Key features

The need for perfection, led us to the creation of innovative ideas and solutions in the crafting of our guitars, safeguarding to the traditional luthierie methods.

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.

Each string has its own specific individual suspension spring, that works in parallel to the tailpiece, resulting in a much "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.

Our Fremediti tailpiece is machined from titanium alloy, providing added stability and reduced weight.

Finally, a handcrafted ebony with exotic top cover, adds to the classic aesthetics of the guitar.

Fremediti Eumelia Pedal

Fremediti Eumelia Pedal

Our Eumelia guitar stands out in our archtop line, as the most traditional model.

To get the maximum of its capabilities without affecting its acoustic sound, we designed and developed in house the "Eumelia control pedal".

It is an external management system, in pedal format that carries all the electronic wiring of the guitar. This way the guitar top remains free of parts and elements that can affect the sound qualities of the guitar. On the other hand, it gives the player the possibility to have a great selection of acoustic and electric sounds, as well as the ability of blending them.

The guitar comes equipped with two output connectors, one XLR type for the use with the "Eumelia control pedal" and a normal one for using the guitar with the on-board "under thumb rest", mini disc knobs.

All the above features offer "Eumelia" unlimited potential in sound shaping.

The pedal contains an electric/acoustic selector, a blend on-off mode, a blend balance pot, an active or passive EQ switch and an acoustic pickup face selector.

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.

Strings to Body Clearance

The higher strings to body clearance found in our hollow-body Ampion AC and Euphony AC, is a feature borrowed from our top of the line archtops, Eumelia and Polymnia.

It allows us to use the Fremediti Piezo bridge and the Fremediti titanium tailpiece in these two hollow-body models.

These key elements offer Amphion AC and Euphony AC the feel, playability and acoustic sound character found in our Archtops.

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.

Pots Mounted to the Fingerrest

Two mini pots are discreetly positioned under the fingerrest, without any contact with the guitar top, thus not affecting its free vibration.

Additionally, this set up does not interfere with the classic appearance of the guitar.

Fremediti Acoustic/Electric Control 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.

Handmade Laminated Top and Back 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.

Varitone

The varitone circuit is an RLC notch filter that can be added in the guitars main circuit.

It utilizes a variety of capacitors to achieve a reduction in frequencies at set points within the overall bandwidth. As the varitone is rotated from (position 1) to (position 6), the center frequency (f0) of the filter shifts from higher to lower frequencies.

The key point in order to get the most effective results of this RLC circuit is the adjustment of its characteristics according to the guitars main circuit specs (pickups, pots, capacitors, cable types).

Smooth Transition Set-neck Joint

Orpheus models (set-neck edition), features a soft double cutaway body design with easy reach to the last frets.

This is obtained by the smooth neck to body transition shape and special design of the neck to body joint.

The set neck construction additionally results in more sustain and stability of the guitar construction.

Fremediti Deluxe Hard Case

Fremediti case

Our deluxe hard case is handmade from laminated wood and covered with beautiful dark brown leatherette.

The interior of the case is covered with a quality protective velvet textile that is nitrocellulose lacquer friendly. This case is tailored to the exact size of our archtop models.

A hygrometer is incorporated so you can control the humidity level inside the case.

This highly protective deluxe hard-case comes as standard with any of our archtop models.
