• Eumelia - Acoustic Archtop


    Eumelia stands out in our archtop line as the most traditional model.
    It’s premium select solid European tonewoods, strictly detailed hand craftsmanship and beautiful earthy colors, gives to Eumelia a contemporary, classy look and feel.

    The handmade traditional construction, with the addition of some modern crafting elements, allow Eumelia to shine with its unique warm and musical acoustic tone, while excelling in terms of connectivity.
    Eumelia is extremely comfortable to play, as it comes equipped with our Fremediti patented suspension tailpiece.

    A piezo acoustic handmade ebony bridge and a F-12N Fremedidi custom floating humbucker, provide an extended tone variety.

    To get the maximum of  Eumelia’s capabilities, we designed and developed in house, the "Eumelia control pedal", an external management system for the acoustic and the amplified sounds of the guitar, that offers unlimited potential in sound shaping.

  • Fremediti Eumelia Pedal

    Fremediti Eumelia Pedal

    Eumelia is the top of the line acoustic guitar in our archtop line. In order to preserve its unique acoustic characteristics, we had to come up with a solution, for the control of the acoustic and the electric pickups, without placing any parts on the soundboard. So we created an of board control pedal housed in an elegant custom alloy box.

    This control pedal allows the switching or blending between the acoustic piezo and the electric pickup as well as the use of the active or passive eq, making it an ideal companion to Eumelia. 

    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 F-12N

    A low profile, naturally voiced, humbucking pickup for acoustic archtop guitars with steel or bronze strings.

    Description
    A pickup designed for the true acoustic archtop purist with no routed pickup into the guitars top. This pickup is naturally-voiced, allowing the balance, warmth and richness of a fine archtop to present its true acoustic tone. It is mounted to the fingerrest without touching the top of the guitar. Hand wound in our Fremediti workshop the F-12N uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, 2-conductor shielded cable and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
