Arion - Electric Solid Body


Arion takes elements from the classic solid body single cut design, known and loved for the great rock and bluesy sounds that sculptured the music of the last decades.

As in all our guitars we follow the path of traditional hand craftsmanship with no cnc machines involved in any step of the process.

To achieve the unique feel and tone of this beloved design we use premium grade tonewoods as well as top quality parts and materials.
We carefully select the woods and parts, checking, throughout the process the tone characteristics in order to achieve the desired organic, famous tone character of this design.

The guitar comes equipped with a pair of our VF-17 Plus hand-wound humbucker pickups that provide warm articulated tones, while maintaining punch and clarity.

Arion is an exceptionally comfortable and versatile guitar combining classic vibe and modern reliability.

      VF-59 Vintage

      Our VF-59 Vintage is our take, with a twist, to the famous P.A.F design of the 50’s iconic humbuckers.

      They are wound in our Fremediti workshop featuring all US top quality components as, nickel bottom plates, custom machined metal spacers & maple spacers, 2-conductor shielded cables and vacuum wax potting for squeal-free performance and they are carrying some unique tone characteristics as:
      - Clean and articulate sound with a lot of sustain, attack and exceptional note separation, allowing complex chords to shine even under high gain.
      - Perfectly balanced frequency response that combines a soft, sweet treble attack with a warm, full sounding low-end, through the complete range of the fretboard.
      - Wide range of dynamics and harmonics.
      - Unchanged sound character in ultra clean or heavily distorted sounds.
      - Airy openness to the top-end providing clarity and articulation to chords.

      Our VF-59 Vintage pickups can be ordered unpotted for that genuine 50’s P.A.F. specs and with long or short feet in order to accommodate all guitar designs.
