What a great intense project! Our customer approached us a while ago with the idea of depicting the Portuguese journey to Macau. In close cooperation with the customer and with extended research, this one of a kind Deimel Firestar Artist Edition came out of it … an innovative instrument on the artistic as well as on the technical side.
Besides of the art work, our customer asked for 2 »signature« vintage sounds in the guitar: A 59 PAF neck and a 59 Tele bridge, guitars he admires the most. In order to adjust and play them together in one guitar, we installed a so called PTB circuit, a passive treble and bass circuit per pickup.
The PAF’s slug coil additionally can be faded out by a blender pot, to get unique in-between sounds of HB to SC. Combined with traditional wiring and historically correct caps the adjustable fine tuning is truly remarkable.
There are so many nuances between a little less treble on the bridge and a little less bass on the neck, that it becomes a lot of joy to tune your individual sweet spot with the amp you play.
The onboard @pickupleslee allowing for speed adjustable alternation of pickups makes for a great and timeless effect, adjustable right on the guitar!
With pulling the push/pull bridge volume pot, the guitar goes even stereo into 2 amps if desired!
So, this Deimel Firestar is definitely a very personal, versatile, one of a kind guitar.
