Framus'' Diablo Series gets an upgrade for 2010

Anaheim, CA (January 12, 2010) -- Framus' successful Diablo Series has been completely revised for 2010. The body shaping has been ergonomically optimized, the pickup repertoire has been expanded, and die wood options now offer a broad range of body and neck combinations. The models Diablo Supreme and Diablo Supreme X are now the new flagships of the series. Both feature an elegant arched bookmatched AAA flamed maple top and a rosewood fingerboard, but retain otherwise a completely independent character that makes them shine each on its own:

While the Framus Diablo Supreme conveys a classic appeal in terms of sound, sustain and feeling with its mahogany body and maple top, set mahogany neck, double humbucker outfitting and TonePros Wraparound bridge, the Framus Diablo Supreme X is a versatility marvel with its swamp ash body and maple top, bolt-in flamed maple neck, Framus by Wilkinson vibrato and 3 pickup configuration.

A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.
