It is a Deusenberg Starplayer TV. He's had it for 2 or 3 years now, and used it only on Thorn In My Side in 2010. During the Australian leg of the tour, he started using it more and more. Now (2011), he uses it on every song that he plays electric on. That includes, but is not limited to...

I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

Thorn In My Side
Runaway
Just Older

I Believe

The bolded songs are the only regulars. I personally like it better than his Tele. I love Telecasters, but I had gotten sick of Jon's Tele and it just didn't look as quality for wahtever reason to me.

I have always been loyal to Fender and Gibson when it comes to electric guitars. However, this guitar suites Jon well. It makes me want to get one.

Also, I think if Jon was playing a vintage tele, it would have more character and not look so squireish. His teles are always so standard and plain. Or hell, go with the 72 reissue.

I don't know if I'd call Just Older a regular. Certainly not on the same level as Sleep and Runaway.

It's a great guitar.

I have one just like it and when I posted the pics in a hot or not thread on a musicians forum I post on it's the first time that any guitar scored all hots from the posters.

They're OK, but I'm sick of them. I only really like the red one he used a bit back in 2004/05 here.


He should get drop the ESP's and pick up some Fenders and Gibsons again.
