About This Listing

Canada’s Michel Belair has rendered a faithful homage to one of Classical Lutherie’s late masters, Daniel Friederich, with this model from 2019. Belair, a professional musician in addition to being a builder, has owned two Friederichs, #557 and #763, the latter of which was used as the basis for this Hommage model. Belair was able to use Friederich’s personal notes from that build in order to dial in every aspect of the build, from the density and deflection of the Cedar top (with matching grain and coloration to the original) to the interior side laminations of Mahogany (Rosewood outside) and Rodgers tuners. The result is phenomenal. The instrument sings; clarity across all the registers, with a powerful and balanced bass response that pairs well with sweet, articulate trebles.
