    Here's an article on the Legacy Series Acoustics: Framus Expands Legacy Acoustic Series | Premier Guitar

    [​IMG]

    Markneukirchen, Germany (November 30, 2015) -- As previously announced in the spring, the Framus Legacy Acoustic Series will expand with some very interesting models. New in the range are instruments with solid spruce top, solid back and solid sides made from East Indian Rosewood. These new all solid Framus Legacy Dreadnoughts are available with or without cutaway, with or without Fishman pickup system, and in Vintage Satin Natural Tinted and Vintage High Polish Natural Tinted finishes. A case is included with these Framus Legacy Acoustics.

    The Framus Legacy Acoustic Jumbo family has also grown. Already available are the new Maple Jumbos (top made of solid spruce, back and sides are made of laminated maple) as well as the Framus Legacy Mahogany Jumbos (top made of solid mahogany, back and sides made of laminated mahogany). Each model is available with or without cutaway, with or without Fishman pickup system and in various finishes.

    Also 12-string dreadnoughts now enrich the Framus Legacy Acoustic Series. Featuring solid spruce top (back and sides made of laminated mahogany), these are powerful sounding twelve string guitars, available optionally without or with cutaway, with or without Fishman pickup system and in various finishes.

    For a powerful sound, all Framus Legacy acoustic guitars are equipped with extremely durable Cleartone Acoustic Strings, which are coated for extra long life. Framus Legacy Acoustics have already satisfied many customers and received countless positive reviews from around the world. We are sure that all new models will also convince and inspire. Most of the new models are already available, some will follow at the end of January 2016.

    And it seems they like the Devin Townsend's Framus down under!

    Mixdown's Top 5: Signature Guitars Of 2016 (So Far) | Mixdown

    Framus Devin Townsend

    Devon Townsend’s signature Framus looks like parts of a spaceship have been salvaged and formed into a guitar, which wouldn’t be too far fetched considering it's Devin Townsend we are talking about here. The German built guitar has a mahogany neck and a special tiger-stripe ebony fretboard, giving Townsend firm ground to shred his way through the 22 jumbo frets and 24.75 inch flamed-maple neck top. One of Townsend trademarks is the evertune bridge, which has been a popular choice in 2016.

    DEVIN TOWNSEND and the Framus STORMBENDER Prototype




    And, if you look at the notes to the video: "Please note: A lower price range model of the Framus Stormbender will be available in the Chinese made Dragon Series (D-Series)."

    You'd expect split coil configurations from that five way switch, especially on a Diablo model.

    My Renegade has a push/pull on the tone knob to split the coils, but I do agree. However, I think they are envisaging a different type of customer with that model.
