  • Fremediti Titanium Tailpiece

    The Fremediti tailpiece suspension is a patented tailpiece, with or without a tremolo option, that contributes to the playability of the guitar by suspending each string in parallel to the soundboard and without any contact with it. This way the soundboard can vibrate and “breath” effortless protecting the acoustic characteristics of the guitar.

    The tailpiece is machined from titanium alloy and provides added stability and reduced weight.

    An ebony/exotic wooden decorative cover preserves the classic aesthetics of the guitar.

    Fremediti I-65S

    Fremediti I-65S

    A special P.A.F. hand wound design that gives fatter bridge tone, with more midrange harmonics.

    Description
    A  sonically unique humbucker set that pushes your amp and adds a very slight natural compression and sustain to your sound. Perfect for raw overdriven rock sounds. This hand wound Fremediti I-65S humbucker set uses a rough cast alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate and single conductor braided lead wire.

    Fremediti E-52S

    Fremediti E-52S

    Vintage-voiced, extremely versatile pickup set.

    Description
    The E-52S model pickup set is our champion of versatility. It’s caries the spirit of the original P.A.F. humbuckers of the 1950s, with sweet sustain, full-sounding chords, clear and bright attack. With some modifications and few refinements to the original, we achieved a slightly modernized design that make it a more adaptable pickup to different styles. Hand wound in our Fremediti workshop E-52S uses a nickel silver bottom plate, 2-conductor shielded cable and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
