Polymnia - Acoustic / Electric Archtop

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

Made with premium selected solid European tonewoods, handmade traditional construction such as, X-bracing  tap tuned top, hand-graduated top and back, with the addition of some modern crafting elements, allow this guitar to deliver fully electric sounds while maintaining  its acoustic sound properties.

Polymnia is extremely comfortable to play, as it comes equipped with our patented “Fremediti suspension tailpiece“. Our tailpiece is custom made out of titanium alloy and features six different density independent spring suspensions (one for each string), with parallel to the strings movement. This design allows the guitar to have a softer, more comfortable feel on the neck.

A piezo acoustic handmade ebony bridge and a pair of VF-10 Jazz pickups, provide an extended electric and acoustic tone variety. The onboard “Fremediti acoustic/electric control system” is used for the control of the acoustic and electric sounds that can cover the complete range of the jazz territory and beyond.

    Hand-graduated and Tap Tuned

    This is the most traditional way for curving the top and back of an archtop.

    Top and back plates are hand carved and very carefully graduated through their surface, using different kind of chisels and techniques. We curve the back and the top plate especially (with the help of its bracing), in such a way, that they transmit vibrations evenly through their entire surface.

    In the final stages of back and top curving, we enter into one of the most crucial procedures that will define the sound qualities of the guitar, the so called “tap tone tuning”. We carefully remove tiny parts of wood adjusting the wood thickness, checking contiguously by taping in specific areas of the back and top plate, until we achieve the “tuning” of both woods in the desired key.

    Using these tuned pieces in the construction, the guitar can produce a louder, more resonant primary tone and rich over tones.

    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.

    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.
