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.
