We shifted the classic 60ies outlines of our regular Firestar guitar into 70ies modernism by using an elliptical »Champagne« anodized pickguard.
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 classic Deimel 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 P90 neck + 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 metallic open grain matte 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!
