Daniel Friederich of Rue Sergent Bauchat, Paris

  • Year:

    1971 - number 304. Top concert model.

  • Body:

    Indian Rosewood - dark and attractive in colour

  • Front:

    European spruce - really tight-grained and with his well-admired rosette of a chain of interlinking ovals and surrounding herringbone rings

  • Tuners:

    Original Fustero tuners with engraved brass sideplates and transparent mother-of-pearl buttons.

  • Scale:


  • Neck Width:

    52.5mm at the nut

  • Condition:

    The overall condition is very good for a 37 year-old guitar that has been used professionally and has no significant issues. The back of the neck and head have just been repolished by Rohan Lowe so look and feel like new. The fingerboard was refaced and refretted well a few years ago in France, is in good order and produces very good intonation. The rosewood back is looking near new as are the sides except for the remnants of a few nicks and knocks at the bottom. The front has two shrinkage cracks by and just below the waist, bass-side. They are tight closed, stable and unlikely to change for decades. General playing wear has been freshened up by spiriting over the french polish and one area of scratches by the rosette has been repolished and matched in very well by Rohan Lowe. The significant majority of the polish on the front is original and therefore the colour and general appearance is what it should be.

  • Comments:

    This is a concert-worthy guitar. Full of refinement, clarity and power, the sound is very smooth and aristocratic. The spruce Friederichs are not so easy to find and those from the late 60's and 70's are the most sought-after by many people. This guitar has been professionally used over many years and is testament to its quality and range of sound colours
