Framus has added a lower cost (Chinese made) ‘D Series’ version of its Idolmaker guitar.
The features of the Framus D-Series Idolmaker include: mahogany body with AAAA-flamed maple top, set mahogany neck with tigerstripe ebony fingerboard, Nirvana Black Transparent High Polish finish, 22 nickel silver jumbo frets, graphite nut, Seymour Duncan SH-1n (neck) and SH-4b (bridge) pickups, volume and tone controls, 3-way pickup selector, Framus machines, Warwick Security Locks, Tune-o-matic bridge and chrome hardware. Left-handed version without surcharge. A Deluxe RockBag is included.
Framus claims its D-Series are manufactured with the same high-quality requirements as the Warwick RockBass Series instruments and that the guitars also undergo extensive final inspection, first in China and then again in Markneukirchen/Germany. They will be available from July.
