437_Framus-FJ-14-M-NS-CE.jpg

The big Mahogany lady of the Legacy series by Framus. If big bodied, deep sounding guitar at a budget is what you are after then you must check the Framus Legacy series FD 14 M NS CE Jumbo. It is an all Mahogany guitar with much charm and character. It sounds like it looks, deep and warm with focus on the low and mid frequencies, great for pick strumming and drop D. The FD 14 M NS CE here is stage ready with the Fishman Sonicore pickup combined with the Isys + Preamp, it has a cutaway too. If you do not need electronics and cutaway and would like to keep it simple, check the FD 14 M by Framus as it is the same model without these features.

438_Framus-FD-28-SR-VSNT-CE.jpg

An all solid strumming machine. Sitting at the top of it's group, the 28 models are all solid guitars built with great attention to details. The FD28 Dreadnought with cut & eq version is designed for the pro, working musician. The combination of solid East-Indian Rosewood body, solid Spruce top and Ebony fingerboard results in a fast, accurate and clear guitar which is fantastic with pick or fingers. Not only does it sound good acoustically, it is also amplified using the Fishman Prefix Plus T pickup, with it's preamp being one of the most versatile ones in the market. The FR FD 28 SR VSNT CE is also available with Natural Transparent High Polish finish and/or without cutaway, pickup and preamp.

Framus FD 14 S Dreadnought, with Cutaway & EQ
441_Framus-FD-14-S-BK-CE.jpg

Stage ready beauty by Framus. The FD 14 S by Framus is simply put, a beautiful guitar. The black finish we received for demos really looks great, but we have no doubt that both other finish options, Natural Transparent High Polish and Natural Transparent Satin finish, look great too. Solid Sitka Spruce top gives the guitar a nice attack which brings the sound out and makes it a great all arounder. Of course that in order to be an all arounder a pickup is needed and there Framus chose the Fishman Sonicore pickup combined with the Isys + preamp. The guitar is also equipped with ebony bridge pins which enhance the sound. No Cutaway and/or pickup models in the various finishes are also available.

Framus FD 14 M 12-String Dreadnought, with Cutaway & EQ
435_Framus-FD-14-M-NS-CE-12.jpg

The all mahogany budget 12 string by Framus. Strumming on a 12 string guitar is fun but may be challenging as there are simply more strings to press. The standard size 1.87" / 48mm nut width of the Framus FD 14 M NS CE 12 makes things a little easier as you do not need to cope with a too wide nut and the relatively slim neck shape helps too. The FD 14 M NS CE 12 is deep and kind of dry sounding thanks to its all Mahogany body. The Natural Transparent Satin is elegant and well made and the on board Fishman Isys + preamp and Sonicore piezo combination is a great addition which makes the Framus FD 14 M 12-String Dreadnought, with Cutaway & EQ a great 12 string choice for your collection.

Framus FJ 14 SMV 12-String Jumbo, with Cutaway & EQ
444_Framus-FJ-14-SMV-VNT-CE2-12.jpg

An all Maple 12 string guitar by Framus. Strumming on a 12 string guitar is fun but may be challenging as there are simply more strings to press. The standard size 1.87" / 48mm nut width of the Framus FJ 14 SMV VNT CE2 makes things a little easier as you do not need to cope with a too wide nut and the relatively slim neck shape helps too. The FJ 14 SMV VNT CE2 is a light sounding guitar thanks to its all Maple body, perfect for that 12 string strumming sound. Both finish options: the Vintage Transparent High Polish Natural Tinted which is displayed in the photo and the Natural Transparent Satin, compliments the guitar a lot. The on board Fishman Isys + preamp and Sonicore piezo combination is a great addition which makes the Framus FJ 14 SMV 12-String Jumbo, with Cutaway & EQ a great 12 string which got the looks and sound for the stage.

Framus FG 14 M Grand Auditorium, with Cutaway & EQ
436_Framus-FG-14-M-NS-CE.jpg

An all Mahogany warrior. If you like Mahogany guitars you ought to try out the cutaway & EQ version of the Framus Legacy Series FG 14 M Grand Auditorium guitar. Solid Mahogany top combined with Mahogany body produces warm mid-rangy sound which compliments the body size of the guitar, which is surprisingly loud. Another reason to check the FG 14 M is the 1.87" / 48mm nut width. Being larger than the usual nut on an acoustic guitar, it fits better for players with larger hands. The Fishman Sonicore pickup combined with their Isys + preamp is easy to use and delivers good acoustic/electric sound and the cutaway eases the playability above the 12th fret. The FG 14 M in both colour options is a traditional guitar from a traditional acoustic manufacturer.

Framus FG 14 SV Grand Auditorium, with Cutaway & EQ
430_Framus-FG-14-SV-VNT-CE.jpg

When playability meets budget. The Framus Legacy Series FG14 SV VNT CE delivers great playability and much more for a sweet price. It is a comfortable guitar to strum, pick and what not! Thanks to the 48mm / 1.87" nut width your fingers will have plenty of room when playing complex chords so dead notes can be avoided. The satin finished neck is smooth to play on and the cutaway allows easy access to the higher frets. The FG 14 SV VNT CE is stage ready thanks to the Fishman Isys + preamp and Sonicore piezo combination. The system is easy to use but essentially it has all you need to get the tone right. The Framus FG 14 SV VNT CE comes in either Vintage Transparent High Polish Natural Tinted or Vintage Transparent Satin Natural Tinted finish. Models with no cutaway and EQ are available as well.

433_Framus-FR-FD-14-M-NS-CE.jpg

Big Mahogany amplified sound for small money. With it's Mahogany body and solid Mahogany top, the Framus Legacy FR FD 14 M NS CE is all you need to start your way in the guitar world or to add a nice Mahogany guitar to your collection. It's a pretty versatile guitar, but don't expect it to be extremely quick in response, it is an all Mahogany guitar after all. The 1.77 / 45mm nut width really sits well in palm and the guitar is overall easy to play. If you want to go natural all the way then the NS finish is the perfect finish for you, however if you want to add a little spice to your guitar check the VS finish. The FR FD 14 M NS CE comes with a cutaway and Fishman pickup system, both add to the comfort and character of the guitar. If you like this guitar but prefer a no pickup or no cutaway model be sure to check out the Framus FD 14 M model on TonePedia.

Framus FD 28 Nashville Dreadnought with Cutaway & EQ
439_Framus-FD-28-N-SR-SBT-CE.jpg

Supreme guitar by Framus. When you think of it, Framus guitars have been an integral part of our most beloved music in the past 70 years or so. Elvis Presley, John Lennon, David Bowie and so many great artists had played these guitars, releasing hits that changed the face of music. The FD 28 Nashville Dreadnought explains well what attracted these legendary musicians to play Framus guitars. The craftsmanship on the FR FD 28 N SR SBT CE is magnificent, yes it is made in China and yes it is extremely well built. Each piece of wood looks just great and the tone is round, balanced and juicy. The FD 28 Nashville Dreadnought is also available without a cutaway and pickup, but we strongly suggest taking it with the pickup as the Fishman Prefix Plus T and it's versatile preamp works really well with it. Both amplified and non amplified FD 28 Nashville Dreadnought models come in Vintage Transparent Sunburst High Polish, Natural Transparent High Polish and Natural Transparent Satin finish.

Lets go fingerpicking. The Framus FF 14M NS is an inexpensive sweet guitar for the fingerpicking beginner, blues finger style player and anyone who wants to have an inexpensive mahogany guitar for home or the road. The FF 14 M NS has the body measurement of a OOO acoustic guitar, it is a comfortable body size with body to neck joint at the 14th fret and a standard size nut width of 45mm / 1.77". As always with Framus guitars, also the FF 14 M has a variation with cutaway and pickup and also comes in different finishes.

Big Mahogany sound for small money. With it's Mahogany body and solid Mahogany top, the Framus Legacy FD 14 Dreadnought is all you need to start your way in the guitar world or to add a nice Mahogany guitar to your collection. It's a pretty versatile guitar, but don't expect it to be extremely quick in response, it is an all Mahogany guitar after all.

Framus FJ 14 SMV Jumbo, with Cutaway & EQ
447_Framus-FJ-14-SV-VNT-CE.jpg

Wonderful wood combination. With it's Solid A Spruce top and AAA flamed Maple body, the FR FJ 14 SMV VNT CE stands out, as it is simply great looking. Lower emphasis on bass frequencies and more apparent high mids make the Legacy series FJ 14 SMV CE a great choice for guitarists that play with a band, it cuts great through the mix and really stands out with clarity. We personally also liked it a lot when playing with fingers. The Isys + preamp and Sonicore pickup by Fishman are more than enough for it and great to have, although for the purists a non-amplified version of the FJ 14 SMV CE is available. Another finish option you may wanna check is the Natural Transparent Satin finish.

Framus FP 14 M Parlor, with EQ
443_Framus-FP-14-M-VS-E.jpg

Small Parlor for the blues player. Parlor guitars come back to the notion of acoustic guitar players around the world and the Framus FP 14 M VS E is fine example of how an inexpensive Parlor guitar can really spice up your guitar collection. That 12 fret, small body guitar produces dry and mid rangy sound which sits well on fingerpicking and hybrid. It is perfect for blues and you can take it on the road too. The FP 14 M model comes also in Natural Transparent Satin finish and without a pickup, although the Fishman Sonicore & Isys + combo is a fine addition to it.

Framus FD 14 S 12-String Dreadnought, with Cutaway & EQ
429_Framus-FR-FD-14-S-BK-CE-12.jpg

Framus' black beauty 12 string guitar. Strumming on a 12 string guitar is fun but may be challenging as there are simply more strings to press. The standard size 1.87" / 48mm nut width of the Framus FD 14 S BK CE 12 makes things a little easier as you do not need to cope with a too wide nut and the relatively slim neck shape helps too. The FD 14 S BK CE 12 is great looking in its solid black high polish finish, although if you're not into black finishes it is also available with Natural Transparent Satin finish. Having the on board Fishman Isys + preamp and Sonicore piezo combination adds one more reason to give the Framus FD 14 S BK CE 12 a go.

Framus FC 44 SMV Concert, with EQ
431_Framus-FR-FC-44-SMV-VDS-CE.jpg

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.

Another reason to check the FG 14 M is the 1.87" / 48mm nut width. Being larger than the usual nut on an acoustic guitar, it fits better for players with larger hands.
