Amphion AC-P - Acoustic / Electric, Hollow / semi-hollow body


Amphion AC-P is our full size hollow-body, single cutaway guitar, with classic lines that takes much inspiration from our archtop models.

It uses our Fremediti patented suspension tailpiece.  Our tailpiece is custom made out of titanium alloy and features 6 different density independent spring suspensions (one for each string), with parallel to the strings movement. This design is not in any contact with the guitar top, so it allows the top to vibrate freely and at the same time it offers a softer, more comfortable feel on the neck.

Premium grade tonewoods are used for the construction of Amphion AC-P , offering exceptional constancy in stability and tone. We carefully select and laminate the wood layers one by one, checking, through process, the tone characteristics of each top and back, achieving a balanced tone character.

It comes equipped with a handmade ebony piezo acoustic bridge and a pair of hand-wound VF-10 Jazz custom humbucker pickups.

The Fremediti acoustic /electric onboard control system allows the player to manage the unique amplified qualities of this polyvalent guitar.

    Features

    Handmade Laminated Plates

    We carefully select and laminate the wood layers for our tops and backs.

    We form their thickness and hardness accordingly, checking the tone characteristics of each top and back plate throughout the process, until we achieve a balanced tone character.

    Fremediti Titanium Tailpiece

    Our Fremediti tailpiece suspension is a patented original design that contributes to the playability of the guitar.

    On the tailpiece there is a suspension system which absorbs a small part of the string tension when we press the strings against the frets, resulting in a "lighter" feeling on the strings, especially on string bends. Further to that this, the tailpiece suspension mechanism does not have any contact with the soundboard, allowing it to vibrate and “breath” effortlessly, preserving this way the acoustic characteristics of the guitar.
    In addition this system absorbes a part of the structural stress, created from bending, preserving this way the structural integrity of the more delicate materials and construction used on an acoustic instrument.

    Our Fremediti tailpiece is machined from titanium alloy, providing added stability and reduced weight, while at the same time making the sound brighter and cleaner.

    Finally, an ebony cover with exotic top veneer, adds to the classic aesthetics of the guitar.

    Fremediti Piezo Bridge

    Height adjustable ebony bridge with a specially undersaddle 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 Acoustic/Electric System

    A system designed to manage the choice of acoustic or electric sounds as well as the unlimited possibilities of mixing them.

    Additionally, the system provides an acoustic pickup face selector, separate tone control for acoustic and electric sounds as well as a master volume control.

    VF-10 Jazz

    Our VF-10 jazz pickup set is a vintage-output humbucker that can stay clear even under distortion.

    Description
    Our VF-10 jazz is an incredibly versatile humbucker that can shine in almost any style of music.

    It features an alnico 5 bar magnet plus a special coil wind that give it a glassy treble response and full, tight bass, while it’s slightly scooped mids help each note to sing clearly even under high gain.

    It is wound in our Fremediti workshop VF-10 jazz uses a nickel bottom plate, 2-conductor shielded cable and it is wax potted for squeal-free performance.

    Wooden Binding and Purfling

    We wanted to offer an impeccable aesthetic appearance to our top of the line archtop and hollow-body models.

    Our Eumelia and Polymnia, as well as Amphion AC and Euphony AC, come with wooden bindings, multiply wooden purfling, multiply veneers and strips in every possible area.

    The same aesthetic detailed craft is applied also to the f-holes of the above models.
