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.
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?
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)?
