1965 German made Framus Strato de luxe
I purchased this guitar after having been given a complete overhaul from the seller, a guitar tech and dealer in Germany – disassembled, cleaned and serviced. Vibrato and all mechanisms have been dismantled and cleaned/restored. All electrics checked, cleaned and ground controlled. All pickups, switches, pots and wiring harness are original. Some switches seem to do nothing but may be phase in/out? Unsure but all pickups work perfectly and sound great. Neck adjusted for great action and fretboard refretted with Wagner frets, dressed, cleaned, sanded and oiled. Neck doesn’t look the best up close but is smooth as and feels incredibly comfortable to play. Refinished in black nitro and lightly aged to match the patina of hardware. This guitar looks SO good in black!
– build year 1965
– solid body respray in black nitrocellulose
– rosewood fretboard, 22 frets (refretted)
– 3x original Framus single coil pickups
– organ effect? (Unsure what this does)

Will consider part trade for hi-end effects – particularly after; Microcosm, black hole symmetry, Enzo, SY200, blooper. Etc. Msg to discuss.
No case but can post Aus-wide at buyers expense.
