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.

From one of the most important builders of the 20th century, this guitar represents Daniel Friederich at his absolute best. The tone is like soft, fine silk, with controlled and balanced layers of overtones stacked on the crystal-clear fundamental. Many have commented that the 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 – it has more power than a typical Friederich - 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, now 10 years old, it is in mint condition. Exactly 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 absolutely new condition. For sound, condition and collectability, this is an extremely desirable example by this legendary maker.
