Framus Unveils New Remodeled Guitars For 2019

At this year’s NAMM show, the Framus guitar lines are dominated by three-dimensional tops and strikingly curved contours, which are already familiar from the Framus Idolmaker and which make the Diablo II and Panthera II models unmistakable and extremely aesthetic. The Stormbender Devin Townsend model will also be available as a 7-string Masterbuilt from 2019. The Framus model Diablo was completely revised and now presents itself as Diablo II, with carved top like the Idolmaker. All instruments of the Masterbuilt and Teambuilt model series feature Plek Fretwork with IFT – Invisible Fretwork Technology. The fret edges of all Masterbuilts are rounded in addition.
