Freedom Custom Guitar Research has a studio in Machiya, Tokyo.
Flagship model Hydra with Arimizo 1-Point joint.

5A flame maple top/alder 1P back body, maple neck/rosewood fingerboard.
Custom specification of matching head with deep see-through blue finish named Ruri.
The fingerboard radius is 280mm, and the frets are original stainless steel SP-SF-05 WARM.
The scale is 25 inches and 635mm, which is slightly shorter than the ST style, and features a soft sense of tension.

Wilkinson 2Point bridge with Gotoh trim lock pegs.
The pickup is an HSH layout with two hybrid humbuckers and an FST-Type3 single coil.
The tap control mechanism allows seamless control between single coil and humbucker.

The characteristic ARIMIZO 1 Point Joint is Freedom's unique mechanism that requires extremely high precision machining.
By tightening with a wrench, it is possible to control sound that was impossible in the past, such as the speed of rise and harmonic content.
The circular heel shape makes it easy to play high frets.

You can check the body dents, scratches, dullness of parts, etc.
The truss rod can be adjusted left and right, and about 80% of the frets remain, so there is no problem with the neck condition during normal playing.
We clean and adjust the product after receiving it.
