For a long time, a bass instrument’s “cool factor” didn’t much matter. More important was the sound, which had to be just right and, if the one playing the bass was cool, then that was good enough. The Starplayer Bass now proves, however, that a low-tone instrument can have, in addition to great sound, an extremely cool look as well! This semi-acoustic bass, with its classic guitarmaking craftsmanship, arched top, arched bottom and bent sides, speaks to Duesenberg’s philosophy: to take the best design elements from the golden era of guitar-making and combine them with the most modern, functional equipment features of today for example, Z-Tuners, a fully adjustable saddle, precisely placed bass humbucker, and much more (see technical specifications!).

It’s no wonder that the creme de la creme of international bassists are only too happy to take the stage with this bass, which despite its medium scale (77.5 cm) lays down an extraordinary foundation, while simultaneously providing rich overtones. This bass both sings and swings and it’s a true joy to play!

The Duesenberg Starplayer bass ships with Duesenberg BSRS1 strings (nickel roundwound steel, medium scale: 050 – 070 – 085 – 110).

Starting on 2 January 2017, you will receive a certificate of origin from us with every purchase to document the fact that the palisander or bubinga wood used in your instrument comes from legal harvesting and trade.
Please take notice that the German customs authorities need up to 14 business-days to prepare all necessary export documents for us. This will delay the total shipping time.

The reason is the following:
At the World Wildlife Conference in Johannesburg in September 2016, all palisander and bubinga species were added to the so-called CITES Appendix II. The inclusion in CITES II means that starting on 2 January 2017 trade with these wood species will not be prohibited entirely but will be subject to restrictions. This will involve a lot of additional bookkeeping for producers, wholesalers, retailers, and guitar makers, but not for you.

What do the new trade restrictions mean for musicians and owners of instruments?

No additional verification documents are necessary for ownership as such.

Travel inside the EU:

No special precautions are necessary for travel inside the EU.

Travel to non-EU countries:

Instruments made of the wood species in question may be taken to non-EU countries without verification documents as long as the weight of the wood protected by CITES II in all musical instruments together is less than 10 KG. The weight of transport containers and accessories is not included.

Resale:
A verification document is recommended for resale. As a rule, this is the commercial invoice (which you receive from us) or a certificate confirming that the instrument was made using legal CITES II wood. If you do not have such documentation, the customs officials or the competent regional authorities may confiscate the products if they are being offered for private sale. If you have kept your invoices for instruments purchased before 2 January 2017 or can provide other clear evidence (e.g., inventory in your tax return, import documents...) that the instruments were purchased before 2 January 2017, you should keep these documents in a safe place and leave a copy with the instruments. No further measures are necessary for the time being.
