About the Guitar:
Framus started solid body guitar manufacturing in 1958. The Hollywood model, with which the history of the Frankish solid body guitar began, was actually still a hollow body construction and consisted of the sides frame with the top and back glued on. But out of this quickly developed a simple, massive construction.
Then starting in the sixties the solid body guitars were developed featuring pickups, more knobs, more switches. as well as diverse and sometimes active electronics; the most famous being the half-mechanical organ effect. Later in the seventies came the Nashville series, specially designed in Nashville, USA, which was a high-quality guitar and bass line that is considered a Framus highlight for that type of instrument.
This guitar features a preamplifier generating an 'organ' effect. Neck is C-shaped with 21 frets. The guitar was also equiped with a muter which has been removed.
This guitar was part of the guitar collection of guitarist Willy Pultz.
