Framus Legacy Acoustic Jörg Nassler Signature Model

When German acoustic guitarist, singer and percussionist Jörg Nassler (LIAISONG) played and demonstrated the all-massive Framus FD 28 Dreadnought Legacy Acoustic guitar models at Frankfurt Musikmesse in April 2016, he immediately felt the magic of these fine instruments. They became his favourite guitars. Framus created forJörg a hand-crafted, FD 28 based signature model, available optionally with or without cutaway, and with or without Fishman Prefix Premium Blend Onboard Preamp (PRO.-MAT-AP7).The neck width is 48 mm.

Jörg says about his signature guitar: “Framus successfully built an incredible, versatile instrument with unlimited potential. Both with finger style or when playing with a pick, whether delicate song accompaniment, open tunings or expressive melody over any positions and volumes, it makes an excellent figure in all disciplines.That certainly is because of the meticulous selection of wood and other components like the handcrafted manufacturing quality in every detail.Above all, the intention of not building just any guitar; they built a guitar with a soul. A very aesthetically pleasing, high-class instrument that goes beyond expectations.”

The models without cutaway are already available; the instruments with cutaway will follow approximately mid-November 2016.

The suggested retail price (MSRP) for the Framus Legacy Acoustic Jörg Nassler Signature modelis incl. VAT, depending on the version between 1308,90 GBPand 1780,15 GBP. The price includes a brown deluxe hard shell Rockcase.
