His/her loss! I can testify that Petermc61 is the most trustworthy man on earth.


You are very kind Doan. It was more about buying an instrument without evaluation that buying from me (I hope!) Another lucky buyer will end up with this lovely instrument.


I can also vouch for petermc61 - an absolute pleasure to deal with.

I think buying an instrument without evaluation is less of an issue with high end luthier guitars. The chances of getting something subpar are low and the instrument can always be sold on if unsuitable.

A great guitar at a great price. A new Frieson will go for $7000+, probably more if its African Blackwood.

I recently acquired a Frieson Swiss Spruce/Madagascar and now play on it exclusively. Truly a phenomenal instrument that sounds better with each passing week. Balanced up and down the neck, powerful, very sustaining, grand and open sounding, good presence, powerful E string. Basses are rich, deep, powerful, yet focused. The trebles are present, clear, rich and full with a bright sparkle. The tone of this guitar really stands out as being colorful and full of character that responds exceptionally well to tonal shaping. Traditionally built all around. Pardon my enthusiasm, I've just been really happy with this guitar and its been well over a month.

I'd imagine this blackwood sounds similar to my guitar since the only difference is the back and sides. I've compared Jims guitars with other high end instruments and his guitars really stand out at even higher price points. I also got to try a Redwood/Madagascar Frieson side by side which was also excellent - Even deeper cello-like basses and warmer/rounder trebles, but I personally gravitate toward the tonal palette, complexity and sparkle that spruce offers.

That's a Gorgeous guitar you have and listed at a great price. I'm surprised it hasn't sold. I certainly vouch for Peter. He's the consummate gentleman and straight up in his transactions.

Well, thank you Jack for those nice comments. It is indeed very fairly priced for such a lovely instrument.

The guitar is still available for purchase. The person I put it on hold for pulled out. Another purchaser from the States stepped in and made an offer (accepted) - then pulled out as well! That makes three people who have each come close to owning a lovely instrument....
