Markneukirchen, Germany (November 30, 2015) -- As previously announced in the spring, the Framus Legacy Acoustic Series will expand with some very interesting models.

These new all solid Framus Legacy Dreadnoughts are available with or without cutaway, with or without Fishman pickup system, and in Vintage Satin Natural Tinted and Vintage High Polish Natural Tinted finishes. A case is included with these Framus Legacy Acoustics.

The Framus Legacy Acoustic Jumbo family has also grown. Already available are the new Maple Jumbos (top made of solid spruce, back and sides are made of laminated maple) as well as the Framus Legacy Mahogany Jumbos (top made of solid mahogany, back and sides made of laminated mahogany). Each model is available with or without cutaway, with or without Fishman pickup system and in various finishes.

Also 12-string dreadnoughts now enrich the Framus Legacy Acoustic Series.
