A modernized way of the classic Firestar, this beauty features a very light and resonant Abachi body in silver space nitro with a three piece pickguard. After researching JM-type pickups, we found Joe Barden Two-Tones being a very suitable set, as they offer their famous tapped output tone, meaning tapping on both HB coils in the same time, resulting in a brighter, still noise-cancelling tone! Tones range from Jazz/Rock/Blues to finer notes of Jazzmaster on tapped version. With piezo, this guitar can be experimental too!
The routing on the switch section seen from playing position from left to right: piezo (on/off), tap on neck coils, tap on bridge coils.
This guitar is custom made for you.
Building time is currently 12 months.
