Fantastic example of a 1967 Framus Capri arch-top electric Jazz guitar in black to red sunburst with one pick-up mounted in the original floating guard with small volume and tone controls. Germanys answer to the demand for archtop guitars with a flare for style only seen from European guitar makers (most notable the Italian instruments), this Germanic expression is certainly not short on panache itself. Modern lines and curves with striking color, a feast for the eyes and in near perfect condition. Super slender maple neck with noteworthy saw tooth lamination joint at heel, pressed and curved laminated maple back sides and top. Bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot markers, one pickup in a floating guard with volume and tone controls, floating adjustable bridge with individual bridge saddles and a silver trapeze tailpiece. Straight neck with low action and a working truss rod, all original parts and finish, no modifications or repairs, no aftermarket parts. A rare model in fantastic condition, suitable for collecting or playing, comes with a newer hard shell case. Now only, $1499. Thanks VGA
