Daniel Friederich is known for his unsurpassed aesthetic as well as his beautiful and magisterial quality of tone. Many of the best players in the world play or have played Friederich, including the Romeros, Manuel Barrueco, Julian Bream, Scott Tennant, Roberto Aussel, Eduardo Fernandez, Alvaro Pierri, David Tanenbaum and many others.
This is a spectacular instrument built by one of the most important builders of the 20th century, Daniel Friederich. It was built the same year (1967) as the instrument that would land him top prizes at the legendary Liege (Belgium) competition, setting him on the world stage. This instrument is a concert player's workhorse and an investor's dream. Tone is rich and silky, smooth and full, typical of Friederich's best work. Although dating from 1967, it is in excellent condition – There is a cracked area below the bridge, and near the center seam that was repaired many years ago by Yuris Zeltins (with only 2 small cloth patches) but otherwise the guitar is in concert-ready condition.
