New Framus Diablo Progressive and Progressive X Models

United States
English
15 March 2010 — Especially guitarists that belong to the hard & heavy category cannot avoid taking a look the brand new Framus Diablo models Progressive and Progressive X. Wood choice, hardware and pickups were selected with these musicians in mind: Mahogany body for a fat base tone, state-of-the-art hardware and Seymour Duncan Pickups formally invite to riff storms and speed of light solos. The Diablo Progressive is pure mahogany construction, with an arched top, set neck and a TonePros Wrap-Around one-piece bridge combined with 2 extremely powerful and silent Seymour Duncan Active Blackout pickups that will rock the stage. The Diablo Progressive X on the other hand comes with the proven Framus bolt-in construction, maple neck and an Original Floyd Rose tremolo bridge that delivers extreme dive bombs with ease.

Available as a right- or left-handed version with no additional cost.
