Pleasantly surprise
Decided to try out some of these Farida guitars on a visit to the Elderly showroom last year, and liked the sound and feel of the OT-25 VBS. For this price point, it's turned out to be a really nice guitar, and the finish is really something to behold. The neck is quite comfortable, and I find that I prefer the shorter scale length and the smaller body size over my full-scale dreadnought guitar. Lots of bang for the buck here - nice job Elderly!

I am unbelievably impressed by this guitar. Not just for the value. I have owned many new and vintage american made guitars, including custom-ordered small shop instruments, and this is somehow right up there among the best of them. Tonally it definitely captures a vintage vibe somewhere between an L-00 and 00-18. The short scale is a joy to play on and the neck is quite fast too. For folks with larger hands, you might be happier with the wide-neck version which is another cool option for a guitar in this price point. The finish is surprisingly good as well. Really beautiful burst. Bravo to Elderly for a killer guitar, and as always, great service and an out of the box perfect setup. Review by Brad / (Posted on 9/22/2018)
Along with Stan & Joe's ideas, they came up with the best of the best.
I have bought guitars from Elderly for three decades. I have owned higher end guitars. After talking with Joe in the repair shop, I ordered a OT-25 Farida and have never been happier. Review by JR / (Posted on 1/6/2018)
FaridaOT25 awesome guitar
I bought a Farida OT25 for my wife in March. What a great guitar! Plenty of projection and bass, comfortable to play, an Elderly Instruments set up and a good price too. Interestingly I recently picked up a Gibson LG2AE and comparing the two, the Farida OT25 does have more punch. also it's quite a bit heavier the the Gibson. The Gibson sound is more sparkly, but the Farida, I have to concede is one heck of an instrument. Kudos to Stan and Joe for a fantastic idea, and fine execution of that idea. This guitar gets a lot of playing time not just from my wife either. Great job Elderly Review by BenJammin / (Posted on 7/15/2017)
