Framus is a German guitar and amplifier brand which was founded in 1946 by Fred Wilfer. Unfortunately, due to the rapidly changing market at the time, the company was forced into bankruptcy in 1975. However the Framus name was revived in 1995 after being bought by German bass guitar brand Warwick. The company now successfully produces a wide range of high-end guitars and tube amplifiers.
Framus are one of the few bigger name companies out there who are truly ‘lefty friendly’ as they produce nearly all of their guitars in a left handed format at no extra charge. The only guitars which are not available left handed are the Vintage Series and the Earl Slick signature series. Great work from Framus indeed!
There are far too many guitars to fit in a single article so I have broken the choices down into their ‘families’. Descriptions will be brief as the guitars in each family each differ from one another in various ways, so be sure to check out the Framus website for detailed specs. Besides, you just come here for the pretty pictures right? ;)
