This Deimel Firestar comes with a mahogany body! We repeated the Lee Ranaldo 12 string custom guitar finish, transparent green on mahogany. This is a beautiful combination of real tortoise celluloid, chrome/steel hardware, and dark rosewood. This particular one went to France to the singer and guitar player Richard Baron, member of Joyliner, France. He decided for a Novak JM-WR in the bridge, and a JM-V in the neck. A very nice combination, as the JM-WR can be routed in serial/parallel by itself. Mahogany bodies are more smooth in midrange, and give an even more focused rhythm sound compared to our standard red alder. Whoever looks for a more compact, rocking, straight sound, this combination is recommended.
This guitar is custom made for you.
