Our Starplayer Special was first prototyped in 1992 and voted “Guitar of the Year” in UK in 2003. Our maple neck and rosewood fingerboard delivers a distinctive attack and clarity not usually associated with this body type.
The DSP with its Alder body comes with a 12mm/ 0.47” Canadian Maple top. These combinations present an exceptional sound and clarity that brings sweet thick tones and long sustain. A choice of opaque or sparkle colors impart a rich visual identity.
