Friedman Vintage T Guitar, Candy Apple Red

Alder Body, Maple Neck and Fretboard

Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this Friedman Vintage T guitar. Designed with an old school hot-rodded tele deluxe in mind, this is perfect for the rocker who wants something that looks old school. This one does have a mahogany body which is a departure from the traditional alder/ash builds, but helps it handle tones with distortion a bit better.

I think we can all agree that, when you think of Grover Jackson, you think of guitars that are meant to rock and will melt faces. So making a guitar like this just made sense and, of course, they hit it out of the park with this design. The pickups are great for blues and rock tones while having some of that vintage vibe that we all know and love. The fretwork is a thing of beauty and the guitar arrived to us already with low action and an ease of playability that rockers are going to love, while still also having a character and feel that traditionalists will appreciate. You don't have to wrestle with this guitar as you had to with so many vintage tele's, but it still definitely has all of the mojo you would want. The tasteful medium age relic job gives the guitar a look of being an old friend that has some stories to tell without being all beat up and looking like it was dragged behind a truck on a gravel road.

These are truly cream of the crop instruments collaborated on by a couple of guys that are known for their meticulous attention to their craft. The result is exactly as you might expect, thoroughly superb.
