Bass of the Deimel Firestar Artist Edition Twin Set »GAME CHANGER«
This is the first time we did a collaboration work with Grit Laskin with whom we gravitated to the idea of exploring similar themes across both an acoustic and a solid-body electric guitar, as well as on each side of the Atlantic.
This is also the first time that we built an artist edition twin set consisting of a Deimel Firestar guitar and bass. The Deimel Firestar Artist Edition »GAME CHANGER« is a tribute to all kids that have fought and are currently fighting for their ideas and rights around the globe. Greta Thunberg might be the most famous one of our times, but there have been many, many more, just naming a few on the side of the guitar, that influenced the story of all our lives. Taking on this energy both, guitar and bass, come with a built in LesLee and powerful hand wound pickups. The manifold sounds build into both instruments also reflect the broad range of the voices of the brave!
I make all drawings on paper first and built a big collage that I transfer with a napkin technique onto the prepared woods. A natural matte finish preserves the art work.
When Grit asked us if I would be interested in a collaboration, we felt very honored. Grits work has inspired us for years. His approach to political and society relevant themes is unique in the guitar world.
Though Grits and our lives are on different sides of the globe, we are part of one big family and it is on us to keep an eye on it.
