A Beautiful Bastard

February 2014

Lee-Deimel

Berlin-based luthier extraordinaire Frank Deimel crosses Jazzmaster and non-reverse Firebird with a breeze of ‘60s Japanese styling thrown in to create his own FIRESTAR breed – a beautifuly and artistically crafted instrument designed and built with the limitless possibilities of noise rock in mind (yes, it is Mr. Lee Ranaldo himself proudly holding the one…). As usual – there’s some pics, specs and sounds below. [more →]

Cowboy got the Blues

August 2011

A whole other, rawer, grittier, warmer, swampier sound…

Rumblekat

The Epiphone Rumblekat feels more like a slender, small-bodied acoustic guitar with a massive set of cojones. The top and back are slightly arched (this one is an older Korean-made Custom Shop all-transluscent finish and kinda “aged” hardware model), and the semi hollow bodies vibrates with the music in a whole other way, and that feels different as you hold the instrument. Easy to fine-tune different sounds when plugged in, by blending the pickups. Much less forgiving of poor technique as your usual P-thing, but much more rewarding when played cleanly. It has helped a lot to build kinda slick and tight bottom on Steile Treppe recently.
