OVERVIEW

Classic body style with modern design elements.

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 your choice of Indian Rosewood, Maple, Birdseye Maple, Ebony or Pau Ferro fingerboard. Jescar FW47095 nickel silver fret wire is used on all Vintage-T guitars.

Compound-Radius Fingerboard
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.

Vintage-Style Tuners
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.

All Friedman guitars come in a custom G&G case.
