Framus — Streetwalker With New Headstock [ Musikmesse 2007 ]

United States
28 March 2007 — A reworking of design and technical components is called “face-lifting” in the automobile industry. The Streetwalker has got a similar redesign at Framus. As it had the traditional 3-on-a-side headstock design so far — characteristic for Framus —, now a headstock was designed, which takes the curving of the body and adequately finalizes it. The tuners hereby are ordered 6-in-line, the Framus logo is made of pure nacre.

The remaining construction of the Streetwalker was not changed: as being usual so far, it is equipped with the proven pickup-combination Pearly Gates / Hot Rails humbuckers and a Seymour Duncan SSL-5 single-coil, where both humbuckers can be switched-off by pulling the pull/push-volume-pot in support of the neck single-coil, being switched on then. Another specialty of this Framus model is the exclusive availability in a high-polish Black or Cream White finish. The Maple Neck is covered with an Oil finish, the Rosewood fingerboard is equipped with shark-fin inlays. The licensed Floyd Rose tremolo allows — in combination with the locking nut — dive-bombs without re-tuning.

The new headstock of the Streetwalker is — by the way — the same as it can be found on the Morrigan, the most spectacular Framus novelty of the year 2007. The 7-string Streetwalker — in contrast — will still be built with the traditional Framus-headstock.
