Hello from the US. My Dad gave me his vintage Framus he picked up in Germany 1969 when he was there for the US Army. This will be my first guitar to learn on and I think it's really cool.

Hope to learn a lot here.

Hey ForceofWill--Welcome. Drop in a picture of your Framus if and when you get a chance. Good luck!

A Favor: Need to get me hands on the diagram for my Bass as the Middle Tone Control is not working; Have a Corvette $$ NT 5 Ocean Blue, but the guys in NY gave me a 3 way Eq. as a Bonus.

Hi Florin,
just saw the site as I was looking for some help so thought maybe I could get some information on a Framus guitar or two that I own, nice site and very interesting.
Transylvania, very nice place went there to see Bran Castle, Brasov and a few more places when I worked in Bucharest.
Regards
Steve

Hi all, I am from Cape Town South Africa, draughtsman/mechanic by trade with a love of all vintage and rare instruments out there, I have small collection of old instruments which I love working and playing on including a HiFi Six Framus with 3 pickups which my father bought in the early sixties new. I have started a new thread requesting help on getting more info on it. Unfortunately I am better skilled at working on my instruments than playing them but I love it all the same.

Hallo Alle!

I'm Hector, based in Europe. I have a 2008 Framus Renegade Pro (in red.. sadly no photos on this Linux Machine).

I love it!! My favourite Guitar!

Before buying my Framus I had a Gibson Les Paul BFG Gary Moore and a Les Paul Standard (2005). Once I bought the Framus, I sold both, haha!

I'm a newcomer to the forum, having just bought my first Framus.

It's a German Pro Series (Teambuilt) Panthera; just arrived today. Very impressed so far in the short amount of time I've had to play around with it. Pics later (maybe).

One nagging question, though......should I have saved up for a Custom Shop/Masterbuilt instead? Is there really much of a noticeable difference in terms of playability/workmanship between CS and GPS Pantheras?

Hi!

Welcome to the gang!

There should not be a significant difference tonewise and not any difference in the playability. I have only experience with basses, owning a "masterbuilt" one. The basses have minor differences now because of different preamps.

Show us some pics!

Would a fair analogy be Gibson USA's Custom Shop line (e.g. Custom/Historic Les Pauls) vs. their core product line (e.g. Les Paul Standard)?

No idea here, I don´t care about Gibson... :p Imo no, because there should be no differences in the quality between teambuilt and masterbuilt. The masterbuilt have some minor specs different. I think it makes only sense to go for a masterbuilt as long as you choose customizing options. This starts with selected woods or different neck profiles and ends with craziest LED driven skull inlays or brandings. ;)

Just check the gallery! http://www.warwick.de/en/Framus---P...asterbuilt--Basic-Guitar-Models--Galerie.html

I will use an analogy with my fav modern actress, Scarlett Johansson.

Imaging your GPS Panthera is Scarlett using normal clothes because she is going to buy some fruit at the market...

Then a Custom Shop Panthera would be the same gorgeous girl, but dessed to kill...
