By using a one piece naturally anodized aluminum pickguard on a »Saturn Lavender« Deimel Firestar in combination with black plastic parts, we cooled down the vintage look and went for a modern approach. This is something we like very much.
The guitar is equipped with another experimental feature, a tapped pickup. Both, neck and bridge pickup, are being tapped individually by slider switches. Approximately 80% of the power is on dial by the slider, and multiple combinations while mixing with our standard piezo body disc is on hand. That is easy and fun to play! Based on our regular red alder body and finest maple/rosewood neck, this has become one of Franks personal favorites.
This guitar is custom made for you.
