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 guitars, including Angel Romero, Manuel Barrueco, Julian Bream, Scott Tennant, Roberto Aussel, Eduardo Fernandez, Alvaro Pierri, David Tanenbaum and many others.
This guitar from 1981 has the fullness, robustness and depth of sound that Friederich is known for in his best cedar instruments. The tone is like soft, fine silk, with controlled and balanced layers of overtones stacked on the crystal-clear fundamental. It has an almost cathedral-like presence, which gives it plenty of power for any concert hall – it has a thundering presence, and is a true "concert grand" of a guitar. These instruments are becoming some of the most prized among collectors, but they have been and continue to be played by top concert artists worldwide. For both sound, and collectability, this is an extremely desirable example by this legendary maker.
