FC 44 SMV Concert, with EQ

High end concert shaped beauty by Framus. 

The Legacy series 44 models are some of the highest models available from the Framus factory, and the beautiful FC 44 SMV Concert (with EQ) model we received for demos is definitely an eye and ear candy. The solid AA Maple back and AAA flamed Maple sides are great looking and complimented by the vintage dark sunburst finish, so does the solid AA Sitka Spruce top. And the florentine cutaway….oh we like the florentine cutaway. Sound wise, the FR FC 44 SMV VDS CE is an open and clear instrument with solid lows and round highs. The Fishman Prefix Plus T pickup is a great addition to the guitar, as it allows you to shape your amplified tone to your liking with dedicated bass, treble notch and mid + mid frequency controls. Of course that you can get it also without a pickup and if you fancy a different finish you’re in luck, as the FC 44 SMV Concert is also available in Natural Transparent High Polish and Natural Transparent Satin finish.
