This Firestar model features the classic Tune-O-Matic/Stoptail bridge which we have custom made by ABM in Berlin. The pickups are original Deimel types: a classic, hand wound plain enamel wire HB and our special Sweet90 single coils which suit so much better to a HB than any rod magnet single coils.
The circuit is customized towards 3 pickups. Therefore the switch section from left to right out of the playing position is the following: piezo (on/off), middle PU (on/off), split bridge HB!
Being a very versatile circuit with 10! regular sounds, plus additional piezo on all of them, makes up to 20 different sounds!
This guitar is custom made for you.
Building time is currently 12 months.
