The Deimel Firestar has been built as a new classic tool for creative and modern guitar music. A lot of people nowadays like the so-called »offset waist guitars« for their beautiful and ergonomic shape. As there are only a few well known designs Frank Deimel has developed his own offset waist body shape.
The Firestar has a »good to reach« 21 fret neck and various sound controls, which are comfortably placed around the moves of the stroking hand. A Mastery bridge and a Duesenberg®Tremola guarantee the smooth and »in tune« handling of vibrato sounds. The choice of pickups is based on a concept that evolved in collaboration with pickup manufacturer Curtis Novak. He offers a wide range of different pickups all hidden under a JM-pickup cover. Even if you choose your preferred pickup construction, the »look« of the guitar won‘t change.
More circuit extravaganzas are available in the lower miniswitch section: A built-in piezo pickup (the contact disc is glued on the wood), a serial/parallel switch for both pickups, and a »surf« switch, which lets you play with a bass cut sound. Every sound can be recom- bined with itself, piezo, serial controls or surf switch. Also each sound can be blended with volume and tone. In addition, you find a great range of playing areas on the 6-string sections behind bridge and saddle to create springy overtones.

»This all adds up to a great field for new experimental sounds to create your very own stellar guitar voice.«

Firestar models

The process of handcraft as well as the wishes of our customers are very important for us. Therefore we decided to offer two different standards:
The regular Firestar comes with all quality features of all our hand-crafted guitars: well chosen components, a perfect finish, and the same assembly as in our custom line. The only difference is a limitation of choices.
The Firestar »Deluxe« starts as a typical custom layout, where we suggest various features and parts with numberless combinations on request. Any color and personal pickup configuration can be realized. You choose your neck profile, fret wire, neck radiuses, etc.. Whatever you like, we are looking forward to realize an individual Firestar guitar for you. Except for the body, pickguard, and headstock shape and the logo placement, you are free to develop your own model
