-Other:Purchased from an excellent fellow Forum member several years ago. Per information provided by original owner this instrument was built to reverse-engineered plans that were drafted by Jeff Sigurdson. The bracing is described as “symmetric.” I do not have further details. This is really an excellent guitar, especially at this price. I have never played an actual Friederich, but this instrument held up quite well compared to a fantastic Delarue that I owned at the same time. The buttery smooth Scheller tuners are quite a bonus on this instrument.
