About This Listing

Up for sale is an incredible electric nylon string (classical) guitar. The guitar is a masterpiece and unique model from german luthier Frank Krocker. As you can see from the photos, the guitar's strength is in its compact form, it can be assembled and disassembled within seconds and fitted into a very small but quality gig bag, and carried anywhere. Don´t be fooled, this IS NOT just a traveling guitar. Many well-known guitarists such as Pat Metheny, Ralph Towner, Badi Assad, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Paolo Bellinati have played FrameWorks through the years. 

There is no feedback problem, that you get with other acoustic or electro-acoustic guitars, and the body-less form is great as a late-night practice instrument. 

This model, new, now costs $3500 - 4000, depending on options and the synth-access option. Buy this one at an incredible price and also save the customs charges!

Some people may confuse this guitar with a Yamaha Silent guitar which is designed for silent practice and travel. This guitar, while it would make a fantastic travel guitar, is a professional-level instrument. It has under saddle RMC pickups for both acoustic sound and 13 Pin Synthesizer access. The tracking is fantastic.

Here is some descriptive information from the Frameworks Website:
MODERN CLASSIC The MODERN CLASSIC is dedicated to contemporary jazz-, pop- & rock players. It combines outstanding nylon-string sound with playability that suits best the requirements of modern musical styles.

The different ”body” shape, with the frame-to-neck connection at the 14th/18th fret, allows even greater access to the higher frets. Optional also available with a built-in MIDI interface.
