We are delighted to announce that Bane and Ben Roe have been signed up by Freshman guitars who are now supporting Ben’s work on the trilogy. Ben is “Thrilled” with the arrangement and has chosen to use their model the; Apollo 3 DC, for the performances. Come and see Ben using it at the Pleasance theatre in Islington on the 9, 1o, & 11th of September. Below is some information about Freshman.
Having recently reached a landmark 10 year anniversary, Freshman Guitars remain one of the UK’s Top 5 Selling acoustic guitar brands.
Since our inception we have placed an unshakeable focus on providing the best quality instruments at exceptional prices. We source the finest tonewoods from across the world, offering inspirational sound across our diverse range.
Based just outside Glasgow, Scotland, we are proud of our heritage. Each of our guitars is designed in Scotland, with final production handled by our dedicated production facility in Asia, where each guitar is handmade. Before any of our guitars reach stores they will have been quality checked by our team of UK based technicians, offering luthier level experience that virtually guarantees a flawless purchase.
Currently Freshman Guitars has 6 key lines: Renegade, Maple Ridge, Songwriter Series, Apollo Collection, Cedar Creek and our Manuel Ferrino classical guitars. In addition to this we offer a select range of ukuleles and semi-acoustic guitars, as well as an accessories range that embodies all the same quality standards as our guitars.
Our research and development work with AER – Europe’s most pre-eminent amplification systems designers – means that Freshman electro-acoustic guitars are now fitted with world leading electronics.
Artists such as Ben Howard, Hudson Taylor and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012 ‘Best Musician of the Year’ winner Tim Edey all play our guitars. We are proud to have them on board, but equally dedicated to our ‘Supporting the Best New Music’ initiative. Through this and our partnership with successful YouTube channel Tenement TV, we are able to support a part of the music community that has always, and will always, be part of our success.
Finally, all of our guitars come with a lifetime warranty – a sign of our belief in the quality of our instruments.
