DUESENBERG STARPLAYER SPECIAL BLUESPARKLE
RIKO9564, 19.05.2011
La belle est arrivée un soir et c'est avec beaucoup d'excitation que j'ai ouvert le colis... et là c'est CADEAU ! Parce que d'emblée on est subjuguée par son look.
Certes, le look ne suffit pas mais là : ce bleu electrique pailleté est très réussi !
Puis viennent les choses plus sérieuses.

Et là encore c'est le grand bonheur : Prise en main parfaite, le poids la met en dessous d'une Les Paul et l'équilibre est sensationnel! Branchement dans mon combo Marshall DSL 401 et là c'est Wembley à la maison ! Les micros (deux doubles) sont vraiment à la hauteur et pour la rythmique c'est du lourd .

J'attends mon prochain concert pour sa 1ere sortie live et je sens que le look+le son vont faire quelques envieux !!

Je la recommande chaudement.

Merci DUESENBERG et Merci THOMMAN pour la livraison sans fautes comme d'habitude !!!

Musizieren kann wohl kaum schöner sein!
11.12.2015
Leider dauerte der Versand (untypisch für Thomann) etwas, was aber wohl eher an der Zulieferung lag, als am Versand durch Thomann...

Als die Post nun endlich kam, wurde die Gitarre ausgepackt und erst einmal bestaunt!
Sie sieht in Live noch viel! besser aus, als auf allen Bildern und Videos, die ich mir vorher angesehen habe!

Ein herrliches, dunkles Blau mit enormem Perleffekt!!!

Was ich sehr, sehr positiv finde, ist, dass die Gitarre schon ab Werk mit Aufnahmen für Security locks bestückt ist, was ich vorm Kauf leider nicht wusste und mir gleich welche mit bestellt hatte.
Das ist allerdings nicht schlimm, denn man hat ja nicht nur eine Klampfe ;-)

Der Sound der Gitarre ist ehrlich gesagt fast unbeschreiblich!
So einen schönen, sauberen und unverfälschten Clean-
Sound habe ich noch nicht gehört, doch so schön auch der Cleane Sound ist: Verzerrt ist er der Wahnsinn!

Durch den 3-Way Switch und den Multi Tone Poti lassen sich mehr als 9! verschiedene (Wirklich verschiedene!) Sounds einstellen und auch etwas miteinander mischen.
Von etwas dumpf und bassig, über herrlich ausgewogen, bis zu angehobenen höhen ist alles dabei und dies wahlweise für jede Einstellung am Switch!

Die Saitenlage ist spitze, super intoniert und schön flach, ohne auch nur ansatzweise irgendwo zu schnarren. Die Bünde sind aus verchromtem Edelstahl, wodurch Bendings enorm leicht von der Hand gehen.

Noch zu erwähnen dürfte sein, dass die Gitarren vor Versand nochmal mittels Plek- Service vermessen werden!
Finde ich großartig.

Mein Fazit:

+ Die Lackierung ist makellos, das Design Athemberaubend!

+ Der Klang ist voll und ausgewogen, kann über das Multi- Tone Poti getunt werden!

+ Die ab Werk angebrachten Security Locks


Wer also mit dieser Gitarre liebäugelt, macht ganz bestimmt nichts falsch!

Hut ab! =)

I'm extremely pleased with this guitar. I can't really compare it to any other guitars in the same price range, because the other guitars I own are all cheaper, but it hasn't disappointed me at all. I love the way it looks and sounds. I play mostly rhythm guitar, but it excels at leads too.
