Fresher FLP 1200 1978 Faded Sunburst - Solid Top - Japan Vintage - Long Tenon

Sorry, this listing has ended.


Late 70's Fresher FLP1200, very rare, don't even think these where in the Fresher Catalogs. Most likely a special order. I have 4 of these, very rare. Its not cheap I know but I am in no rush to sell, out of my personal collection. The prices on these type of Gems keep rising as the cost of comparable Tokai and Greco models skyrocket into the 3 Grand and beyond Strata.

1 pc Honduran Mahogany body, Brazilian Rosewood board, Top is Solid Flame Maple. instead of book matching and matching it they matched the flame to make it look like a one pc top, flame runs from top to bottom at a slant... see the Photo's, very cool look.I have two of these, and have only seen 3 total in my whole time collecting. An acquaintance in Kyoto has the 3rd one, this one is naturally aged, its not really beat up real bad, but kind of has a relic/vintage vibe to it. Pickups were swapped out to 59' classics by the first owner. Super Rare Guitar, and killer vibe and tone.

Lacquer is chipping off on some of the corners, see pics, the guitar is in good solid condition overall but the finish is worn... I believe this particular guitar was made in 1978.

We put these Freshers up against just about all the JV LPS types, and this one in most cases beat the others... no fooling, and in other cases when put up against old Greco Egfs and Navigators held its own... This is superior to 90 percent of newer G guitars and way way less...

Ultra Rare Pre Lawsuit logo... check it out.

There is debate as to who actually made these gutiars, as Fresher did not have a factory but contracted out to various factories to make their products. This looks like it could be Terada Made.  Has a true extended tenon unlike Tokai guitars made in this era.

Comes with a gig bag, can upgrade to HSC at an extra charge.

Free US shipping in all 50 States. Can do international shipping, however we would have to work out all the details, as the sites treaty is really making it a hassle to ship to some overseas destinations.

Thanks for looking.
