Framus Unveils Legacy Acoustic Series

All four basic models—Dreadnought, Folk, Grand Auditorium and Parlor—are crafted with either solid spruce or solid mahogany tops.

Germany (March 6, 2015) -- Framus now starts a revival with the Legacy acoustic guitar series. Hand crafted at the highest level, the Framus legacy series acoustic guitars are superbly built and equipped, tastefully decorated, and comfortable to play. They come to the market with the best possible price/performance ratio. And: they sound great!

Framus guitars were and are workhorses, companions and inspirations for many of the the biggest names in the music world: Elvis Presley with his Framus Tango and Riviera, John Lennon with the 12-string Hootenanny, David Bowie with his Texan E12, Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Ray Davies and many, many more with different guitars from the seemingly endless variety of Framus guitars!

Framus is proud of this historical legacy and is obliged to continue it with the newly developed Framus legacy series. Four basic models, Dreadnought, Folk, Grand Auditorium and Parlor – all are crafted with either solid spruce or solid mahogany tops – a time proven quality, tone standard and basic instrument structure which defines the outstanding legacy series. You will find models with or without cutaway, purely acoustics or with electronics and, of course, from different tone woods and in different finishes.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
