Shifting the classic 60ies outlines of our regular Firestar guitar into 70ies modernism by using an elliptical and higly resistant acrylic glass pickguard, we call this guitar our favorite baby. Sporting a light swamp ash body and an one piece highly figured maple neck, we searched for more simplicity and pureness, both in design and materials. By reducing the ingredients to essential parts, the classic tone of a 50ies Blackguard and a 50ies Junior are mixed into our favorable new offset shape, the Firestar.
Depending on your budget and interest we offer a Tele half bridge as entry level. The Mastery Bridge M6 or M7 is a perfect match for the Deimel Firestar Ellipse Using our own Deimel Vibratone bridge inside a highly resonant swamp ash body guarantees maximum playing fun. The rigid one piece maple neck with our 10 degree angled headstock sends back the string energy to a fast responding, snappy joyful playing feel. Two hand wound Deimel P90ies (made with Plain Enamel 42 and sandcasted Alnico 5 magnets) register and send out the signal in its most pure form, getting smoothed out by CTS pots and a Mojotone PIO cap, as leaving the guitar by a tight switchcraft output jack.
The guitar comes in a very silky smooth matt finish. By using our metallic colors mixed partially into the clear matt it lets the swamp ash grain shine and feel through. Everything in this guitar is thought out to reduce the feeling to the max, making the playing and tonal experience even closer. Pure perfomance feel and fun, that’s what our Deimel Firestar Ellipse stands for!
The Deimel Firestar Ellipse is made of a Swamp Ash body and a one piece maple neck. The varnishing is metallic semi-transparent matt wish keeps the open grain of the wood texture very vivid. Our standard is a warm silver metallic, but we are open to any color suggestions!
Pickguard and backplates are hand cut out of frozen see through plastic. We have a variety of colors in stock and can advice what would fit best to the body color.
Inside the P90 covers we offer hand wound Deimel pickups. Just talk to us what pick up sounds you have in mind.
The bridge can be either a tele half bridge, a Mastery bridge M6/M7, or the Deimel vibratone w/ optional raw steel springs.
As extras we offer the built in LesLee® that is exclusively on Deimel guitars available.

Hybrid Version Deimel »Fireschneider«
The Deimel »Fireschneider« is a hybrid of the traditional Deimel Firestar and the Deimel Firestar Ellipse. The shape of the ellipse is not used as a pickgbuard but guards two sound chambers underneath that each can be filled individually with anything that produced the desired sound the player is looking for. The pickup shape is also P90 soapbox, but the bridge and tremolo are Mastery in this case. Making this guitar the ultimate sound machine, it is equipped with built in piezo in each sound chamber, a built in LesLee®, a kill switch, and a 3rd pickup behind bridge. Missing anything?
