Friedman Vintage-S-AR3TBPH+SS Electric Guitar 3 Tone Sunburst
The Friedman Electric for Any Gig
Players often agree, if you need one guitar that does it all, it's hard to beat the HSS setup found in this Friedman Vintage S electric guitar. The HSS pickup combination includes Friedman's own clear-sounding Classic humbucker and two single-coils. When it comes to craftsmanship, not only does this solidbody boast lightweight and top-quality alder and maple, but every contour and bevel has been expertly carved for extreme playing comfort. And the Vintage S also brings a vintage-style tremolo together with high-quality Gotoh locking tuners for an instrument that gives you the best of vintage and modern.
Boutique guitars with custom-shop appointments
Dave Friedman has been modding and building music equipment for such luminary artists as Eddie Van Halen, Jerry Cantrell, and Steve Stevens for decades. And Grover Jackson has been building high-performance guitars for thousands of players around the world. Together, they're bringing you this Friedman Vintage S solidbody electric guitar. And with high-end appointments found throughout, such as Jescar 47095 fret wire, an eminently playable compound-radius fingerboard, and lightweight tonewoods, the Vintage S sets itself apart from all the others.
Custom, handmade electronics
The Vintage S's electronics were engineered to be a straightforward affair, with a variety of tones that will cover any gig or session. The Friedman Classic humbucker in the bridge position balances a clear top end that enhances string-to-string definition with an aggressive midrange that sounds marvelous when driving an amp hard. In the neck and middle positions, you'll find Friedman's Classic Single single-coil pickups for those legendary, bell-like tones. And the internal CTS pots and Orange Drop capacitors deliver the purest signal possible.
There's just something about a vintage-style, non-locking tremolo that continues to inspire guitarists, and that's exactly what you'll find on the Friedman Vintage S solidbody electric guitar. Friedman utilizes a Gotoh 510 tremolo for the sustain and clarity its steel block and bent saddles inject into your tone. And your tuning will always return back to 0 thanks to the Vintage S's Gotoh locking tuning machine heads. This is vintage performance with modern stability at its finest.
