Framus 5/60 "Missouri" 1962

 Model with solid pine top and all mahogany back and sides, with cutaway. Built in 1962 "Bavarian series. It incorporates an adjustable soul. The neck is very thin and comfortable, recently adjusted.

 Originally these guitars were all mahogany, including the top, but some models were made carved out of spruce, like this one.

 It has a built-in "Schaller" pickup from the early 70s. Since the sixties Schaller manufactured Hofner pickups. It is a humbucker with a very good signal and very balanced.

 It works perfectly without noise or buzz, and the height of the strings is comfortable to play

It sounds very good, it is well into the octave, and the electronics also work perfectly, without noise or hum. The original headstock has been replaced by a Schaller oil-based one.

The frets have been polished, the fingerboard has been cleaned and conditioned, for a comfortable and pleasant playing.

It is ready to touch and enjoy. New steel strings 0.11
