Just want to gauge what's people's preference in regards to the two humbucker pickups for Duesenberg guitars. I want to know what are the differences and which one suits which style best?

That's exactly the case - they also make a "little toaster" pickup that's very much like a filtertron type pickupJust from the names (knowing absolutely nothing about Duesenburg guitars) I would suspect the GV is a PAF-type, and the D-tron is a Gretschy/TV Jones thing.
I think you can get some pretty good ideas for uses from those two well known pickup types.
Hopefully someone with real experience will chime in shortly
I have a Little Toaster neck paired with a Supertron bridge.That's exactly the case - they also make a "little toaster" pickup that's very much like a filtertron type pickup
No, that's a different one. I've never tried the crunchbucker.Is that the "Crunchbucker" that you're refering to?
Cheers. I'm from Australia, and the guitars here ain't cheap either, especially the American made ones... I plan to import it from Germany as well. I initially wanted to get a Gretsch, since I wanted to have different a 2nd guitar to compliment my LP, at least something semi-hollowed with trem. But the TV came up and I've tried a few, and quite like the sound/build quality. I'm still leaning towards the D-Tron pickups now that I know its similar to Gretsch's tone (well at least in theory/design...).No, that's a different one. I've never tried the crunchbucker.
For what it's worth, I have a Starplayer TV with the standard pickups in it and use it in situations I would have used a Gretsch before - it's chimey enough to get there. It's a great complement to a darker sounding humbucker based guitar (I use a PRS, but a Les Paul is right up that alley).
You'll definitely get a lot of different tones out of it just because of the hollow body and the trem. Don't pay over $2k for it though - I got mine brand new from Germany with case for $1,800 (depends on the exchange rate).
