As you know Daniel Friederich are the most sought classical guitars in the world. Every week we receive from all over the world inquiries from players searching for Daniel Friederich guitars. So it is not surprising that prices are skyrocketing. As an important guitar dealer, we have noticed that the demand for Friederich largely exceeds the demand for old legendary guitars such as Fleta, Hauser or Romanillos. The only exception is maybe the Bouchet guitars. Because of the high inflation on prices, we have many owners who proposed their Friederich at a high price whatever the guitars conditions and we turned down many of them because we thought that the prices were illegitimate because the condition was not so perfect or the Friederich too old.
Here is a great Daniel Friederich for sale from 1978 cedar Top Indian rosewood in an amazing condition, mostly because the guitar has been highly maintained by his owners. This Friederich is from 1978 which can be considered as part of Daniel’s best years. The guitar is in perfect condition and has been maintained by the previous owner who took care of the guitar without making any dramatic changes.
The top used for this guitar is a cedar top with a brown, ‘chocolate’ cedar chosen by M. Daniel Friederich. We know that he sometimes used this type of darker cedar. The top has been probably repolished or refreshed, the polish on the guitar is very thin. In the back there was some polish missing where the body is touching the guitar and we took the decision to repolish to keep the wood clean and protect him for any damages. This one is very opened and has amazing thick and warm sound . See the video review.
Here is what we can say on the guitar :
- The tuners have been changed by the previous owner for Gotoh tuner
- Brand new frets (we have the old frets available)
- Back and side repolished because the original polish went away in some part of the back
- The top polish refreshed or maybe repolished but not so sure of that
- Original soft BAM case
- we guaranty this guitar free of crack and from any repair
