The tones are just heavenly. Ease of play and feel of the neck is superb. Compare this to a Taylor or Martin and you will find that this is a true winner.
This arrived about 30 minutes ago and did not disappoint. It is not only strikingly beautiful but rings like a bell. I look forward to many hours getting to know this most fine instrument. It is already well on the way to being my favorite guitar.
I get so many compliments about the appearance of my Freja! Even more than I do for my EOS. The Freja did need a setup moreso than the Eos when it arrived, but once it had that it has become my primary rehearsal and performance instrument. Sounds great acoustically, and I’ve had a lot of compliments about the sound through systems with the built-in preamp, and with no additional DI most of the time. Thanks Andrew for recommending this instrument as a larger sounding alternative to my Eos.
Beautiful and beautifully sounding guitar

The F2A2 is a great valued guitar. I appreciate getting Exotic Tonewood as well as great craftsmanship in an instrument around $1000. The action was clean right out of the box which allows smooth playability and quick movements. As a Taylor owner I would compare this instrument against the Taylor 214 or Taylor 314 in quality. However; this instrument is more competitively priced.
I have been playing with this model for 3 months now. I use it in our live shows more than any other guitar I own. Never have I received complements as I do when I play this guitar, and they are usually from the sound guy. I would compare the sound to, as good or better, than any Taylor or Martin out there. Thank you Andrew for such a marvelous guitar !!!!

Pleasantly surprised! I have never played an Andrew White guitar, but when I received my Deckers Creek Dreadnought not only was the guitar stunning…but it played like an old friend! Excellent tone, easy to play, comfortable all the way up the fretboard. I wanted a great sounding acoustic with no frills, and I got it and then some! Thanks Andrew!

This guitar is a real piece of art! It came with a tag stating that it was inspected before shipping and came with nice Daddario coated bronze strings! The size and shape is perfect and the weight is nice and light while still feeling sturdy! The sound is also very nice and I enjoy playing both strumming and finger style and do not have problems with either! It picks up sounds acoustically very well and sounds very crisp!

I first became aware of Andrew White guitars as I was reading through the website of a guitar show that I was unable to attend. I signed up for the mailing list and kept seeing these nice-looking guitars that seemed to get overwhelmingly good reviews. I kept “nearly” getting various Deals of the Day but each time I was ready to go for it something came up. My wide came up as I was looking at a spalted maple guitar and told me I should get it, but it scrolled off the Deal of the Day before I cold get back to it. I was quite happy to see the Freja 2A2 show up not long afterward and decided that I should stop waiting and start buying! The guitar showed up a few days later, and I have to say that I am really glad that I purchased it! The Ash wood looks beautiful, and gives the guitar a really nice tone. The notes are well-defined and seem to ring out forever if you want them to. The tuning machines feel solid, and the fretboard feels great. I have several guitars, including a Taylor 314CE, and this one has quickly become my favorite every-day guitar. I’m looking forward to playing out with it soon, as I’m sure it will sound fantastic in an ensemble setting. My only regret is that I didn’t spring for the hard case. The gig bag that it came with is quite nice, and would protect it from normal mishaps, I am sure, but the hard case would give me a little more piece of mind. I don’t see how I could ask for a better value except, perhaps, one of Andrew’s other Production models.
