Body: Maple, hollow

Neck: Medium “C” shaped neck, 1 5/8” wide nut, ebony fretboard, 10” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Open-back tuners, two pickups (rated at 8.8 kOhms in the neck and 8.7 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: This Framus is loaded with character! The entire body is covered in play wear, with a few more noticeable dings and dents along the top bass side horn. The hardware has a fair amount of pitting from decades of sweat and tears. The neck is nice and smooth, beyond a few small textural disruptions along the higher frets. The headstock has plenty of edge wear and surface scratches to complete the badassery. This Framus is destined to be famous!

Playability: The strings are set up nicely with medium action, and play well, but would benefit from a full fret dress.

Modifications/Repairs: None

Weight: 7lbs 3oz

Case: Original hardshell

Shop Brand: Framus
