A recent favorite of ours: this Firestar has TONE! Based on the regular Firestar with the three piece pickguard and the Deimel Custom Mastery MV vibrato, it was a customers wish to mix the fat neck tone of a Lollar CC neck pickup with the wide range reissue by Lollar, called »Regal«. The output can be perfectly controlled by selecting either the parallel mode on the bridge pickup or the surf switch, which takes out boomy bass frequencies.
The sound of the guitar got described as very assertive in the mix with a band!
The routing of the switch section from left to right out of the playing position is the following: piezo (on/off), serial/parallel on bridge pickup, surf switch.
This guitar is custom made for you.
