New Framus Diablo Models Supreme and Supreme X

United States
English
11th Jan 2010 — The successful Framus Diablo Series has been completely revised for 2010. The body shaping has been ergonomically optimized, the pickup repertoire has been expanded, and die wood options now offer a broad range of body and neck combinations. The models Diablo Supreme and Diablo Supreme X are now the new flagships of the series. Both feature an elegant arched bookmatched AAA flamed maple top and a rosewood fingerboard, but retain otherwise a completely independent character that makes them shine each on its own:

While the Framus Diablo Supreme conveys a classic appeal in terms of sound, sustain and feeling with its mahogany body and maple top, set mahogany neck, double humbucker outfitting and TonePros Wraparound bridge, the Framus Diablo Supreme X is a versatility marvel with its swamp ash body and maple top, bolt-in flamed maple neck, Framus by Wilkinson vibrato and 3 pickup configuration.
