automobiles, hot rods and classic rock.

Otherwise, the Starplayer III’s features remain unchanged. It boasts a semi-hollow construction and a pickup configuration identical to the Starplayer TV: a throaty Domino P-90 at the neck and a more classic-voiced GrandVintage humbucker at the bridge.

These appointments are complemented by a Diamond Deluxe Tremola, which is designed for enhanced tuning stability, and a steel-saddle bridge.
