Description

The guitars of Daniel Friederich are known for their unsurpassed aesthetic as well as beautiful and magisterial quality of tone. Many of the best players in the world play or have played Friederich guitars, including the Romeros, Manuel Barrueco, Julian Bream, Scott Tennant, Roberto Aussel, Eduardo Fernandez, Alvaro Pierri, David Tanenbaum and many others.

This guitar represents Daniel Friederich at his best - a "peak" guitar from his cedar period. Although an incredibly powerful guitar with huge volume, the 'quality' of tone is like soft, fine silk, with controlled and balanced layers of rich overtones stacked on the crystal-clear fundamental of every note. Many have commented that this sound is "creamy" or "chocolaty". In any case it intoxicating to player and listener alike. It has an almost cathedral-like presence, which gives it plenty of power for any concert hall – and as already noted, has huge power even when compared to a more "typical" Friederich - making this a true "concert grand" of a guitar. These instruments are becoming some of the most prized among collectors, but they are also being played by top concert artists worldwide. The guitar is in excellent condition for its age and recently had the frets replaced to improve playability and some light finish work on top of the existing finish to cover up areas that had become worn from regular use over the past 4 decades. At some point in its history the machines were replaced with Rodgers (which Friederich would adopt later in his career). There are also two small, hairline surface cracks in the top that were repaired with glue only from the exterior (no internal reinforcing work was necessary). This is a rare opportunity to own what can only be described literally as a top-tier example from Friederich's output. For sound, condition and collectability, this is an extremely desirable example by this legendary maker.
