I LOVE Friederich guitars, but especially the Cedar ones for some reason, they just sound so rich and elegant and warm and, well, ’noble’.
This is an extremely nice Friederich, one that a connoisseur of Friederich’s, someone who may own more than one, would play and say ’now this is a great Friederich’.
The action is comfortable on both hands, and she has lovely responsive basses and clear round melodic trebles, with a voice that is rich and warm, yet clear and melodic all at once, and, as an extra little surprise, she has perhaps more volume than most Friederich’s.
She has been well cared for with no cracks, and the current owner had the original polish ‘buffed’ to a shine so that it looks nearly new, and added Rodgers tuners which are a delight as always, and also had new frets installed.
A dream guitar, truly.
