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, a one piece 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.
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!
