Looking For Info on Framus Gaucho Guitar

I am considering repairs to a Framus Gaucho Guitar that has belonged to my bride for the past 40+ years. The neck I believe is a "bolt-on" mahogany without a truss rod. It has always, despite a set up that has brought the action at the nut as low as possible, results in 1/4"+ at the 12th fret. Since I don't think the original neck can be straightened, I'd like to have a luthier replace the neck. Any opinions on whether the work would devalue the guitar and whether the work is possible ? Mostly a sentimental endeavor but with the intent of making the guitar a playable piece. It still has great sound and is in overall better than average condition.
Label inside reads a follows (typical Framus Bavarian Werks)
Gaucho 5/194
Ser. No. 23813 69E
In addition, rubber-stamped on label to right of the serial number, approximately 1/2" tall, black Block letters "EX". Anyone know what that might indicate?

Thanks for the help, Mark Zee

I just brought a framus acoustic guitar. I think it might be a collector's item. The model number is 74A 05301 and the serial number is 001121. Can you tell what it is worth and how old is it? Thanks Woody

Framus 74A 05301 S/N 102450

Can anyone out there date this guitar for me or provide any info? I bought it an auction but know much about Framus. Sunburst finish, moustache-bridge, thin neck, and has a great warm-full tone.

I think if it's an acoustic guitar that it is the Framus Goucho model the model 5/94 that is

Re: just brought a framus acoustic guitar

I'm in the middle of getting one of these back into shape. - a November 62. I really like the thick neck. The one I'm working on lost its pickguard somewhere along the line - I'd like it to look as original as possible - does anyone have any close up pictures or tracings of the pickguard.
