Artist Editions

For the development of the Deimel Firestar Artist Edition two things came together: First, as co-founders of the European Guitar Builders Association and co-organizers of the very first Holy Grail Guitar Show, we wanted to premiere something very special, something in our sense »holy«. Second, we both have an affinity to 60ies and 70ies designs. While Frank studied Industrial Design at »Hochschule der Künste Berlin«, Kora received her diploma of Visual Communications from the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg and a Master of Fine Arts New Genres of the San Francisco Art Institute. When we think and talk about guitar design, we try to express the spirit of our lives and what drives us to build guitars.

This first Deimel Firestar Artist Edition »Berlin« combines the colorful flatness of Koras paintings and drawings with Franks technical tweeks and spins. Berlin was 2014 our home base and the location of the first Holy Grail Guitar Show. Living in Berlin, we could feel the power and creativity of all artists and young people from all over the worlds coming together.

Kora made the entire visuals of this guitar based on ink drawings she made as starting point. She then vectorized all of them and made this beautiful collage that was spray painted by a local air brusher.

The second Deimel Firestar Artist »STOP THE WAR« combines Koras powerful drawings with Franks technical innovations. The drawings are applied to the guitar by Kora in a kind of napkin technique. That way the actual wood texture fits to the drawings very well.

All artist editions are equipped with a built in LesLee®.

Each Deimel Firestar Artist Edition is one of a kind, variations of themes are possible.
