Anyone on here play a Freshman guitar?

From their website, this Scottish company seems to have been going for just over 10 years.

I've been offered one at a very reasonable price but (Ref Thread: How Many Guitars...Is Enough??) I'm in two minds.

Worth acquiring?

All opinions welcome.

Both Boo Hewerdine and Dean Friedman played Freshman guitars when they played at a Music Festival in the Scottish Borders this year - they sounded absolutely superb.

I have two freshman guitars I play all the time, they take priority over my Santa Cruz F 1.

Archie Fisher played the Bothy folk club Southport U K recently and asked the make of my guitar,he said it sounded well ( the guitar not me )

I got one a few yrs back . At the time I tried some that were more expensive , including a tangle wood , but decided the freshman was a better sound . I was quite happy with it but awhile back the pick up stopped working and I've not got it fixed yet .      More recently I got a Luna which was more expensive but I think a fuller sound

I bought one (the 'entry level' Renegade) very cheap in a charity shop and, of my 5 acoustic guitars, it's the one I now reach for first.

It sounds beaufiful to my amateur's ears and is very easy to play

Pete from seven stars: did you register your purchase with Freshman? According their website, it appears thefe's a lifetime guarantee.

No , I didn't know there was a lifetime guarantee. And the shop keeper didn't ask me if I had, even though I got it there.

I just gave my Freshman Open Plains to my grand niece for Christmas.

I bought it cos I fell in love with the neck - I found I could do a slide I was struggling with. After a few weeks I could play it on any guitar - so the love ar first feel cooled down.

It was a nice enough guitar.

I only made one cd, and I feel that the quality was slightly compromised because I wasn't playing a solid wood guitar. I didn't want to repeat the experience, so the Freshman got the elbow.
