Dual humbucker Vintage-T.
In designing and building the Friedman Vintage-T electric guitar, Friedman chose genuine Mahogany, Alder and Ash as the body woods of choice for their classic tonal character. Each piece of wood is hand-selected by Grover Jackson himself. In the last round of building 25 guitars, over 500 wood planks were inspected by Grover and 475 did not make the cut. Guess what? Yours did. These are magnificent instruments. Grain pattern and light weight are benchmarks for every Vintage-T.
Select eastern hard maple was chosen for the neck, with Indian rosewood fingerboard. It is also available with your choice of Maple, Birdseye Maple, Ebony or Pau Ferro fingerboards. Jescar FW47095 nickel silver fret wire is used on all Vintage-T guitars.
Grover Jackson invented the compound-radius fingerboard (CRF) 35 years ago. The fingerboard geometry for the Friedman Vintage-T is based on a conical shape rather than cylindrical. The significance is tangible and substantial; a 10”-14” compound radius fingerboard allows for maximum playability with no chance of your strings fretting out when bending. Compound radius is time-consuming and laborious to get exactly right, and it is featured on every Friedman Vintage-T.
Zero-shift Neck Pin
Neck shifting results in incorrect string alignment and is a challenge for many guitars. A tight neck pocket helps, but in-and-of itself does not eliminate the problem. Vintage-T guitars raise the bar with the exclusive Zero-Shift Neck Pin design; whereby, two military grade precision steel dowel pins align the body and neck, eliminating shift all together. The tonal benefit of this connection is a virtual fusion of the body and neck whereby the transference of vibration is maximized.
Plek – Very few boutique builders and many of the giants do not use a PLEK. This German-made device provides the ultimate in fretboard analysis, fret-leveling and overall setup, and ensures maximum modern playability of all Friedman guitars.
Custom Friedman Pickups
The Friedman Classic Humbucker produces vintage-style tone with an exceptionally balanced frequency response, outstanding clarity and extended dynamic range. These 42 awg pickups are reminiscent of late ‘59 PAFs in tone with a bit more attitude.
