Framus Expands Legacy Acoustic Series

The new instruments feature solid spruce tops with East Indian rosewood back and sides.

Markneukirchen, Germany (November 30, 2015) -- As previously announced in the spring, the Framus Legacy Acoustic Series will expand with some very interesting models. New in the range are instruments with solid spruce top, solid back and solid sides made from East Indian Rosewood. 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. Featuring solid spruce top (back and sides made of laminated mahogany), these are powerful sounding twelve string guitars, available optionally without or with cutaway, with or without Fishman pickup system and in various finishes.

For a powerful sound, all Framus Legacy acoustic guitars are equipped with extremely durable Cleartone Acoustic Strings, which are coated for extra long life. Framus Legacy Acoustics have already satisfied many customers and received countless positive reviews from around the world. We are sure that all new models will also convince and inspire. Most of the new models are already available, some will follow at the end of January 2016.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
