This very classy looking Firestar is made for beautiful Jazz/Rock tones plus its versatile use with its HB split options in connection with our built in piezo pickup.
It features the classic Tun-O-Matic/Stoptail piece bridge, which we have custom made by ABM in Berlin. The pickups are original Deimel types, a classic, hand wound plain enamel wire HB, made to vintage specs but with split function. The long scale maple Firestar neck makes the sound of a HB-equipped guitar more transparent, The light red alder body is a very euphonious basis for this kind of combination.
The circuit is customized towards 2 HB pickups. Therefore the switch section from left to right out of the playing position is the following: piezo (on/off), split neckHB, split bridge HB.
This guitar is custom made for you.
