The Pederson Drea Armani Arch Top guitar is a 15" lower bout jazz/rock hollow body guitar. To gets its ‘maximum sustain and big open jazzy sound’ we use Select Walnut back and sides on this model (other options available). This guitar is constructed much like an acoustic with bent sides, a head block, a tail block and a separate back and top plate. The Drea Armani back is specifically engineered to be active and responsive in its output. The Drea Armani top is Spruce and carved to specifications that allow maximum tonality, sustain and resonance.
The Drea has a new engineered tailpiece and NEW US Patent no. 8,748,718 Adjustable Bone Saddles. With the new bridge and bone saddles there will be improved Sustain, Resonance and Tone. The new bone saddles balance the string pressure out at two points on the saddle producing a real ‘organic’ and woody tone. There is improved tone across the low, mid and high frequencies. You can now have both the boutique bone tone AND adjust the saddles (for intonation) during seasonal adjustments, or for desired action changes and different string gauges.
