Avro-sonic final.png

Okay, we all remember the Avro Arrow, right? Canada's cutting edge jet interceptor was ahead of it's time for the late 1950's...and even though it was never brought to full production, it was a marvel of engineering beauty, and a huge source of pride that still resonates with Canadians to this day.

Frederick's Avro-Sonic harkens back to the dawn of the jet-age, with it's streamlined appearance and angular lines. You almost expect it to take flight of it's own accord!

Designed as a no-nonsense music machine, it is surprisingly comfortable to play, due in part to the sweeping contours of the unique body shape and weight distribution.

Standard pickup options include proprietary offerings from ColMax custom pickups; a pair of Frederick designed P90 sized mini humbucker / gold foils, or ColMax designed overwound lipstick pickups. Custom pickup configurations are absolutely possible, as always. Back-painted pickguards and retro colour palette add to the nostalgic vibe of this guitar.
