Framus goes for Chinese takeaway

Framus, the Warwick offshoot better known for its German made guitars, has bowed to the inevitable and is now offering the Chinese made D-Series, made, the company says: ‘…with the same high quality requirements as the Warwick RockBass Series instruments. The Framus D-Series electric guitars also undergo extensive final inspection, first in China and then again in Markneukirchen/Germany’.

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.
