• Polymnia - Electric / Acoustic Archtop


    Polymnia is the top of the line, electric archtop guitar in our range, featuring a traditional pickup configuration.

    It uses an x-bracing support for the soundboard as well as our Fremediti patented suspension tailpiece system that offers an exceptional comfort in playing, not so common in archtop guitars.

    Handcrafted with premium grade solid European tonewoods, Polymnia has an extraordinary acoustic voice and at the same time shows some unique amplified qualities, that can cover the complete range of the jazz territory and beyond.

    It comes equipped with a handmade ebony piezo acoustic bridge, and a pair of R-34S Fremediti custom wound pickups. An onboard system is used for the control of the acoustic and electric sounds.

  • Fremediti Piezo Bridge

    Height adjustable ebony bridge with a specially embodied Fishman acoustic piezo pickup and 1/8” width ebony saddle.

    The 1/8”ebony saddle width allows the achievement of a perfect intonation by giving the exact shape at the point of each string.

    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 R-34S

    The R-34S pickup set is a vintage-output humbucker that can stay clear even under distortion.

    Description
    R-34S is an incredibly versatile humbucker that can shine in almost any style of music. It futures an alnico 5 bar magnet plus a special coil wind that give it a glassy treble response and full, tight bass, while it’s scooped mids help each note to sing clearly even under high gain. Hand wound in our Fremediti workshop R-34S uses a nickel silver bottom plate, 2-conductor shielded cable and is wax potted for squeal-free performance.
