Framus? Strato/Jazzmaster 3 pickup offset

Postby highhat » Wed Aug 23, 2017 5:03 pm

So, picked this up at a local muzak store that has a pawn shop complex..at any rate, what do you guys think? Plays and sounds like a dream, although someone painted over the headstock (from my understanding but I've seen others look similar) so not sure how to remove that misstep. Nonetheless, a decent offset at a sweet price. And it's a framus..or is it...

Looks groovy!

Looks like a Framus to me (although, I couldn't tell you which model).

I'd just leave the paint on the headstock. :idk:

I don't have a pedalboard. If I did, it'd be worth approximately 666 Metal Zones.

Right, that's the thing. It's a bit different than a normal Strato, and I had seen it mentioned somewhere as being a jazzmaster Strato. I love how it plays and sounds though, so cool find. Not sure of the year tho...?

Yeah, I'm not a Framus expert. Not good with the years. It looks pretty much exactly like this one though:

Damn, that is a sweet looking guitar. Are those p90s or jazzys?

Good question. They sound more like p90s. Pretty much a sound of its own. With a little tweaking, it can get near that cool glassy tone of my CIJ Jazzmaster.
