Framus Guitars now come standard with Graphtech Black TUSQ Saddles

United States
14 May 2010 — Being proactive, open-minded towards innovative technologies, having great attention to detail, implementing constant improvements, having qualified personnel, modern production premises and using the best materials available are just some of the reasons why the German Framus brand has become one of the most important European electric guitar manufacturers in the last 15 years. The renowned Canadian ‘parts’ manufacturer Graphtech, with its state-of-the-art products and cutting edge technologies, fits the Framus model perfectly, both in terms of quality materials and superior production.

Starting at the 2010 Summer NAMM in Nashville, Tennessee, all Framus guitars (with the exception of Floyd Rose bridge models) will be outfitted with Graphtech’s Black TUSQ nuts. Graphtech has been a leading innovator in this area for some years now, and TUSQ nuts are the most requested guitar nuts among manufacturers, as well as in music stores and guitar repair shops as replacements. Graphtech Black TUSQ Saddles are made of a self-lubricating Teflon-impregnated special material that is called “synthetic black ivory“. It’s hard as bone, has ideal characteristics to be used as nut material and can be worked on with ease.

GraphTech Black TUSQ Saddles reduce friction and thus improve tuning stability and durability. GraphTech Black TUSQ Saddles also transfer the string vibration freely to the neck. The end result is an extremely rich and brilliant tone as well as an increase in sustain.
