At their essence, Friedman guitars are a combination of wood, frets, tuners, and pickups. But the “Secret Sauce” that elevates Friedman instruments is the way Dave’s meticulously selected design elements are brought to life.
Though world-renown for his amplifiers, Dave Friedman’s passion and knowledge of guitars are just as deep. His trained ear and 20-plus years at the highest level of craftsmanship has seen him consulting and advising guitar companies for years. They also inform every decision he makes in choosing the finest tonewoods, pickup designs, and other materials to craft exceptional instruments.
Knowing when to rely on the wisdom of classic designs and what elements of the electric guitar should be allowed to evolve, Dave imbues every Friedman electric guitar with a carefully seasoned mixture of the familiar and that which is new. A Friedman guitar simply needs to be experienced to be believed.
