Freshman / FA2006 GA / 2006 / Natural / Guitar
Having made their name in the mid-price acoustic guitar market, in 2006 Freshman pulled out all the stops to produce a limited run of 20 guitars of the highest quality. Using Carpathian Spruce and Quilted Mahogany, tone woods usually associate with far more expensive guitars, they’ve produced a surprisingly good guitar. Even the use of Walnut and Maple binding, together with the Ebony fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle and open back Grover tuners, are signs of quality and attention to detail. Tonally the guitar is beautifully balanced, making it an ideal fingerpicker, but when you dig in there’s real projection. The hand carved Mahogany neck makes the whole playing experience very enjoyable. The guitar is in excellent condition and comes in it’s original deluxe hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
