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 shape. The Firestar has a 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 and true 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.

“The Firestar 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” (Frank Deimel)
