This Guitar is Ex-Demo, given to us by our Friedman representative's demo stock. 

 Friedman has taken the tube amp market by storm on a worldwide bases. The instant players plug into a Friedman amp there is something familiar - but there's more - that special something that makes them want to keep playing - and then own one, regardless of cost.

In reality, an amp is just a set of parts - capacitors, resistors, wire, transformers, potentiometers and switches etc... Individually, none of the components deliver the "Secret Sauce" that makes a Friedman amp a Friedman. The secret sauce is, in fact, simply a series of choices made by Dave Friedman, using his trained ear, 20-plus years of experiences working on amplifiers and the highest level of craftsmanship. Which parts? What value? Used where? Connected how? In which configuration? These answers, and Dave's painstaking attention to every nuance is what delivers the tone players seek. This high standard is the reason Dave himself bench tests, plays and signs EVERY amp before it leaves the shop.

It is this same relentless perseverance that makes Friedman guitars so special. Many people know Daves history of working on amplifiers and building rigs for rocks elite players. What most people don't know is that Dave's passion and knowledge of guitars is just as deep. Dave has been consulting for and advising guitar companies in the background for years.

This wealth of knowledge is infused into the new Vintage-T Collection. Just like every Friedman amps, in their raw state, Friedman guitars are just wood,frets, tuners and pickups etc... The "Secret Sauce" is all of the subtle choices Dave made, then brought to life by legendary guitar builder, Grover Jackson.

Plug into a Vintage T and you will be inspired to play and keep playing. A carefully seasoned mixture of the familiar and that which is new.

Aged Nitrocellulose Finish

Grover Jackson is one of the few guitar manufacturers in South California permitted to spray nitrocellulose lacquer. Friedman guitars wear a thin nitro finish allowing the wood to breathe.

Premium Body Woods

Dave chose genuine Mahogany and Alder as the body woods of choice for their classic tonal character. Each piece of wood is hand-selected by Grover Jackson himself. In the last round of building 25 guitars, over 500 wood planks were inspected by Grover. 475 did not make the cut. Grain pattern and light weight is the benchmark for every Vintage-T guitar.

Compound Radius

Grover Jackson invented the compound radius fingerboard 35 years ago. The fingerboard geometry is based on a conical shape rather than cylindrical. The significance is tangible and substantial - a 10"-14" compound radius fingerboard allows for maximum playability with no chance of your strings fretting out when bending. Compound radius is time-consuming and laborious to get exactly right, yet worth it - and featured on every Friedman Vintage-T.

Custom Friedman Pickups

Dave and Grover worked for over a year on the Friedman Classic humbucker and Classic 90 pickups to get the exact tone Dave envisioned. Both choices feature nickel silver base plates,high quality copper wire and alnico magnets.

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
