Friedman

Description

Created by Dave Friedman and Grover Jackson, the Friedman Metro D is a sophisticated take on the classic single-cutaway set-neck guitar. Combining balance and beauty with extraordinary playability, the Metro D is made from woods hand selected by Jackson and features custom pickups from Friedman's shop, that provide classic "PAF"-style tones with a modern edge. This Heavy-Aged version features the well-worn look of a nitro-finished old and faithful companion. The guitar comes with a custom G&G hard case and a certificate of authenticity signed by both Friedman and Jackson. This classic-in-the-making will certainly be one for the ages.
