Framus Television Teambuilt Pro

German-built to high quality standards and equipped with top-notch hardware and electronics, the Framus Television is inspiring to play. You’d be hard-pressed to find a guitar at any price with better fretwork, and the semi-hollow design makes the Television feel very alive. Its Duncan pickups provide a vast range of sounds—from Tele twang to fuzzed-out humbucker filth—and its push-pull coil tap yields big sonic dividends.
