FRESHMAN Acoustic Guitars



Renegade Series

The Renegade Series are guitars designed to accommodate a smaller budget without sacrificing any of the quality that Freshman is renowned for.

"At this price point these guitars are hard to fault. Truth be told, I have seen inferior finishing and detailing on many name brand and handmade guitars that cost many times more money. An overall feeling of solidity suggests that these guitars could survive years of gigging or being slung in the back of cars."

"The overall standard of setup is high – with a comfortable action and fairly slim neck. Freshman has done a great job with the Apollo 2 OC, delivering a solidly made acoustic guitar with excellent playability, a light and pleasant sound, and some upmarket cosmetics." - Guitar Buyer Magazine

  • A, AA and AAA grade premium woods

  • State of the art Fishman EQ system


400 Series

We believe that every guitar is a significant investment for the player – whether that investment is measured in time or money. The 400 Series offers a return on that investment like no other, with price comparable guitars offering you far poorer tonewoods and far less rewarding sound.

From their solid ‘AAA’ Grade Engelmann Spruce tops to their Maple binding, the 400 Series exemplifies a stunning level of craftsmanship. Described by Guitarist Magazine as delivering a sound that is ‘richer and more glistening’ than their competitors, and awarded the highest ever review score for an acoustic by Acoustic magazine, the 400 Series begs to be played for hours on end.

500 Series

Each Freshman 500 series guitar features AAA graded Canadian Solid Sitka Spruce top with solid african rosewood back and sides, genuine green Abalone rosette, Herringbone purfling and Ivoroid binding.The end result is something quite special.

“ Upon opening the excellent black nylon covered deluxe hardcase I instantly fell in love with this guitar. I can honestly say that it is one of the prettiest, most appealing guitars I have ever seen. Without a doubt, if this guitar was hanging on the wall, it would be the first one I reach for........”

“.....In terms of performance, I have to say that I was really taken aback. The fingerboard is ebony and possesses 20 perfectly finished frets. The setup is as good as any guitar I’ve played. Freshman are at pains to preach the word about their stringent quality control throughout the manufacturing process and then again once product has been landed. The end result speaks for itself.”


600 Series

Every Freshman 600 Series Guitar is quite simply about the quality of the sound.
