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 absolute best - a "peak" guitar from his cedar period. Although an incredibly powerful guitar, the 'quality' of tone is like soft, fine silk, with controlled and balanced layers of overtones stacked on the crystal-clear fundamental. 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 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. Note - although this is a "second hand" instrument, built over a quarter century ago, it is in near-mint condition. With the exception of a recent fret job done brilliantly by GV Rubio, it is virtually in the same condition as when it was new. This is a rare opportunity to own what can only be described literally as a Friederich in pristine condition. For sound, condition and collectability, this is an extremely desirable example by this legendary maker.Orfeo magazine article on Daniel Friederich
