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 one piece light swamp ash body, a one piece highly figured maple neck, we were searching 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.
Using our 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 pickups S90 neck + P90 bridge register and send out the signal in its most pure form, getting smoothed out by CTS pots and an ERO NOS 1831, 22nf 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!
This version also comes with our exclusive built in LesLee® feature that literally »rotate« the two pickups of the guitar. The feature is adjustable in speed. More info about LesLee®
