We sat down with German luthier Frank Deimel from Deimel Guitars to have a chat around a few of the guitars brought to Holy Grail Guitar Show 2016.
On this clip Frank shows us 2 variations of their Firestar model. The Firestar model is a crossover between a Jazzmaster, Jaguar and Non reverse Firebird and is their interpretation of a new offset style guitar.
In January 2014 we had the pleasure of shooting 2 performances with Rocco DeLuca at the house/studio of Daniel Lanois in Los Angeles, exclusively for VintageandRare.com
On the first video Rocco is performing his song “Through Fire”. On the 2nd video Rocco performs “Congregate”. Both songs are from Rocco´s forthcoming album.
Both performances was done on a very unique baritone lap steel (Rocco Deluca prototype) built by CA based masterluthier and V&R partner, Pavel Maslowiec aka Pavel Guitars.
