ALL FRIEDMAN GUITARS are Custom Ordered and built by hand. The Neck wood, body wood, color, aging, hardware and pickups are all Customizable by YOU! Or, if you see something from the gallery you like, we'll just make that, if we don't already have it in stock. Custom orders take 8-10 weeks.

***NOTE: Aging and wear marks are all one of a kind...so expect variations, as no two are the same.

Premium body woods - Dave chose genuine 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 - 475 did not make the cut. Grain pattern and lightweight are benchmarks for every VINTAGE-S.

Necks - Select eastern hard maple with your choice of Indian Rosewood, Maple, Birdseye Maple, Ebony and Pau Ferro fingerboard is available.

Frets – Jescar FW47095 nickel silver fret wire is used on VINTAGE-S guitars.

Compound Radius - Grover Jackson invented the compound radius fingerboard (CRF) 35 years ago. The fingerboard geometry 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. The compound radius is time-consuming and laborious to get exactly right, yet worth-it – and featured on every Friedman VINTAGE-S.

Tight Pocket and Exclusive Zero-Shift Neck Pins - 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-S 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 altogether. The tonal benefit of this connection is a virtual fusion of the body and neck whereby the transference of vibration is maximized.

Tuners and Bridge – The VINTAGE-S bridge features vintage style bent metal saddles combined with a 2 point Fulcrum and Steel block paired with locking vintage inspired 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.

Aged Nitrocellulose Finish - Grover Jackson is one of the few guitar manufacturers in Southern California permitted to spray nitrocellulose lacquer. Friedman guitars wear a thin nitro finish allowing the wood to breathe.

Custom Friedman Pickups – In addition to the Friedman Classic pickup line. The Friedman Classic Single pickups were designed to produce that well-known vintage single coil chime with the ability to cut through the mix. This is combined with Classic+ Humbucker in the bridge position to provide every player with a full tonal palette.
• The Friedman Classic Single Coils feature Alnico 3 magnets and the middle pickup is a Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity (RWRP). This allows the 2 and 4 pickup selector positions to be Hum Cancelling.
• The "+" in the Friedman Classic+ Humbucker signifies that it has more windings and is hotter than the Classic Humbucker. This gives the pickup a slightly crunchier tone in higher gain environments. This pickup is used in the bridge position of the CALI.

Case included – All Friedman guitars come in a custom G&G case.

Certificate of Authenticity - Dave Friedman and Grover Jackson carefully inspect each guitar prior to shipping. A serial numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by both Dave and Grover is included.
