Welcome to another fine guitar from The Old Europe! Please make sure to read the entire description below carefully, and look at all the pictures.

General introduction and background:

Very nice and funky Framus J-370 “SG-style” guitar. This one has a 76A date stamp, dating it to January 1976. This guitar is one of the oddest of the Framus catalogue, as it combines an SG-shape with a JM or Jaguar-style trem and a ST-like Shadow singlecoil in the bridge with a P90 style Billy Lorento pickup in the neck position – all very odd ingredients, combined they make a very charming mixture.

Please watch the video!

As always, the instrument has been serviced completely and is ready to be played immediately.

Measurements, weight and other specs:

-Scale:  628 mm

-Nut: ca 4,1 cm

-Weight: 2,8 kg

-Pickups: two original singlecoils measuring about 5,92k (bridge) and 5,25k (neck). Controlled with a master volume and –tone, 3 way toggle switch.

-Body: solid light weight wood, likely birch or poplar

-Neck: surprisingly fat C made of maple with a rosewood fingerboard, flat radius of 12’’, low but wide frets.

 

Condition:

-Body: Good condition with some dings and dongs.

-Neck: neck is straight, trussrod works. The frets are in good condition with no overly visibly crevasses, no buzz or deadnotes.

-Hardware: in good shape and functional; a small fissure in the pickguard has been glued and stabilized from the interior. The tip of the toggle was missing and has been replaced.

-Electrics: everything works as it should. New input jack.

-Originality: all original except for the tip of the toggle, the input jack and some screws.

 

Sound and Playability:

-Playability and string action: A very good playability, 1,9 mm string action dialed in at the 12th fret.

-Sound: a very trebly, chimey sound in which the amplifying properties of the pickguard come to play. Please listen to the video for a sound demo (it’s from a different guitar, same model)

 

Repairs, Service:
