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

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.
