The Starplayer TV Custom is a semi hollow, three pickup, 22 fret electric guitar, featuring arched top and back, bent sides and a 647mm scale. Building up on the original Starplayer TV design, the Custom features spruce for the top. The translucent blackburst finish on the back slightly shows the flamed maple back and harmonizes perfectly with the deep high-gloss black finish used on the entire instrument. Hardshell case is included!
The three pickup layout makes the Custom stand out amongst all other Starplayers. A robust and easy to use 3-way pickup switch allows you to select either bridge, neck or a combination of both pickups, while our Multi-Tone Pot lets you blend in the middle pickup in any desired position. While acting as a blend option, the Multi-Tone Pot also works as a regular tone control. Both functions are seperated by a middle stop in which the pot clicks in softly, waiting for you to decide what to do.
