    Looks like a rather standard Stratocaster clone to me.

    American Guitar Shop in Berlin have one for 2399 euro.
    Saw a used one on Reverb for little over 2000 euro.

    There was also a pro version which must have been cheaper then the custom.

    Hi Gnost65! Welcome to the forum!

    In general, Framus guitars are of excellent quality. My Framus Renegade Pro is by far the best built guitar I own (and I've had / still have plenty of Gibsons).

    You can still find the guitar on Framus' website as a discontinued model: en/Framus---Discontinued-Models--Spitfire--Spitfire-Custom--6-string--Pictures.html


    The Spitfire Custom likely has the following specs:

    Headstock: Flamed Maple headstock veneer with Mother-of-Pearl Framus logo
    Machineheads: Framus locking machine heads
    Nut: Framus low friction nut
    Neck Wood: One-piece maple neck
    Fretboard: Rosewood or maple fingerboard
    Inlay: Dots
    Fingerboard Radius: 12"
    Scale length: 25.5" (648 mm)
    Width Nut: 43 mm / 1.7"
    Width 12th fret: 52,5 mm / 2.1"
    Fret quantity matrial and size: 22 jumbo frets
    Frets: Plek Technology is used for Guitar Set Up
    Bodywood (Topwood / Backwood): US Swamp Ash body with Tone Chamber System (TCS), AAA Flamed Maple top (bookmatched)
    Pickups: Original Seymour Duncan pickups: SSL-1, SSL-1 (RW/RP), STB-4
    E-Compartment Cover: Easy-Access Cover
    Pot layout: 1x Volume / 1x Tone P/P for splitting humbuckers
    Switch: Framus 5-way switch
    Function of switch: -
    Pickguard: -
    Bridge System: Wilkinson vibrato by Framus
    Strap system: Warwick security locks
    Construction: Bolt-in
    Colour Possibilities Righthand: High Polish Finish
    Color Possibilities Lefthand: Available as right-handed or left-handed
    Hardware colour: Chrome
    String label String gauges: Framus Nickel Plated Steel strings (.009" - .046")
    Weight: 3,3 kg
    Included accessories: Including Framus User Kit


    So all in all, a very nice guitar on paper, especially with the Seymour Duncan pickups.

    However, the only real way you can know if the guitar is right for you is to go and play it before you buy it.
