Deimel Firestar, Aged Desert Dawn
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, called the Firestar.
Evolving from classic, historic guitar designs, the Firestar has a "good to reach" 21-fret bolt on neck, seated into a newly developed body design. The slight offset body with tight hips and long belly balances just perfect in almost any playing position. The use of a reversed, slightly angled headstock is intentional. Deimel are convinced that an extended portion on the lower strings adds significant overtones to the flavor of the Firestar tone. It also allows for easy-to-bend trebles, and tighter-sounding bottom strings. Various tone controls, which are comfortably placed around the moves of the stroking hand, are in easy-to-reach areas. A Mastery bridge and vibrato guarantee the smooth and in-tune handling of vibrato sounds. For more information, check out Deimel's extensive page.
