GUEST,282RA Tech: My new guitar + the new Fender Strat VG (2) RE: Tech: My new guitar + the new Fender Strat VG 27 Nov 07

Whoops. I cut the whole first paragraph out of my post so here it is:

Bought a new acoustic. It's by Framus and appears to be 5/196 model, what's known as a Texan. Actually it looks like 5/1961 but there is no such designation listed at their sight. Might be a 5/196 with a lowercase L or maybe it's an upper case I. No idea when it was built. The one below has the same basic shape and the same design such as the tailpiece/bridge, headboard, etc. The sides and back aren't black though. The back is arched like on an archtop but the top is flat like a flat top. The nut is metal and the fretboard has a zero fret--the only acoustic I own that has one. The neck is like an electric in shape and handling and joins to the body that way--no heel--it bolts to the body by sliding into a big wooden block. Very nice warmth and richness of tone.
