The Pederson Hand Made Archtop Advantage...
The Pederson Drea Armani is a 15" Jazz guitar. At 15" this guitar is perfect for the performing jazz artist with its mid-sized body. Producing a BIG well-rounded sound for its size, it will appeal to not only the modern alternative player but to the jazz purist as well.
This guitar has been redesigned completely from a player's standpoint, so that the hands fall exactly in to the right places on the guitar as you play. Whether you sit and play or stand up and play, it is perfectly balanced allowing you to put all your energy into playing the guitar, not fighting it. The Drea Armani becomes part of your body as it is tucked under your picking arm and there is no struggle to play the neck because your fretting hand falls right on the neck in the sweet spot due to its re-design.
The voice of the guitar is its selling character. The highs and mids come off the guitar with authority, yet they do not over power the full rich bass notes. There is a plethora of tones produced by the spruce carved top, and you'll notice its big voice and even bigger response.
The responsiveness is the Drea Armani's relationship with you. As your fingers manipulate the notes you'll notice that there is an atmosphere around the Drea Armani. It responds with its own personality to your light touch and playing style with tonal balance and note-to-note richness. Responsiveness and sustain are intertwined in the voice of this guitar and the Armani's tones are powerful, evident and drenched in rich sustain.
The guitar is about 2-3/4" thick, so it is form following function. Another great feature on this guitar is that the back has the tummy bevel for player comfort and the neck joint bevel to allow for easier access to the higher fret regions.
