Malcolm Young’s Duesenberg Starplayer TV (Gold Leaf)

Malcolm was seen playing a gold-colored Duesenberg Straplayer guitar when he and Angus joined the Rolling Stones on stage in 2003, to play “Rock Me, Baby”.

Based on the looks, the guitar is likely a custom model, since it has a gold leaf finish, similar to the one that Duesenberg used on their 25th Anniversary Starplayer TV model. That model was released in 2020, so this must have been a custom guitar, perhaps even made for someone in the Rolling Stones, and Malcolm only borrowed it for that one ocassion.
