Framus D-Series models are based on the guitars of the Framus Teambuilt German Pro Series and the Custom Shop models. The pickups of the Framus D-Series are manufactured by Seymour Duncan USA (WH-1: Fishman), the fingerboards are made of Tigerstripe ebony, and left-handed versions are available without surcharge. Warwick Security Locks, Cleartone Strings, and a Deluxe RockBag are all included.
Available from June, there are seven models in the new range: Diablo Pro, Diablo Progressive X, Diablo Supreme, Panthera Supreme, Panthera Pro 7,Phil XG Artist Line and the WH-1 Artist Line (not available in the U.S.A. and Germany).
Prices range from £792.08 inc VAT for a Diablo Pro up to £926.88 for a Panthera Supreme with a wife range of colour and finish options.
