Combining the talents and experience of Dave Friedman and Grover Jackson —two of the finest creators in the industry — Friedman Guitars creates no-compromise instruments that combine the best of classic and modern styles and features. The Vintage S is their take on the classic three-pickup, HSS double-cutaway guitar, combining a vintage feel with truly modern playability. Built from carefully hand-selected tonewoods and featuring Plek-finished fretwork and Friedman's spectacular pickup designs, these instruments are spectacular performers. The fit and finish is astounding, and the exclusive Zero-Shift Neck Pin neck joint fuses the neck and body for maximum vibration transfer. Concluding with a carefully sprayed and meticulously aged finish, these are instruments you'll be thrilled to play and enjoy for years to come.
