Models

After several years of research into the guitars of Daniel Friederich culminating in the construction and sale of four guitars inspired by his designs, I am expanding  my offering to three concert guitar models.

While I continue to be inspired by the Byers style guitars, the Friederich guitars are equally inspiring. They have a different tonality that I find very distinctive. Both designs produce very responsive guitars with excellent volume, sustain, balance, and playability. All models feature compensated nuts and saddles for excellent intonation.

Based upon the dual fan design commonly used by Greg Byers combined with my elevated fret board Spanish heel architecture. I have made and sold over 50 of these guitars over the past 10 years.
