When Dave Friedman and Grover Jackson were designing the Friedman line of guitars a lot of thought was put into every aspect of the instrument build, especially the pickups. Inspired by both modern and vintage guitar tones, Dave wanted to make sure that the pickups used in all Friedman guitars delivered the exact tone he envisioned. With Dave’s clear vision and Grover’s unsurpassed skills, the Friedman Classic Pickup line was born!
The Friedman Classic Humbucker is an amalgamation of vintage and modern humbucker tones. Dave wanted to make sure the Classic Humbucker had an open vintage inspired tone with a more modern twist which is why all Friedman Classic Humbucker pickups feature Alnico 5 magnets. The Friedman Classic Humbucker delivers a punchy vintage inspired tone with a “Hard Rock” modern edge.
