Framus texan bass

I have a Framus Texan acoustic bass (conversion neck) with a 31.5" scale length. It sounds better than most plywood ones in the music store going for $500. Clean, crisp notes on the low E string.

It's gotta be worth at least $100 because I'd rather have it than a Guild in a bar room fight. That sucker must have 2x4's for braces. It's heavy! Solid top, as far as I can tell. I think it would make a good canoe paddle and still be playable afterwards.

Have a nice day,
Bill

Vintage Framus Western

I was given this guitar as a young beginning guitar. The internal label is intact and states the following:
Western 5/195
S/N: 17929
Tested By: Muller

at the bottom of the label is a stamp: EX

Built in W. Germany

Does anyone know where I can find further info on my guitar and it's worth? Just ensuring that I have enough insurance covering my belongings. Thank you.

These were good guitars - archtops had laminated tops (that were making guitars cheeper), but Black Rose model was
solid spruce top thing. Great... Gibson also was trying to make more affordable guitars - just compare their L50,40-48 etc series.
Coming back to Framus - they were the strongest competitor to Hofner; all of them (hofner too) used to have similar weak points - natural glue at the neck joints etc lead to the process of neck resetting etc. But in principal - I love them all and...you cant buy anything similar today but these vintage archtop guitars...Except for Eastman, D'Angelico etc. Dont want to talk about modern chinese Loar or anything similar:)

better than a 4000 guitar

Hey everyone I have no idea of the worth of my guitar iether but all I can say is its the best $400 ive ever spent on a guitar..Its the western acoustic with bolt on neck and sounds like a dream ..no other guitar has ever matched the sound of this guitar. I have two of the 6 strings from late 60s to early 70s and just got the older one yesterday. Some of them sound like crap tho I guess its like all guitar companies some are low quality and others are hight quality..

Look at the Framus vintage instrument site:
http://www.framus-vintage.de/?cl=EN
You can find your instrument according to the type Western, classical, jazz, etc. Most models have a new list price from the mid 70s.
Look under the tab Framus/Dating for details of the label inside the guitar. Yours should be a dated Dec. 1961.

A friend of mine recently happened on a Framus Werke the labels are intake. Model 5/294 Serial# 2607 Mulike Schmidt 6 Frankford a.M.,Berlinger Strake 26 Bavaria W.Germany. If anyone can help me on when it was made and or value, I would greatly appreciate it!
Thanx, Lisa

Re: RE: Old Framus need to know value!!!

Well, I'll tell you what. From what I have heard, Framus guitars, if in good condition, are actually worth quite a bit of money. Nothing outrageous, but at least a couple thousand dollars. I am actually wondering what my 1964 Framus Television is worth. Go to my line in the discussions. Sorry for lack of actual numbers on $.

Framus-Werke Model 64264 Made in West Germany Bavaria

When? Value? Anyione?

Re: RE: Old Framus need to know value!!!

I have the same model, a very bright 12 string guitar, with a moustache bridge, beautiful guitar, serial number 3858. These are very nice guitars, but don't fetch as much as you might think. I would think that the value of this guitar is about $1100, but in some markets, you would only see a used sale price of $200-300. It's quite a shame, considering the woods used, and the design precision.

Framus Texan

I have a Texan #741(then there is a space then #05311.

Re: Framus Texan
