Freshman / FA400 FBJ Sinker Redwood / 2012 / Natural / Guitar
Sinker Redwood has been the buzzword in acoustic tonewoods for a while now, but still in small supply it’s always a treat to find one. This 2012 custom order by Freshman shows just what this beautiful tonewood can do on a jumbo size body, and paired with Indian Rosewood back and sides, this guitar really moves some air. It’s both dynamic yet smooth at the same time, the Rosewood gives projection and clarity, while the Redwood warms and smooths. It’s been called Cedar on steroids, and I can see why. A really impressive guitar, yes because it’s been produced by a more affordable company, the price isn’t out of everybody’s reach. The guitar is in excellent condition, with a very comfortable feeling neck and action, and comes in a Hiscox flight case.

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.
