Lospennato / TV-Star / 2012 / Black Hi-gloss / Guitar For Sale
The TV-Star "Steampunk" is a one-of-a-kind, boutique instrument with a decimononic flavour.
The pickguard and the truss rod cover have been handmade with real, old cogs and clockwork parts: a Steampunk character for a modern instrument.
Combining golden and chromed parts to accentuate its "old machinery" effect, the TV-Star is a Telly-inspired: single cut, vintage spirit, but with a more dynamic body shape. As all my instruments, this guitar is a handmade, unique instrument.
Body: Certified Mahogany
Neck: flamed maple
Fretboard: flamed maple, stainless steel frets, mother-of-pearl dot inlays
It is equipped with two Seymour Duncan™ Phat Cat pickups, a P90-style, single coil pickup in humbucker size.
Controls: Master volume, master tone, 3-way selector switch.
The electronics are passive, but it has also an on-board distortion 5-way selector (from a light, jazz-bluesy distortion, to a heavy-metal distortion).
Bridge: Schaller, adjustable 3D.
Tuners: Gotoh 510; relation 18:1.

How long does it take to build my guitar or bass?
Unless you fall in love with an instrument that is available, the current waiting time is 3-4 months. This is strongly influenced by the finishing method of your choice: our professional polyester finishing process alone takes up 30-45 days. A natural, oil finishing would strongly shorten the waiting time.
How can I order my new bass or guitar?
Just tell me what's on your mind. Which model do you like? What kind of sound are you looking for? Just write me an email, or call me!
When and how do I pay for my new axe?
You can use practically any kind of payment:
- Bank transfer (is the most secure, and free of banking charges within Europe).
- PayPal, which fees are of course not charged on the customer.
- Please note that I do not take payments via "wire transfer" (Western Union, MoneyGram, etc).
A 50% up-front payment is required to begin the construction of your new instrument. The rest will be paid upon completion, right before shipping.
Is there a warranty policy?
My instruments are guaranteed against all construction defects. Damages resulting from improper use are not covered. Until now, I have never had a customer sending me an instrument back.
Where are these instruments made? By whom?
I made all the instruments myself, one by one. My small (but sexy) workshop is located in Berlin, Germany. You can arrange a visit, just let me konw when are you coming by. There is always a cold Coke in the fridge and hot coffee in the pot. (More about me? Check out my bio).
Also, as my customer, you are an active part of the design. You can choose:
Painting method and design
Type of electronics (active or passive)
Profile of the neck
Type of tuners you like
Shape of the headstock and body (yes, you read it correctly).
Number of frets
Color of frets (silver or gold)
Size of the fretwire (jumbo, standard, etc)
Color the hardware (chrome, gold, or black).
Inlay: dots, ellipses, stars, sharkteeth... mother of pearl, vinyl, abalone... etc etc.
Does that seems too much? Don´t worry, we will work the options out together to define the guitar of your dreams.
Do you have more questions?
Your inquiry is always welcome!
