Framus Annouce New Panthera 7-String and Diablo 7-String Guitars

United States
English
14 May 2010 — Fans of heavy electric guitar tones and drop-tuning styles will love the two new first class 7-string models from Markneukirchen-based manufacturer Framus. Both 7-strings have an arched mahogany body. The Panthera 7-string has a set neck and the Diablo 7-String a bolt-in neck. Active Seymour Duncan Blackout Phase I pickups on both models easily demonstrate why they are affectionately known as “metal monsters”. They offer more headroom, along with powerful, full-bodied yet clean distinguishable low end frequencies, than conventional pickups.

Both models feature TonePros tune-o-matic bridges, which are unparalleled in string vibration transfer and Framus locking machines.
