VINTAGE-S

  • Timeless Classic
  • Vintage Feel - Modern playability
  • Versatile Proven Design

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.

  • Classic Humbucker DC Resistance: 7.9k Bridge
  • Classic+ Humbucker DC Resistance: 8.2k Bridge

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.
