Framus Announce Framus Wolf Hoffman Artist Series

Framus Announce Framus Wolf Hoffman Artist Series -

Framus presents a world-wide innovation: the Framus Wolf Hoffmann Artist Series.

For the first time the common production process of music instruments is turned upside down. Usually the woods are coming from The Far East and the final assembling is done in Germany. But we're doing it exaclty vice versa.

The tone wood is the soul of every single guitar. That's why Framus is attaching importance to the quality of the wood. As a consequence all woods are hand-selected, dried professionally and processed with the best machines available in our manufactory in Markneukirchen, Germany. Of course this includes the pioneering Invisible Fret Technology as well as the illuminating side dots.

After our excellent educated master guitar makers have set the foundation in Markneukirchen, the workpiece is shipped over to our partners in China, where the guitar is assembled with parts of the highest quality. EMG SA and 81 pickups, a Floyd Rose License tremolo, MEC electronics and potentiometers round off the looks of this extraordinary guitar - a mouth-watering instrument for every guitarist.

The new Framus Wolf Hoffmann Artist Series offers a unique symbiosis of the benefits of both, the German as well as the Chinese production. With this kind of work-sharing Framus once again reinforces its pioneering role in the industry and sets new standards.

Wolf Hoffmann himself will again be at our booth at the NAMM show to present this new model personally.

The Framus Wolf Hoffmann Artist Series guitar will be available starting from July 2014.
