Fredrik Åkesson and Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth

The SE Fredrik Åkesson is a singlecut, mahogany body guitar with a quilted maple veneer and a 24.5” scale length, 22 fret wide fat mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard and PRS bird inlays. Fredrik’s model also comes with a volume and tone control for each pickup with a 3-way toggle on the upper bout, but this traditional configuration is “inverted” with the treble controls in front of the bass controls to mirror Åkesson’s preferred setup, which allows easy access to the bridge pickup controls. Fredrik also requested an extra-deep cutaway on the body to hit the high notes more easily.
