Orville Breeveld Custom signature electric guitar

Orville Breeveld

Musician, composer, teacher, coach, father.

With a strong cosmopolite vision Orville tries to bind musicians together, regardless their roots, within a limitless number of succesfull projects - always with 200% positive energy!

As a replacement for Orville his old Ibanez AW400 we developed together a semi-hollow version of Ferrn's Custom-1 electric guitar in 2014.

The specifications of the neck are a direct copy of the old Ibanez guitar.

The magenta red color is an early memory of the guitar played by Orville his father.

The Fern's Custom serie electric guitars has a particular comfortable balance when played both sitting and standing. When standing, the guitar stays perfect in position. That means you can concentrate on playing the guitar instead of where the guitar neck wants to go to. High positions are extremely easy to acces due to the deep cutaway and smooth neck to body transition

Endless sustain with the neck running through the body. The well-balanced combination of hardware and wood types gives the instrument also excelent dynamics. Play gentle and the guitar gives a full warm tone, play more powerfull and the sound gets a sharper attack and more byte. The Lollar standard wound Imperial Humbuckers fit perfect within this character and do not need to be proved anymore.

One of the requirements for the instrument was to make a semi-hollow construction. The mahogany body parts are partly routed, but the neck runs through the body. The AAA tigerstriped maple top closes the body. The instrument gets a more gentle weight compared to the Custom-1. Soundwise the instruments gains a nice brightness without loosing its solid sustain.

Custom finish

Custom red stained finish detail

The Orville Breeveld Custom has a magenta finish as a personal early memory to Orville his father. The guitar is first finished with stain, then with a transulent coating. This is all done by hand, only the final polishing is done with a low speed machine.
