GUEST,Anne Croucher Tech: help on background of framus guitar (4) RE: Tech: help on background of framus guitar 06 Mar 05

the guitar does look more robust than my 6 string Framus Texan, with the metal stirup to hold the strings too, but the head does not seem to be pierced for 12 tensioners - has it ever been?

there is a distinct family resemblance, though my guitar is definitely in a cheaper mould - the head is not angled back like the pictured one, so it requires a metal brace above the nut to hold the strings down. That means it can be cut from a thinner piece of wood. Also, the tensioners are perpendicular to the head, not sunk into it like that one.

I have regularly been asked to sell my guitar, though could this be a well known chat up line in folk circles?
