Beautiful guitar.
I used to have a lovely small bodied, arched back, Framus acoustic back in the 70's. It was stored for a few years and didn't faire so well. I still miss it.

Thanks for sharing.

Framus isnt a well known brand in Canada, but big in Europe. Warwick was started by the son of the guy who owned Framus. I've seen some cool Framus amps coming out lately..................

Is it semi hollow or hollow? How close are the pups to P90s? Does the vibrato work like a Bigsby??

When the Stones were seen and heard on the this side of the pond, Bill Wyman was playing a Framus bass.

It was a hollowbody.. I would say it was more like P90's than anything else. The The Vibrato was modeled after a bigsby but IMO did not work as well.
