  • Comments:

    This is a really superb Daniel Friederich spruce guitar - so strong and full of richness of tone with great clarity and sustain. Without doubt, also the the most attractive in condition that we have seen - with the front for example retaining its original warm, un-faded colour.
    Daniel Friederich has fully retired now and has sold many of his tools and timbers, so there will be no more to come.
    This guitar is a performer's or collector's dream; it has everything.
